My daughter was twelve months old when we noticed unusual symptoms and body movements in her. We had no family history of autism, but I had sufficient knowledge about this condition. We took her to a doctor at Teknon Medical Center and discussed her symptoms. The doctor started ABA therapy for her, and it worked well. Now she is three years old, and 70% of her symptoms have been reduced. Thanks to her amazing doctor.

I got my tumor removed at Quironsalud Teknon Medical Center. Although it was a benign tumor, I was extremely worried, but the doctors at Teknon Medical Center made everything easy. I had to undergo two sessions of radiation therapy, but I am glad to announce that the tumor is gone. I am extremely grateful to ClinicsonCall for connecting me to Teknon Medical Center.

I recently had a PET MRI Scan at Teknon Medical Center, and I must say that the experience was surprisingly comfortable. From the moment I walked in, the staff made sure I felt at ease, taking the time to explain the procedure and address any concerns. The technicians were incredibly patient and understanding, making sure I was comfortable before starting the scan. The facility itself was clean and well-maintained, contributing to an overall positive experience. I appreciate the care I received at Teknon Medical Center during my scan.

My son was born with scoliosis, and his hunched back deprived him of many activities that a normal kid would do. We started searching for the treatment, but it was unavailable in our country. We decided to search abroad and found out about clinics on call through a friend. We were set up with their coordinator, who suggested we consult Dr. Bartolme Oliver. We did a thorough research on the Internet and decided to visit him. Fortunately, the doctor said it was possible to correct the scoliosis for which he did the surgery. We stayed in Spain for six months, which was worth it. Dr. Oliver was very supportive and helpful throughout our journey.

I have been suffering from Arachnoiditis for years and have tried various treatments with little to no relief. However, I am happy to report that my Arachnoiditis treatment was life-changing. The staff at Quironsalud Barcelona were incredibly knowledgeable and compassionate. The treatment involved a combination of medication and therapy, and I was impressed by the level of personalization that went into creating my individualized treatment plan. Throughout the process, I felt I was in good hands and that my care was a top priority. After completing the treatment, I can confidently say that my symptoms have improved significantly.

My symptoms were quite debilitating and had been affecting my quality of life for some time, but the doctors and staff at the hospital were incredibly compassionate and attentive to my needs. The diagnostic process was thorough and efficient, and my doctor explained everything to me so that I knew exactly what was happening. The treatment plan was tailored to my situation, and the surgical procedure went smoothly without complications. After the surgery, I received excellent follow-up care, with regular check-ins to monitor my progress and ensure I was recovering well. I am feeling much better now and can enjoy my daily activities without pain or discomfort. I am satisfied with the care I received and would highly recommend this hospital to anyone in need of similar treatment.

I recently experienced an Intracranial Hematoma, which was a scary and challenging situation to deal with. It started with a sudden and severe headache, followed by nausea and vomiting, and then I started feeling confused and disoriented. I was rushed to the Quironsalud Hospital Madrid, where I underwent a CT scan that showed bleeding in my brain. The doctors quickly diagnosed me with an Intracranial Hematoma and took me into surgery to remove the clot. The procedure was successful, and I am grateful to the skilled medical team that saved my life. The recovery process was not easy, as I had to spend some time in the ICU and then in a rehabilitation center to regain my strength and mobility. I also had to take medication to prevent seizures and manage my pain. Now, several months after the incident, I am still dealing with some residual symptoms, such as headaches and memory problems. However, I am slowly but surely regaining my independence and returning to my normal activities.

I recently underwent MRI-Guided Stereotactic Laser Ablation for a brain tumor at Quironsalud Madrid, and I have to say that the procedure was nothing short of amazing. The team of doctors who performed the procedure were incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and they explained everything to me in detail so that I knew what to expect. They also ensured that I was comfortable throughout the process and that all my questions were answered. The procedure was quick and painless, and I could go home the same day. I had some mild discomfort and headache for a few days afterwards, but it was nothing that could not be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. I am incredibly grateful for the care and attention that I received.

I was diagnosed with Burkitt's lymphoma and felt overwhelmed with the treatment options. But when I came across the HM Madrid Hospital in Spain, I felt hopeful. The medical staff, led by Dr. Blanca Lopez Ibor, were highly professional and empathetic, explaining each step of the treatment plan in detail. The clinic has a state-of-the-art facility with the latest medical equipment and technology, and the nursing staff provided exceptional care during my stay. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone seeking treatment for Burkitt's lymphoma.

I had my shoulder ligament ruptured while playing tennis. I was in extreme pain, which I thought would heal, but it didn’t. The next morning, I quickly searched for the nearest clinic to my hotel and went for the checkup. I am truly amazed at how healthcare works in Spain. I went to Vithas Madrid Clinic, and the hospital service was top-notch. Upon examination, my doctor told me my ligament was ruptured and would take about a week to heal. He started my medications along with physiotherapy, which immensely brought relief to my pain.

My knees were killing me, and my family doctor suggested a total knee replacement. I was referred to Quironsalud Torrevieja Hospital. The hospital's services were brilliant. They spoke wonderful English and went over everything. The surgery was excellent, and I was able to recover without any problems. I also had physical therapy after the procedure. It was painful, but it made a significant impact! I am now free of pain. Thanks to Quironsalud Hospital.

How to Prepare for Implantation of Vagus Nerve Neurostimulator?

