Spain cannot afford to lag behind in the use of laparoscopy, as the urological surgery technique of the 21st century." This is the view of the Spanish urology association, AEU, which has highlighted the "very low" availability in Spain of minimally-invasive surgery (MIS) for urological conditions. France has almost one hundred centres that routinely perform urological MIS, it argues, whereas in Spain there are only five such hospitals.
