Instructional Course on GreenLight for BPH at the American Urological Association Annual Congress in Boston

This time I went to Boston to participate in one of the Instructional courses the Congress organizes on specific topics. I spoke about the techniques I described for the treatment of BPH with the GreenLight laser, anatomic vaporization and En Bloc GreenLight Enucleation of the prostate.

I was very satisfied to see that other authors are publishing on these techniques with excellent results. 

One of the presentations in the congress was the first american experience with GreenLight enucleation, a paper coming from Massachussets General Hospital, Harvard University, by Dr. Shahin Tatatabaei and his team.

Two years ago I was in Harvard helping Dr. Tabatabaei with his first steps with this technique and before that he came to visit us in Bulgaria, and now we see the fruits of that collaboration.

Other authors from Europe also published on this technique.

I am very happy to see that my little contribution to urology is coming alive and starting to influence positively the life of many patients.
