The patient was treated of epilepsy

I liked the doctor, it is clear that he is a professional in his field, the staff is friendly, benevolent. The ward is ordinary, bright, the presence of a toilet and a shower. The downside is that the window does not open in the ward, since I stayed with the child in the ward for 5 days and it was impossible for the child to leave the ward, there was not enough air. Didn't like the food. Доктор понравился, видно, что профессионал своего дела, персонал приветливый, доброжелательный. Палата обычная, светлая, наличие туалета и душа.Минус в том, что в палате не открывается окно, так как я пребывала с ребёнком в палате 5 дней и нельзя было покидать палату ребёнку, не хватало воздуха. Не понравилось питание.

The patient was treated in this clinic

We were examined in one of the clinics of this network - the Dexeus hospital. I am very grateful to the medical coordinators of Bookimed for their help in organizing the consultation there. We have a very complex ophthalmological problem that we have been trying to solve for many years. We traveled to different countries, consulted with very experienced doctors in the largest university clinics in Germany. But unfortunately, none of them had encountered similar situations before and could not prescribe us an effective treatment to solve the problem. And when we arrived at the Dexeus hospital, we were able to get a very highly qualified consultation, conduct serious examinations, and now we have hope for a recovery, thanks to the highest-level specialist Dr. Verges, who turned out to be the first doctor who successfully treated previously such complex types of eye allergies as my son had. The clinic of this network pleasantly surprised us with the most modern approach to examinations, a high level of specialists and cutting-edge equipment. Absolutely not inferior to well-known German clinics. We will now recommend her to our friends and family. Мы были на обследовании в одной из клиник этой сети - госпитале Dexeus. Я очень благодарна мед.координаторам Bookimed за помощь в организации консультации именно там. У нас очень сложная офтальмологическая проблема, которую мы много лет пытаемся решить. Ездили в разные страны, консультировались у очень опытных докторов в самых крупных университетских клиниках Германии. Но к сожалению никто их них не сталкивался с подобными ситуациями ранее и не смог назначить нам действенное лечение для решения проблемы. А приехав в госпиталь Dexeus мы смогли получить очень высококвалифицированную консультацию, провести серьезные обследования и сейчас имеем надежду на выздоровление, благодаря специалисту высочайшего уровня доктору Вергесу, который оказался первым из докторов, успешно лечивший ранее такие сложные виды глазных аллергий, как у моего сына. Клиника этой сети нас приятно удивила максимально современным подходом к обследованиям, высоким уровнем специалистов и ультрасовременным оборудованием. Абсолютно не уступает известным немецким клиникам. Будем теперь рекомендовать ее своим друзьям и знакомым.

The patient was treated in this clinic

From the minute I was inquiring about an appointment through to an entire 2 hours of tests, I felt completely taken care of. Being in a foreign country where it’s not your first language can be daunting when needing healthcare. My healthcare navigator Leen was so wonderful. She brought me to each doctor or department, got me situated and was also my translator. She was kind, compassionate & so incredibly helpful. I was incredibly grateful to have her by my side. I saw Dr. Bassols who was incredibly warm, knowledgeable and put my fears at ease. The other technicians were also wonderful and caring. I highly recommend the staff and care I received at Centro Medico Teknon and the team from bookimed that connected me to them. Thank you everyone!!

The patient was treated of epilepsy

Hello. We did not visit the clinic, we had a Skype conference on 05/30/19, at which Dr. A. Russi, through an interpreter, told his vision of the problem of epilepsy in children, ordered additional tests to adjust the dose of the drug (which was prescribed by Ukrainian doctors) and the purpose of treatment, assured accompanied by treatment for six months. We sent the test results on 01.06.19, today 06.06.19 treatment is not prescribed. Our questions came the answer that the doctor advises once a week and it is not clear what day. We hope that the answer will come, the child will recover, but so far the sediment is not very good. If the same attitude is right in the clinic, then there is no point in going there Здравствуйте.
В клинике мы не были, у нас была скайп конференция 30.05.19, на которой доктор А.Русси через переводчика рассказал свое видение проблемы эпилепсии у детей, назначил дополнительные анализы для корректировки дозы препарата (который нам назначили украинские врачи) и назначения лечения, заверил в сопровождении лечения в течении шести месяцев.
Результаты анализов мы отправили 01.06.19, сегодня 06.06.19 лечение не назначено. На наши вопросы пришел ответ что доктор консультирует один раз в неделю и непонятно в какой день.
Надеемся что ответ придет, ребенок выздоровеет, но пока осадок не очень хороший.
Если такое же отношение непосредственно в клинике то смысла туда ехать я не вижу

No, I'm not happy with the advice! A month has passed: the name of the chemotherapy drug was sent, and the dosage, method of administration, the scheme is unknown. For 600 euros, advice is superficial !!! Нет, я не довольна консультацией! Месяц прошёл:название химиопрепарата прислали, а дозировка, метод введения, схема неизвестна.

