The University Clinic of Navarra was established in 1962. It is located in Pamplona, in the north of Spain.
According to the hospital's data, Navarra is a leading center for sarcoma treatment in Spain. Doctors have treated 1,500 patients with sarcoma (including children) for the last 30 years.
The treatment success is:
90 out of 100 patients preserve an affected extremity after surgical treatment of osteosarcoma. Nowadays, this is the best index in Europe.
Surgical Canadell technique was developed at Navarra. This option allows preserving the limb in case of pediatric sarcoma treatment. Today, Canadell is used in Chinese, Swiss, German, and Turkish hospitals.
Navarra doctors are the 1st in Spain who have started applying cells vaccines against aggressive tumors such as glioblastoma. This vaccine is produced on the base of own patients' cells. According to MedicalXpress, a new drug improves the survival index for patients with glioblastoma.
During the brain tumor surgery, doctors use fluorescent microscopy technique. Surgeons insert a special safe substance which highlights malignant cells, and a doctor clearly distinguishes them from healthy tissues.
Due to this method, a surgeon removes a brain tumor entirely in 83% of cases compared to 30% without this technique.
When breast cancer is suspected, the diagnostics takes 1 day, on average. If the diagnosis is confirmed, doctors establish a treatment plan within a week.
Navarra surgeons plan the breast tumor removal in details to preserve healthy breast tissues as much as possible, and if necessary — to make a reconstruction of an organ.
The primary treatment option for thyroid cancer is surgical intervention.
The operation is minimally-invasive — it is performed through the incision in the armpit or behind the ear to avoid visible scarring. Doctors also conduct surgery using Da Vinci robotic system.
After surgery, doctors additionally prescribe hormone-, chemo- or radiotherapies.
Radioiodine therapy is assigned in case of differentiated carcinoma of the thyroid gland. This type of tumor is the most sensitive to radioactive iodine.
Doctors of the Department specialize in the treatment of leukemia, multiple myeloma. The primary option for blood cancer treatment is chemotherapy.
Important to know: the Department accepts only children older than 3.5 years.
For medical reasons, doctors conduct bone marrow transplant (BMT) which allows restoring hematogenic function.
2 types of BMT are performed at Navarra:
Hospital Navarra applies the newest vaccines to destroy blood cancer cells and suppress their growth. Among them are derivatives from retinoid acid; they show a high success rate in combination with chemotherapy.
Navarra doctors specialize in liver and kidney transplant. They conduct transplantation from a donor of the 1st or 2nd-degree relatives (parents, children, brothers, sisters).
Navarra University Hospital is 1 among 5 facilities in the world, where liver transplant is performed laparoscopically (through small incisions in the abdomen). It allows reducing a recovery period and avoiding complications related to blood loss or infections.
According to the hospital's data, Navarra is the only medical center in Spain where intraoperative MRI scanning is used. It allows achieving the maximal accuracy in craniocerebral surgery.
Doctors apply minimally-invasive methods and neuronavigation system in brain and spine surgeries, removal of tumors and epilepsy treatment. Operating through small incisions allows to avoid complications and severe blood loss, and thanks to neuronavigation — doctors control their movements and do not damage healthy tissues.
Navarra doctors have over 15 years of experience in managing the procedure. It improves the health condition of patients with Parkinson's disease, dystonia and different types of tremors.
Operation in the Neurosurgery Department, Navarra Hospital
Among the achievements of the Department are:
In 95% of cases, doctors use only the thoracic artery for heart bypass surgery. It allows avoiding extra incisions on the leg, where the vessel is usually taken. Such an option is an advantage for patients with diabetes and weak vessels.
During the heart surgery, doctors use the HeartPort technique. Due to this technique, a doctor receives access to the heart through the side incisions instead of the sternotomy (the opening of the thorax). This option shortens the recovery period, reduces infections and complications related to blood loss.
Navarra doctors have over 25 years of experience. They have installed 1,400 cochlear implants for children and adults.
According to the Department's statistics, 90% of children in the age of several months to 3 years start hearing 90% of sounds after cochlear implantation.
