    barnaclínc+ launches its Medical Check-up unit

    Revisiones Médicas

    An early diagnosis is usually always synonymous with a better prognosis. Both because the pathology has not developed enough to cause irreparable damage and because in earlier stages it is possible to use less aggressive treatments that lead to a better and faster recovery.

    Prótesis de pene

    Erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse.
