      Recently, the academic paper “Suprapubic-assisted Laparoendoscopic Single-site Surgery (LESS) in Urology: Our Experience” jointly written by Professor Zhou Xiaofeng, Doctor Zhang Guoxi and Xue Yijun was published by the world-renowned academic journal “BJU Int” (doi: 10.1111/bju.12158) collected by SCI and this academic paper was also published by the database Pubmed ( 23795803). Zhou Xiaofeng, a renowned urology expert in China, is the urology pacesetter and the vice-President in the First Affiliated Hospital of Gannan Medical University (FAHGMU).
     The urology team led by Professor Zhou Xiaofeng carried out LESS in 2010 and independently designed SA-LESS. This academic paper reported that SA-LESS was employed to cure 236 patients concerning urology diseases, which proved to be safe, feasible and clinically valuable. This new technology effectively circumvented the interaction between laproscope and operating apparatus, which brought down the difficulty and risk of this operation. Making full use of the masking effect of pubes and navel ruga, this new technology enjoyed fine cosmetic results.
      BJU Int, a prestigious international urology academic journal, was hosted by the Association of UK Urology with 3.046 impact factor. The publication of “Suprapubic-assisted Laparoendoscopic Single-site Surgery (LESS) in Urology: Our Experience” marked SA-LESS won international recognition, proved the innovative capacities of the urology department of FAHGMU, and promoted the academic influence of GMU in the international urology circle.
