July 2021: VLOG

Professor Paolo Gontero discusses Blue Light Cystoscopy, with his perspective of the role of BLC in the surveillance setting and the potential role of biomarkers in its successful implementation.

Paolo Gontero holds the position of Full Professor of Urology at the University of Torino School of Medicine and Chairman of the Division of Urology, San Giovanni Battista Hospital (Molinette), Torino, Italy.

His main clinical interests are in the field of Surgical Uro-Oncology, devoted to Robotic and Laparoscopic oncological surgery of bladder, prostate and kidney cancers. He has strong expertise in minimally invasive live donor nephrectomy and reconstructive surgery of transplanted kidney.

He has authored and co-authored more than 350 publications in international journals (main interest in non-muscle invasive bladder cancer and prostate cancer). He is involved in international trials and working groups on the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities for bladder and prostate cancer. He is a panel member of the European Guidelines for non-muscle invasive bladder cancer.