Preparing for Vagus Nerve Neurostimulator (VNS) implantation for epilepsy treatment involves several steps, including;

You should consult with a doctor who specializes in epilepsy treatment to discuss the potential benefits and risks of VNS implantation. They will evaluate your medical history and perform a physical exam, as well as any necessary diagnostic tests, such as an EEG, MRI, or CT scan.

Inform your doctor of all medications you are taking, and some medications may be adjusted before the procedure. You may be required to fast for a certain period before the procedure.

Implantation of Vagus Nerve Neurostimulator: How Do Spanish Doctors Perform it?

VNS in Spain is typically performed by a team of healthcare professionals, including a neurosurgeon and an epileptologist, in a hospital or clinical setting. The procedure is generally performed as follows:

  • Anesthesia: You will be placed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation, depending on the individual case and preference.
  • Incision: The neurosurgeon will make a small incision in the upper left chest area, through which the VNS device will be implanted.
  • Electrodes placement and Connection: Your doctor will then place the electrodes around the vagus nerve, which is located in the neck area. The electrodes will then be connected to the VNS device, which will be implanted under the skin in the chest area.
  • Programming: Once the device is implanted, the epileptologist will program the device to deliver electrical impulses to the vagus nerve at regular intervals, which will help reduce the frequency and severity of seizures.
  • Closure: The Neurosurgeon will then close the incision site with stitches and surgical tape.

The entire procedure typically takes 1-2 hours to complete, and most patients can go home the same day or the day after the procedure. Patients will receive specific instructions on how to care for the incision site and how to use the device after the procedure.

Recovery After Implantation of Vagus Nerve Neurostimulator

Recovery after implantation of VNS typically involves several stages, including;

Immediate Post-Operative Care:

  • You may need to stay in the hospital for a few hours to a few days after the procedure, depending on the individual case.
  • Your doctor may prescribe pain medication or recommend over-the-counter pain relief to manage any discomfort or pain at the incision site.
  • You will need to keep the incision site clean and dry and follow specific instructions on how to care for the incision site.
  • The device will typically be activated a few weeks after the procedure, and you will be provided with specific instructions on how to use the device and manage any side effects.

Short-Term Recovery:

  • You should take it easy and rest for the first few days or weeks after the procedure, avoiding strenuous physical activity.
  • You will need to attend follow-up appointments with the doctor to monitor recovery and adjust the device settings as needed.
  • You must continue to take any prescribed anti-epileptic medication as instructed by your healthcare provider.

Long-Term Management:

  • You will need to attend regular check-ups with your healthcare provider to monitor the efficacy of the VNS device and adjust the settings as needed.
  • You may need to replace the VNS battery every few years and should avoid exposing the device to strong magnetic fields.
  • You need to make certain lifestyle adjustments, such as avoiding swimming or contact sports and informing your healthcare provider of any changes in your health status or medication regimen.

Implantation of Vagus Nerve Neurostimulator: Is the Procedure Safe?

VNS is generally considered a safe and effective treatment option for epilepsy. 50 percent of patients with the implantation of VNS will have about 50% fewer seizures than normal, but the chances of being seizure-free are less than 10% (Pubmed NCBI). Like any medical procedure, it does carry some risks, but they are generally low. The risks associated with VNS implantation include;

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Vocal cord paralysis
  • Device malfunction
  • Allergic reaction

Reviews about implantation of vagus nerve neurostimulator in epilepsy in Spain

Deigo

The patient review has been verified Patients Reviews Policy

, South Africa:
“I treated cataracts at the Ichilov clinic. I was shown an operation that involved removing the damaged lens of the eye and installing an artificial one. The whole operation lasted no longer than 30 minutes. Honestly, I expected it to be uncomfortable and difficult, but everything went as easily as possible. I stayed in the hospital until the evening, and then returned to the hotel. Once again I came to an appointment with an ophthalmologist for a consultation and a vision test. I can see much better now than before the operation. Thank you!

FAQs

How long does a VNS implant last?

The lifespan of a VNS implant can vary depending on the manufacturer and model, but most devices are designed to last between 8-10 years. Some factors that may affect the device's lifespan include the frequency of use, the level of stimulation required, and the individual patient's anatomy. Patients may need to have their VNS implant replaced sooner if the battery runs out or if the device stops working. However, routine check-ups with your doctor can help ensure the device is functioning properly and prolong its lifespan.

How effective is a vagus nerve stimulator?

Vagus nerve stimulators (VNS) have been shown to be effective in reducing the frequency and severity of seizures in patients with epilepsy. In general, VNS efficacy becomes optimal around the sixth month of treatment, and a 50–100 % seizure frequency reduction is achieved in approximately 45–65 % of the patients( Science Direct). The full effects of VNS therapy may take several months to become apparent, and not all patients will respond to the treatment. However, for those who respond, VNS therapy can be an effective treatment option for managing seizures and improving their quality of life. In addition to epilepsy, VNS therapy is also being investigated for its potential to treat other neurological and psychiatric conditions, such as depression and chronic pain.

Can a neurostimulator be removed?

Yes, a neurostimulator can be removed if necessary. The removal procedure is generally straightforward and involves making a small incision to access the device and disconnecting it from the wires that connect it to the nerve. The incision is then closed with stitches or surgical glue, and the patient may need to stay in the hospital for a short observation period. However, it's important to note that removing a neurostimulator should only be made after careful consideration and consultation with your doctor, as the device may be providing significant benefits for your condition. Additionally, the removal procedure may carry certain risks, such as infection or nerve damage, so it's important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of the procedure with your doctor.
