Spain has a strong reputation for delivering high-quality, affordable healthcare, with many of its hospitals and clinics offering high-tech procedures.

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 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.

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.

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.

Dr. Xavier Mir Bullo is an amazing surgeon, and I would recommend him to everyone. I had the best experience undergoing knee cartilage surgery under his supervision. He guided me through the post-operative period, and now I have completely recovered.

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 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.

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.

Benefits of Visiting Spanish Clinics for Brachytherapy

The following are the advantages of getting brachytherapy done in Spain:

Best Brachytherapy Clinics in Spain, such as:

  • Quironsalud Madrid Hospital’s services are acknowledged by El Español.
  • Hospital Quironsalud Torrevieja has gained popularity due to the constant efforts of senior oncologists. Moreover, its oncology department offers advanced non-invasive procedures such as brachytherapy, electrochemotherapy, HIPEC, and IMRT.

Best Brachytherapy Doctors in Spain are:

  • Dr. Josep Tabernero is a member of various international societies, such as the Spanish and European Societies of Medical Oncology, the American Association for the Study of Cancer
  • Dr. Javier Cortes Castan is involved in national and international clinical research on the development of therapies for oncological pathologies. He is a member of the ESMO Scientific Committee and ASCO.

The cost of brachytherapy in Spain can be up to 50% less than in the US.

According to the Spanish Association of Brachytherapy, Spain has more than 50 brachytherapy centers and has treated over 10,000 patients with this procedure annually.

Why is Brachytherapy Done?

Brachytherapy is done to treat a variety of cancers, including prostate cancer, breast cancer, and cervical cancer, by delivering radiation directly to the tumor or cancerous tissue. It is often used in conjunction with other cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy or surgery, to help increase the chances of a successful outcome.

Moreover, this procedure can also be used to relieve symptoms and improve the quality of life for patients with advanced or metastatic cancer.

What Tests are done before Brachytherapy in Spain?

Before undergoing brachytherapy, your healthcare provider will perform a series of tests to determine the best treatment plan for you. These tests may include:

  • Physical exam: Your healthcare provider will perform a physical exam to assess your overall health and to determine the location, size, and stage of your cancer.
  • Imaging tests: Imaging tests such as CT scan, MRI, or ultrasound may be used to help visualize the tumor and surrounding tissue.
  • Biopsy: A biopsy may be performed to confirm the diagnosis of cancer and to determine the type and grade of cancer.
  • Blood tests: Blood tests may be performed to assess your general health and to make sure that you are healthy enough to undergo the brachytherapy procedure.
  • Other tests: Depending on your individual case, other tests may be ordered to help determine the best course of treatment.

It is important to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the testing process with your healthcare provider prior to undergoing brachytherapy.

How to Prepare for Brachytherapy?

Preparing for cancer therapies depends on the type of cancer being treated and the specific treatment plan prescribed by Oncologists. However, here are some general guidelines on how to prepare for brachytherapy:

  • Your doctor will provide you with instructions on which medications you should take or avoid before the procedure. This may include stopping supplements that could increase the risk of bleeding.
  • Depending on the type of therapy you receive, you may be asked to fast for a certain period before the procedure.
  • If you are receiving therapy for prostate cancer, you may be asked to follow specific instructions for bowel and bladder preparation before the procedure.

How is Brachytherapy done in Spain?

Here is a general overview of how brachytherapy is done:

  • During the procedure, a small radioactive source will be placed inside or near the tumor. This can be done using different methods, such as through catheters or needles or by placing small pellets or seeds directly into the tumor.
  • A CT scan or MRI may be used to help guide the placement of the radioactive source and ensure it is properly positioned.
  • Once the radioactive source is in place, it will emit radiation to the surrounding tissue, targeting the cancer cells.
  • Then, the radioactive source will be removed. In some cases, the source may be left in place permanently, but it will eventually become inactive over time.

The entire procedure typically takes several hours

What Happens After Brachytherapy?

After brachytherapy, you will be monitored closely to ensure that the treatment has been effective and that there are no complications. Follow-up visits with the Radioncologist will be scheduled to monitor the patient's progress and to address any ongoing concerns or issues.

The recovery process after brachytherapy depends on several factors, including the type of cancer being treated, the location of the tumor, the type of brachytherapy used, and your overall health.

Generally, to promote recovery, you will be advised to follow these guidelines:

  • Get plenty of rest and avoid strenuous activities
  • Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
  • Eat a healthy, balanced diet that includes plenty of protein and nutrients to help the body heal.
  • Take medications as prescribed, including pain relievers or other medications to manage side effects.
  • Follow any specific care instructions for the site where the brachytherapy was administered, such as keeping the area clean and dry.

Is Brachytherapy Safe?

Brachytherapy is a safe procedure. However, it has some potential complications, including:

  • Urinary problems
  • Bowel problems
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Skin irritation
  • Radiation exposure
  • Infection
  • Cancer recurrence

Reviews about brachytherapy in Spain

Marcus Argent , Italy :
I visited Ruber International Hospital to get brachytherapy done for prostate cancer. It was successfully performed by Dr. Javier Cortes Castan, and I made a quick recovery. 

FAQs

What are the benefits of brachytherapy compared to other cancer treatments?

Brachytherapy has several benefits compared to other cancer treatments, including higher radiation doses to the tumor, minimally invasive targeted treatment, shorter treatment time, and fewer side effects:

Will I lose my hair during brachytherapy treatment?

It depends on the location of the treatment. If the treatment targets a site on the head or neck, there is a possibility of hair loss. However, if the treatment targets a site elsewhere in the body, hair loss is unlikely.

How is brachytherapy different from external beam radiation therapy?

Brachytherapy involves placing radioactive material inside or near the tumor, delivering a high radiation dose to the cancer cells hence allowing the targeted and precise treatment. External beam radiation therapy, on the other hand, delivers radiation from outside the body, targeting the tumor from different angles.
