    In June 2015, the first robotic kidney transplant was carried out in Spain. That first intervention was carried out at the Clínic hospital in Barcelona and Dr Antonio Alcaraz, head of the Urology and Kidney Transplant service at the Clínic and barnaclínic+ professional, was the one who led the intervention. 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.

In all the time that has elapsed since then, 5,000 transplant operations have been carried out in the centre, of which 1,000 have been from a living donor, being the first centre in our country to achieve this figure. Some numbers that undoubtedly serve to highlight the transcendental role that the centre plays in our country with regard to kidney transplants.
