Dr. med. Sven Piesche

Dr. Sven Piesche, MD, pursued his medical studies at Ruprecht-Karls-University in Heidelberg and the University of California, San Francisco. He earned his doctoral degree with a focus on “Functional Magnetic Resonance Urography using the SIR-SE sequence” at the German Cancer Research Center, before commencing his surgical-urological specialist training.

Since 2008, Dr. Piesche has served as Senior Consultant Urologist at Sana Hospital, representing the field of endoscopy and laser urology. He has engaged in extensive scientific research in this area, presenting his findings at national and international conferences. In 2014, he was honored with a scientific award from the Southwest German Society of Urology for his studies on the characteristics, cutting effects, and penetration depths of holmium and thulium lasers, and was nominated for the prestigious CE-Alken Prize of the German CE-Alken Society.

This work finally resulted in the introduction of the HoLEP EPS (see also the website, an optimized pulse setting with higher pulse energy, that allows safer, easier and faster enucleation. As this setting demands a high laser performance, it was consequently implemented in JenaSurgicals MultiPuls HoPLUS Lasers. With approximately 1,500 prostate holmium laser enucleations (HoLEP) to his credit, Dr. Piesche is among the most experienced surgeons in Germany for this technique. He has contributed to its advancement and regularly conducts national and international workshops on the subject.

During the-two-day workshop in the unique Franconian city of Hof you will learn – aside from typical beer and food – all about the theoretical background of HoLEP-EPS as well as observe its effect during live-operations in the OR. Also endoscopic stone-surgery is included in the standard curriculum. Other types of laser-operations (e.g. Thulium enucleation) can be offered on request.
