I was struggling with chest pain and shortness of breath, and I knew something was wrong. After consulting with my doctor, I was diagnosed with cardiac ischemia and referred to Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor in Spain for treatment. From the moment I arrived, I felt confident in the care I was receiving. The doctors and nurses were knowledgeable, attentive, and compassionate, and made sure that I understood every aspect of my treatment plan. The angioplasty and stenting procedure went smoothly, and I was able to return home feeling much better. I can't thank the team at Hospital Universitari Sagrat Cor enough for the excellent care they provided, and would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of cardiac care.

I was diagnosed with paraganglioma a few months ago, and I was initially very worried about my treatment options. However, after doing some research, I decided to travel to Spain for my treatment at Sagrat Cor University Hospital, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. The hospital staff was incredibly friendly and professional, and they made me feel at ease during every step of the treatment process. My multidisciplinary team of specialists worked together to develop a personalized treatment plan that included surgery and radiation therapy. The surgery was performed with great care and precision, and the radiation therapy was delivered with the latest technology to ensure the best possible outcome. The hospital facilities were state-of-the-art, and the recovery process was comfortable and hassle-free.

My 4-year-old son was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. We were immediately told that the operation would be difficult and that there might be a risk of complications (the child would be lagging behind in development). Of course, it was a real blow for us. We started exploring the Internet. Everywhere people recommended being treated abroad, in particular in clinics in Spain. It was not difficult to prepare the travel documents. Clinic on Call staff helped us a lot. We were met at the airport, brought to the clinic, and helped to check into the hotel. After the diagnosis, we underwent treatment. The operation was difficult, but everything went well. Now at home. My child is completely healthy. I am very grateful to the doctors at Hospital Sagrat Cor.

Breast Augmentation
With intense sports and diet, my breasts lost their form. It was impossible to return to their former state. I came across a few procedures of Dr. Javier Foncillas from social media. At the end of the face-to-face meeting, I did not search for any research or alternatives. I surrendered with infinite confidence. The result is amazing, I am glad I came across him. I have full, natural, wonderful breasts. My advice to those who are considering breast augmentation, to not waste any time.

He is a doctor with a lot of knowledge and experience. I underwent surgery for the first time in my life after I fell down the stairs. He gave me detailed information about the procedure. I have never seen such a humane, devoted, and knowledgeable doctor.

Knee Arthroplasty
My mother had a minor accident but she eventually got her knee injured. We went to Dr. Sergio Loscos for my mother's knee joint replacement surgery with the advice of my friends. In the 30-minute interview we had, we realized that he was the right Dr to operate on my mother, and we took the day for the surgery.  Before and after the surgery, our Dr. exhibited extremely humane behavior, knowledgeable about the subject, knowing his job, and answering the questions we asked confidently and tirelessly. I trusted him so much that I didn't even wait in front of the classical operating room. My mother's knee is getting better every day and she can walk on her own without help.
