    The barnaclínic+ Pain Unit is born to provide a solution to patients with any type of pain

    Chronic pain is a complex and debilitating experience that affects millions of people around the world. Unlike acute pain, which is a temporary response of the body to an injury or illness, chronic pain persists for weeks, months or even years, challenging quality of life and creating a significant burden on both individuals and society in general. The new barnaclínic+ Pain Unit aims to explore this multifaceted condition in depth, addressing its causes, clinical manifestations, biopsychosocial impact and management strategies. By better understanding the complex nature of pain, healthcare professionals will be better equipped to provide comprehensive, personalised care to those who suffer from it.

    Primer hospital en llegar a los 200 cirugías de trasplante renal robótico

    In June 2015, the first robotic kidney transplant was carried out in Spain.

Now, less than eight years later, the Clínic achieves a new milestone by being the first Spanish hospital to perform 200 of these robotic transplants. A new step forward in a long path that began much earlier, in 1965, when Dr Gil-Vernet performed the first kidney transplant in Spain, also at the Clínic hospital.

    New minimally invasive surgery to remove benign ear tumours, now also at barnaclínic+

    Advances in medicine are allowing for increasingly more precise and less invasive interventions. In this sense, the use of endoscopy stands out, which takes advantage of the natural openings of the body or small incisions both to examine the interior of the organs and to perform different procedures. The hospital Clínic Barcelona has been the first centre in Spain to use this approach to remove glomus tumours, a type of benign tumour of the middle ear that grows in the temporal bone of the skull, behind the eardrum. From now on, this minimally invasive surgical technique to remove ear tumours is also available at barnaclínic+.
