Best Glioblastoma Clinics in Spain

According to WHO statistics, Spain is in the top 3 countries with the lowest mortality rate. Since 2018, this country has been ranked 4th in the world in terms of medical care. Spanish clinics successfully treat brain cancers, including glioblastoma. To remove the tumor, Spanish doctors use modern robotic units with neuronavigation - Renishaw Neuromate. Thanks to this system, the doctor can accurately determine the location of neoplasia and excise it qualitatively without affecting the vital structures of the brain.

Cost of glioblastoma treatment in Spain

The price of brain tumor treatment in Spain can vary dramatically. This parameter largely depends on the level of the medical center, the services of the leading oncologist. You can always find out the exact cost of services from the coordinators of the Clinics On Call service

Procedure Price
Gamma Knife from $8 000
Craniotomy from $19 000
CT from $800
PET-CT $1,500-$2,200

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 recently underwent treatment for a spinal cyst, and I must say that the care I received at Quironsalud Hospital Madrid was exceptional. 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 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. I am experiencing less pain and discomfort, and I am able to enjoy many activities that I had previously given up on. I am truly grateful to the team at this clinic for their expertise and dedication to helping patients like me.

I was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) after my premature birth. Initially, my parents were very worried about my health and future development, but with the help of my doctors and therapists at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia, I have been able to make progress and reach important milestones. Living with PVL has its challenges, including motor difficulties, speech delays, and learning disabilities. However, I have received great support from my family, caregivers, and medical team, who have worked tirelessly to provide me with the best possible care and interventions. Although PVL is a lifelong condition, I am determined to keep pushing myself and achieving my goals. I am grateful for the love and care I have received, and I am optimistic about my future. My team at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia is very supportive.

I was diagnosed with an AVM a few months ago, and it was quite scary to learn about this condition. However, I am very grateful to have been able to receive proper treatment and care from my doctors at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia. Initially, I did not know much about AVMs and was concerned about what the diagnosis would mean for my health. My doctors did a great job explaining the condition to me and the treatment options available. They recommended that I undergo embolization followed by surgery to remove the AVM. The procedure itself was not too difficult, and I was able to return home the next day. The recovery process was a bit more challenging, but my medical team gave me great support and care. They made sure that I was comfortable and provided me with all the necessary information. Now that I have fully recovered, I feel grateful for the care I received and the successful treatment. I feel much better and am able to resume my daily activities without any problems.

As a patient diagnosed with an aneurysm of the cerebral artery, I wanted to share my experience to help others who may be going through the same thing. Firstly, the diagnosis itself was a shock. I had been experiencing some mild headaches, but I never expected to be told that I had a bulge in the blood vessel in my brain. The medical team at Quironsalud Valencia was very reassuring, and they explained the condition to me in detail, which helped me understand what was happening. The treatment process was also smooth. I was offered two options: surgery or endovascular coiling. After careful consideration, I chose endovascular coiling. The procedure was performed under local anesthesia, and I could go home the next day. I experienced some headaches and fatigue for a few days, but overall, it was smooth. I had to take some time off work to rest, but after a week or so, I could resume my normal activities.

I recently underwent a discectomy to reconstruct my intervertebral cartilage, and I could not be happier with the results. Prior to the surgery, I was experiencing chronic back pain and limited mobility. My doctor at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia recommended this procedure to address the root cause of my discomfort. The surgery itself was relatively straightforward, and my recovery time was minimal. Within a few weeks, I noticed a significant improvement. I no longer experience the constant pain I had grown accustomed to, and I can move around more freely. The reconstruction surgery has truly been life-changing for me. I can now enjoy activities I had previously given up on due to my back pain. I would highly recommend this procedure to anyone who is experiencing similar issues.

As a patient recently diagnosed with Malignant Schwannoma, I would like to share my experience with others facing the same diagnosis. I am a 45-year-old woman who noticed a lump in my leg a few months ago. Initially, I thought it was just a benign cyst, but after consulting with my doctor at Quironsalud Hospital Valencia and undergoing a series of tests, I was diagnosed with Malignant Schwannoma. Although the diagnosis was initially difficult to accept, I felt grateful that my doctor caught it early and we could start treatment immediately. I underwent surgery to remove the tumor, followed by radiation therapy. The treatment was challenging, but I had an excellent medical team who supported me throughout the process.

