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.

Visual health is the key to people’s quality of life. In order to detect possible visual problems in the earliest stages and find the most appropriate treatment for each person, it’s vital to offer the most personalised care possible. Precisely, to focus on the patients, the team of world-renowned ophthalmological professionals at Hospital Clínic Group, led by Dr. Alfredo Adán, was set up by visiõnclínic+. A unique project that features the most advanced technological equipment and modern facilities distributed among the Maternity headquarters and a few new surgeries located in Vía Augusta on the Mi Tres Torres Campus.

It’s state-of-the-art training in surgery and it’s the first practical-training project in ophthalmology in a public center in Europe.

Refractive laser surgery is one of the best known and most commonly performed options for correcting vision problems and can be an alternative to wearing glasses or contact lenses. Now, the barnaclínic+ Ophthalmology service that carries out this type of surgery, has incorporated into its facilities a new system that utilises two types of laser: the femtosecond laser to make a precise cut in the form of a window in the cornea (the transparent dome-shaped part at the front of the eye) and the excimer laser to modify its curvature.
Thanks to the new equipment it will be possible to carry out two surgical procedures. On is the technique known as FEMTO-LASIK (laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis) and the other is PRK (photorefractive keratectomy). “Thanks to these techniques we will be able to correct both myopia and hyperopia or astigmatism. They are all about pathologies in which there is a malformation in the length of the eyeball or in the shape of the curve that can be corrected with the laser”, explains Dr Jorge Peraza, an expert ophthalmologist in refractive surgery of barnaclínic+.

The barnaclínic+ ophthalmology department offers a new service for those contact lens wearers who, owing to their condition (keratoconus, cornea transplant, severe dry eye syndrome), cannot wear conventional contact lenses. Scleral contact lenses or scleral lenses, now available at barnaclínic+, are the best option for these patients.
