Good day, Dr. Martín. It is an honor to have you here and to learn more about your outstanding career in the field of urology. Your expertise in robotic and laparoscopic techniques is truly impressive.

Good day, thank you for the invitation. It is a pleasure to share my experience and knowledge with you.

Let’s start by talking about your specialization in robotic and laparoscopic urology. You were one of the pioneers in introducing these techniques in Colombia. How was that experience, and how has it contributed to your professional development?

The introduction of robotic and laparoscopic urology in Colombia was an exciting challenge. At the time, there were few doctors specializing in these techniques, and being among the first allowed me to gain valuable experience and knowledge in the field. Over the years, I have been able to perfect these techniques and offer my patients less invasive and more effective treatment options.

In addition to your outstanding work in the medical field, you have been a pioneer in using social media to disseminate information about urology and establish a connection with your patients. How has that experience been, and what impact has it had on your medical practice?

Social media has been a powerful tool to reach more people and spread information about urology in an accessible and friendly way. Through platforms like Instagram, TikTok, and Facebook, I have been able to connect with my audience in a unique way and raise awareness about urinary problems and available treatments. This visibility has had a positive impact on my medical practice, as more people feel comfortable seeking my attention and guidance.

Undoubtedly, your presence on social media has made you the most followed urologist in Colombia. How do you manage this responsibility, and what motivated you to share your knowledge so openly?

Managing this responsibility has been a constant commitment. I understand that my presence on social media implies greater responsibility towards my audience and those seeking information about urology. The motivation behind sharing my knowledge openly is to provide people with a reliable source of information and debunk myths and taboos surrounding urinary problems. I believe it is important for people to have access to accurate and up-to-date information to make informed decisions about their health.

In addition to your presence on social media, you have actively contributed to the advancement of urology through scientific publications and participation in conferences. How do you balance your role as a practicing physician with that of a researcher and educator?

Balancing my role as a practicing physician, researcher, and educator is a challenge that I address with dedication and organization. I take advantage of opportunities to share my experience and knowledge at conferences and academic events, and I find it rewarding to contribute to the advancement of urology through scientific publications. All of this ultimately benefits my patients and allows me to offer them more effective and up-to-date treatment options.

Your focus on the emotional well-being of your patients and the support you provide to those suffering from urinary problems is truly admirable. How do you manage to combine medical excellence with emotional support in your practice?

Combining both aspects is fundamental in my medical practice. I understand that urinary problems can generate fear and shame in my patients, so my goal is to provide them with a warm and welcoming environment where they feel comfortable sharing their concerns. Empathy and active listening are essential to understanding the emotional needs of my patients, allowing me to offer comprehensive support along with medical excellence in their treatment.

Your dedication and commitment to your patients are truly inspiring. Thank you very much, Dr. Martín, for sharing your story and your work in the field of urology.

I appreciate the opportunity to share my experience. My goal is to continue providing quality medical care and emotional support to my patients and to contribute to the advancement of urology in Colombia.

It has been a real pleasure to talk to you and learn more about your distinguished career. We wish you much success in all your future endeavors.
