I recently had the pleasure of undergoing treatment for carotid stenosis at Hospital Universitari General de Catalunya in Spain, and I couldn't be happier with the care I received. From the moment I arrived, I was impressed by the professionalism and expertise of the staff. They made me feel comfortable and confident that I was in good hands. The diagnostic process was thorough, and I was impressed with the advanced technology used to diagnose and monitor my condition. Once my treatment plan was established, the medical team took the time to explain everything to me in detail and answer any questions I had. The surgical procedure was a success, and the recovery process was smooth and easy, thanks to the attentive care of the nursing staff. I was also impressed with the beautiful location of the clinic, which made the entire experience even more pleasant.

After doing some research, I chose Hospital Universitari General de Catalunya because of their reputation for excellence in neurosurgery. The doctors and staff were kind, knowledgeable, and skilled. Thanks to their expertise and support, I am now in remission and feeling better than ever. I would highly recommend seeking treatment for astrocytoma in Spain.

I recently had the pleasure of receiving cholesteatoma treatment at Hospital Universitari General de Catalunya and I cannot express enough how impressed I was with the level of care I received. From my first consultation with the specialist, I felt confident that I was in good hands. The doctor took the time to thoroughly explain my condition and the treatment options available, as well as answer all of my questions. I am happy to say that my cholesteatoma has been successfully treated and my hearing has improved significantly as a result. I would highly recommend Hospital Universitari General de Catalunya to anyone in need of ear, nose, and throat care. The staff and facilities are top-notch and I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Coronary Artery Stenting
I had a family history of cardiovascular diseases, and last year I succumbed to the same problem. My father has had angina for the past four years. Last year I had an angina attack, and after that, I survived on the medicines, but there was no guarantee about my health. I was very worried as I was experiencing shortness of breath quite often. So a friend told me about Dr. Ander at Catalunya hospital, and I went there for my consultation. I informed the doctor about my family history, and he informed me that it could be prevented if I had adopted a healthy lifestyle. However, he performed some diagnostic tests and recommended coronary artery stenting. He guided me about the procedure and informed me how it was going to work. After a thorough consultation, I agreed to the procedure, and it proved a wise decision. The doctor performed the procedure after two days, and it only took 90 minutes.  I was kept under observation for a week. Before discharge, the doctor performed another round of diagnostic tests. He suggested that I take complete bed rest for three weeks. The healing was quick, and I was able to continue my routine activities after three weeks. I went for my follow-up, and the doctor informed me that everything was well. Now I do not face any breathing problems, and it all happened due to Dr. Ander's assistance

Lumpectomy
My mother felt really sick last year as she was complaining about pain near her breast. I took her to General de Catalunya because my friend suggested that I go there. He also had surgery from there. We went for a checkup but upon diagnosis, the doctor shocked us with the news of breast cancer. However, he informed that tumors are not growing rapidly and it’s in the initial stages so lumpectomy is a good option. We decided to have surgery and after a week of intensive care, she recovered.
