In 2021, the Clínic de Barcelona incorporated laser ablation in the treatment of some patients with brain tumours or epilepsy. This technique is now available at barnaclinic+, thus increasing the portfolio of services the centre offers and facilitating patient access to this technology. “Laser ablation is a minimally invasive technique with very good results that reduces the risk of complications and allows an earlier recovery than conventional surgery” explains Dr Joaquim Enseñat, head of the Neurosurgery Department at Hospital Clínica de Barcelona and barnaclinic+ professional.
