Partial nephrectomy course in Belgium

Again I travelled to Belgium to participate in another course with Dr. Alex Mottrie at the OLV Hospital in Aalst. This time It was a partial nephrectomy course.

I spent three intensive days in the course and I enjoyed it thoroughly, as I could see and do many robotic operations. Dr. Mottrie was trying a new system that allows to use 3D reconstructions of the anatomy of the patient based in their own imaging studies (CT Scan, MRI) offered by the company  Visible Patient.

These 3D reconstruction systems allow to plan the operations carefully and to increase their safety. It was definitely a wonderful course and three days of total immersion in robotic surgery, I love it!
