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 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.

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.

I had a nice experience at Hospital Quironsalud Torrevieja for my radiotherapy. I completed my breast cancer treatment, and now I am fully recovered. My doctor and the nursing staff at the oncology unit made sure that I was healing properly. They took great care of me, and that is the reason I fully trust their services and expertise.

My brother’s scoliosis surgery was done by Dr. Augusto Covaro. He is an excellent surgeon as he corrected scoliosis to a great extent. He was always available during the recovery time, actively listened to all our queries, and guided us in the best possible way. Choosing Dr. Covaro as a spine surgeon was a wise decision.

I have always been inclined to sports, and last year, I injured my knee and was restricted to my bed. I tried many sports therapists, but my condition was not improving. I was barely moving, and it was affecting my mental health. One of my colleagues suggested consulting Dr. Xavier Mir for my injury. I visited the clinic, and he suggested knee ligament surgery. I had the procedure and recovered quickly. I highly recommend him to everyone.

I dislocated my shoulder after an accident. My friends took me to Quironsalud Dexeus Hospital. The doctors suggested the shoulder arthroplasty procedure. Two days after my accident my surgery was scheduled.  The procedure went well and I am glad that my friends took me to the right place at the right time.

Spinal Cord Tumor: Diagnosis in Spanish Clinics

Diagnosis is an important part of the treatment which involves several steps, including

  • Medical history: During this, the doctor asks about disease symptoms, medical history, and any previous surgeries or treatments you may have had.
  • Imaging tests: MRI, CT scan, or myelogram can help identify the location and size of the tumor.
  • Biopsy: A tumor sample is examined under a microscope to determine the type and whether it is cancerous or not.
  • Neurological exam: To assess the function of the spinal cord, the doctor performs a neurological test
  • Blood tests: These are performed to check for any abnormalities or to rule out other medical conditions.

Once a diagnosis has been made, Spanish doctors focus on the treatment plan and a discussion is made considering the patient’s reports and previous medical history.

Spinal Cord Tumor: Treatment Strategies in Spain

The treatment depends on several factors, such as the type of tumor, its location, size, and whether it has spread to other parts of the body. Some common treatment strategies are:

Radiation therapy

It uses high-energy radiation and can be used before or after surgery to shrink the spinal cord tumor or to kill any remaining cancer cells. It may also be used as the primary treatment for spinal tumors that cannot be removed by surgery due to their location.

Chemotherapy

Oncologists prefer this method to kill spinal cord tumor cells through drugs. It may be used alone or in combination with other treatments.

Laser ablation

A newer technique in oncology that uses a laser to destroy the tumor. Using imaging guidance, a small hole is drilled into the skull to allow access to the spinal cord. A laser fiber is inserted through the hole and advanced to the site.

It is then activated, and the heat generated by the laser destroys the spinal cord tumor tissue. After the tissue is destroyed, the laser fiber is removed, and the incision is closed.

Radiofrequency ablation

The technique uses heat generated by high-frequency radio waves to destroy spinal cord tumors. A small incision is made in the spinal cord, and a thin probe is inserted through the skin and guided to the tumor using imaging guidance, such as CT or MRI.

Once the probe is in position, radio waves are sent through the probe to generate heat that destroys the tumors. The temperature is carefully monitored to ensure that healthy tissue is not damaged. After the RFA is complete, the probe is removed, and the incision is closed with stitches or adhesive strips.

Stereotactic radiosurgery

A non-invasive procedure that uses high doses of radiation. Once the spinal cord tumor is located, a highly focused beam of radiation is delivered to the site from different angles using a machine such as a linear accelerator.

The beam is targeted to deliver the maximum dose while minimizing exposure to the surrounding healthy tissue. The entire treatment usually takes only a few minutes.

Steroids

They can reduce swelling around the spinal cord tumor and relieve symptoms such as pain, weakness, and numbness.

Supportive care

It involves managing symptoms such as pain, nausea, and fatigue. To help improve patients’ quality of life, physical therapy and occupational therapy can also be offered.

Surgeries for Spinal Cord Tumor in Spain

It serves as a primary treatment approach. Surgery aims to remove as much of the tumor as possible while minimizing damage to the spinal cord. Several surgical procedures can be used, including:

Microsurgery

This minimally invasive procedure uses a microscope and specialized instruments. The surgeon uses electrophysiological monitoring to ensure the nerves are not damaged during the spinal cord operation. This involves placing electrodes on the muscles and spinal nerves to measure their activity and ensure that they are functioning properly.

Endoscopic surgery

Another minimally invasive procedure for spinal cord tumor removal that uses an endoscope (a thin, flexible tube with a camera and light) to visualize and remove the tumor.

The surgical staff carefully monitors the endoscope for precise treatment. The length of hospital stay varies between three to seven days in spinal cord tumor surgery depending on the selected surgical approach

Recovery After Spinal Cord Tumor Treatment

  • The recovery process depends on several factors, such as the extent of surgery, the individual's overall health, and the effectiveness of the treatment. Here are some general guidelines for recovery
  • Rest and Rehabilitation: It is important to allow the body to rest and recover after surgery or radiation therapy. Physical therapy may be necessary to help regain strength and mobility in the affected area.
  • Pain Management: An important aspect of recovery, medications are prescribed to manage pain.
  • Lifestyle Changes: Depending on the treatment approach, some changes may be necessary. This can include modifications to physical activity, diet, and medication use.
  • Emotional Support: Recovery can be a challenging process, and emotional support from family, friends, or a support group can help cope with the physical and emotional challenges
  • Monitoring: Follow-up appointments with the doctor are necessary to monitor the healing process and ensure the tumor does not return.
  • Working closely with your doctor to develop a comprehensive recovery plan is important. Recovery from spinal cord tumor treatment may take two to three months, but with proper care and support, you may be able to regain function and lead a fulfilling life.

Reviews about treatment of spinal cord tumor in Spain

Walia Jane, Iran:
  My mother was diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor, and one of her doctors at Quironsalud Hospital Barcelona suggested radiotherapy followed by surgery. Although her recovery phase was long, luckily, the tumor did not recur.

FAQs

What is the survival rate of a spinal cord tumor?

The survival rate depends on several factors, including the type, location, size, and grade of the tumor, as well as the age and overall health of the patient. The five-year survival rate of malignant spinal cord tumors is reported to be 70% (cancer.org)

What are the symptoms of a tumor on the spine?

Pain is the most common symptom of spinal tumors. It may be localized to the site of the tumor or may radiate to other areas of the body. Other symptoms include weakness or paralysis in the arms or legs, numbness or tingling, loss of bowel or bladder control, difficulty walking, changes in sensation and muscle spasms.

Do spinal tumors grow fast?

Metastatic tumors that have spread from other parts of the body to the spine tend to grow faster than primary spinal tumors, originating in the spinal cord or surrounding tissues. Additionally, some types of primary spinal tumors, such as ependymomas and schwannomas, tend to grow more slowly, while others, such as glioblastomas, can grow quickly and aggressively.
