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.

Between the 20th and 22nd of March, a representation of barnaclinic+, formed by Carles Loran, our manager, Dr Pere Feliu, from iberoamedical and one of our collaborators, and Dr Jordi Rumià, a neurosurgeon who is part of the Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders Unit (UPTM) of the Clínic de Barcelona and barnaclínic+, visited the Dominican Republic. This visit has been promoted by Maximo Corporana Parkinson’s patient who was operated on by Dr Rumià himself and who, thanks to his intervention, has significantly improved all his symptoms. The aim of this mission focused on Santo Domingo was none other than to present the different services offered by barnaclinic+ for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, to sign a collaboration agreement with the Hospital General de la Plaza de la Salud (HGPS) and to discuss possible cooperation agreements with different entities in the country.

The Clinic is a pioneer in Spain in the extraction of tumours from the base of the skull through the eye
In recent years, surgery has developed enormously to achieve increasingly less invasive interventions. Achieving the same results as traditional open surgeries, these new approaches achieve a faster recovery for patients and minimize the risks of operations, which is why their use is becoming more and more widespread. Now, the Hospital Clínic Group has begun to perform surgeries through the eye to remove tumours from the base of the skull, becoming the first centre in Spain to perform transorbital neuroendoscopic surgery and one of the few in the rest of the world to use it.

Greater precision in surgery and reduced risks and complications during interventions result in better outcomes for patients. This is what robotic surgery provides, one of the great advances that technological developments in medicine have made possible in recent years. One of the centres that has made the most significant commitment to this type of surgery is the Hospital Clínic Group and barnaclínic+.

The Hospital Clínic Group has recently acquired new interstitial laser equipment for its Epilepsy Unit. This minimally invasive technology can be used, among other things, to treat those types of epilepsy that do not respond to conventional pharmacological treatments and which account for 30% of all patients with epilepsy.

Thanks to a donation from barnaclínic+, the Hospital Clínic Group has become the first centre in Catalonia and one of the first in Spain to benefit from a new state-of-the-art robotic visualisation platform. This new surgical microscope incorporates a range of functionalities that facilitate intelligent positioning by the surgeon, reduce manual movements and allow better visualisation of the area of the brain being operated on. What is more, with this technology come shorter recovery times and better prognoses for neurosurgery patients.

The Hospital Clínic Group has a new integrated operating theatre for neurosurgery that offers the latest and best technology in intraoperative imaging. This new surgical equipment will allow complex interventions to be carried out with minimally invasive techniques. Read more…