Benefits of Glioblastoma Treatment in Spain

  • Availability of modern diagnostic and operating equipment.
  • Highly qualified doctors who work in close cooperation with colleagues from the USA.
  • The use of minimally invasive surgical techniques for the removal of glioblastoma.
  • The rehabilitation period after such an intervention is much easier and faster for the patient.

Diagnosis of glioblastoma in Spain

Glioblastoma of the brain involves complex treatment, as cancer cells begin to metastasize rapidly. To determine the type of tumor and its prevalence, in Spain they prescribe:

  • An extensive blood test (including a test for tumor markers).
  • Modern imaging techniques such as PET-CT/MRI/CT. Powerful devices help not only to identify the location of the neoplasia but also to determine how deeply the neoplasm has penetrated into the brain tissue. Visualizers help doctors develop the most adaptive treatment regimen and choose the appropriate method of surgical intervention.
  • Biopsy. An informative analysis that allows you to accurately determine the type of tumor cells and the degree of their aggressiveness.

In Spain, the examination can take from 3 to 6 days.

Treatment of glioblastoma in Spain

  • Therapy for glioblastoma largely depends on the stage of development of the disease. Given that this form of cancer is the most aggressive, Spanish specialists are developing an effective treatment regimen.
  • It may include an operation to remove a neoplasm, chemotherapy and radiation therapy, targeted treatment and, if indicated, radiosurgery with the latest Cyber-Knife, and Gamma-Knife installations.
  • The Teknon Medical Center uses a Novalis linear accelerator, as well as an improved LINAC model.

Surgery for glioblastoma

In Spanish oncology centers, minimally invasive techniques are mainly used to remove a brain tumor. Considering that cancer cells in glioblastoma have the ability to grow rapidly, surgery is always accompanied by radiotherapy and chemotherapy to completely destroy the cancer process. Neurosurgeons use intraoperative MRI. After excision of the neoplasia, the patient is transferred to the MRI unit.

If the machine detects remnants of cancer cells, the surgeon can remove the remaining diseased areas without interrupting surgery. Also, to remove the tumor in Spain, a modern type of craniotomy is performed - awake craniotomy. The essence of this operation is that the patient is conscious, which allows neurosurgeons to accurately manipulate and monitor the safety of the patient's cognitive functions.

Chemotherapy

Drug treatment with chemotherapy drugs is an integral part of glioblastoma. Spanish chemotherapists individually develop a treatment regimen, taking into account the characteristics of the body of each patient. Chemotherapy can be prescribed both before surgery (to stop the growth of cancer cells and reduce neoplasia), and after surgery (to completely destroy the cancerous process).

Treating glioblastoma with chemotherapy requires considerable expertise because tumors often consist of several different cell types. Some drugs can kill some of these cells, allowing others to grow unchecked. Medical oncologists in Spain professionally and carefully develop a treatment plan for patients with glioblastomas.

Radiation therapy (RT)

During radiation therapy for glioblastoma, x-rays, gamma rays, or photons are directed at the tumor to destroy the cancer cells. Clinics in Spain use the latest generation linear accelerators, such as:

  • IMRT;
  • IGRT;
  • Truebeam;
  • Novalis.

Also, powerful Cyber-Knife and Gamma-Knife devices are used for tumor treatment. Modern devices allow you to locally affect the tumor zone, while minimally affecting healthy tissues.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

Radiosurgery is relevant for neoplasia with a diameter of 2-4 cm. Despite the name, stereotactic radiosurgery is not a type of operation. This is a non-contact treatment in which the radioactive source is placed closer to the tumor than is possible with conventional RT. While conventional radiotherapy for glioblastoma involves many sessions scheduled over several months, stereotactic radiosurgery is performed in fewer sessions.

Biological (targeted) therapy

Oncology centers in Spain actively use innovative biological preparations, which, unlike chemotherapy, locally affect cancer cells without damaging healthy structures of the body. To undergo a course of targeted therapy, Spanish doctors prescribe tests for the sensitivity of pathogenic cells to the active substances of medicines.

Reviews about treatment of glioblastoma in Spain

Marcelo Alves, Brazil:
I was so disturbed and stressed after my diagnosis of glioblastoma. I was unable to decide the doctor for myself and one of my cousins suggested me Dr. Jamie Gallego. I did a lot of research about him and went to Spain for my treatment. He is an amazing personality and a very skilled neurologist. The way he handled my case and supported me psychologically I would definitely recommend him.
