COMMENT ABOUT US:
“Dear Guido, I was a great pleasure to come over to Milan meet you. The course was excellent! You convinced me that Supine PCNL is the way forward.
After I came back from Milan I performed 2 cases of Supine PCNL there was no problem in making the Tract. I am delighted that I learnt the procedure .
Thanks very much.” N.S.