The patient was treated of epilepsy

I had a consultation with Dr. Antonio Russi. Everything was great, and all doctors were attentive. According to check-up results in Russia, I was diagnosed with epilepsy and migraine and prescribed to take medicines.There was no effect — I got worse. Specialists promised me to send a treatment price at Teknon. Nobody did it. The doctor has advised to contact him if something goes wrong, but we have decided not to do that. I regret wasting our time and money. Now we are going to have an additional examination in a Moscow clinic. I think a Spanish doctor had incomplete medical picture about our case. Nobody can help my daughter. I don't accuse anybody. Good luck! Здравствуйте. У меня состоялась онлайн-консультация с Антонио Русси. Все понравилось, очень внимательные доктора. По результатам обследования, проведенных в России был поставлен диагноз эпилепсия и мигрень, прописали лекарство. Легче не стало. Стало хуже.

В клинике обещали, что пришлют прайс для лечения в клинике Текнон. Не прислали. Доктор посоветовал, что если что то пойдет не так, обращаться. Обращаться не стали. Жалко времени и денег. Ждем приглашение из Московской клиники для дополнительного обследования. Думаю, что для испанского доктора была неполная картина нашей болезни. Я в отчаянии. Нигде не могут помочь моей дочери. Никого не обвиняю. Всем удачи!

The Teknon surgeons specialize in minimally invasive operations with the Da Vinci robotic system. These are surgeries through small incisions (1-2 cm), the size of which resembles the kidney bean. Minimally invasive surgeries help reduce trauma to the body, avoid heavy bleeding, and speed up recovery time.

Da Vinci robot makes the surgeon’s movements of hands and instruments more precise inside the patient’s body. During the operation, a surgeon is under 100% control of a robot that minimizes medical errors significantly.

INSTITUTE OF REGENERATIVE MEDICINE

The Institute of Regenerative Medicine (Institut de Teràpia Regenerativa Tissular) works on the premises of Centro Medico Teknon.

Since 2003, specialists have been providing stem cell therapy. It is a new treatment option with stem cells that are the progenitors of all other types of cells in the human body and may transform in each of them. And since 2013, Teknon doctors have been growing muscles and ligaments using stem cells.

Over 1,300 patients have undergone stem cell treatment at Centro Medico Teknon. 700 of them have received stem cell treatment with high success rate (without complications).

30% of patients may face inflammation after the procedure. However, this is a good sign, and people with inflammation have a better result than people without this side effect. The inflammation usually lasts 1 week.

100% of the procedures have not caused any cancer.

Teknon regenerative specialists give stem cell treatment for:

  • osteoarthritis
  • disc degeneration
  • osteonecrosis
  • fractures
  • sports traumas.

Stem cell therapy at Teknon is popular among world-renowned athletes. This treatment method speeds up recovery, and as a result, there is no rehab period. Athletes come back to their ordinary life just after the treatment.

The Teknon Regenerative Medicine Institute is among a few medical facilities in the world to have permission to apply stem cell therapy. In 2006, the facility received the certificate from IBGM (Instituto de Biología y Genética Molecular), multidisciplinary center that develops and implements projects for cells functioning and usage.

The process of stem cell therapy at Teknon Hospital

  1. Bone marrow aspiration: a doctor makes a puncture from the sacral bone to take enough material to receive stem cells.
  2. Cultivation of stem cells: specialists grow stem cells for 1 week. Only 1 out of 100,000 cells is the stem one.
  3. The second phase of stem cells cultivation: cells planting for the second time also lasts 1 week.
  4. Freezing of stem cells: Teknon specialists freeze the cells at 100 degrees below zero in the liquid nitrogen. This period may take years until the stem cells become necessary for treatment.
  5. Thawing of stem cells: when a patient needs the therapy, specialists gradually unfreeze stem cells. It takes 10 days.
  6. The therapy itself: doctors make injections with stem cells. The procedure is minimally invasive, performed without any incisions. The lifespan of cells lasts 8 hours, so it is necessary to carry out the therapy within this time limit.

Trends of stem cell therapy at Centro Medico Teknon

Teknon specialists conduct the numerous trials to improve the effectiveness of the therapy. Doctors look for the specific markers to find out what stem cells are more effective and what diseases they may treat.

Today Teknon doctors develop programs to treat such disorders with stem cells as:

  • eye impairments
  • heart diseases
  • spinal cord disorders.
