Minimally invasive spinal surgery is an intervention through small incisions from 0.5 to 6 cm (depending on the type of procedure). Doctors use micro tools and a camera to monitor the process. After minimally invasive operations, patients recover faster than after the open ones.
Neuronavigation is a special system tracking the location of surgical instruments during the operation. This method allows a surgeon operating through small incisions and performing movements precisely without touching the surrounding healthy tissues.
Tumor surgery with fluorescence is a technique that allows determining the size of the tumor and its borders to completely remove it.

3 haemodynamic rooms (digital rooms equipped with the most advanced technology for the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery diseases)
consulting area (place, where a doctor examines patients)
intermediate care unit (specific department for older adults to receive comprehensive medical care that helps them to be independent as much as possible after discharge and prevent moving into residential or nursing homes)
hospitalization area (subdivision where a patient, who needs an admission, gets all necessary health care).

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
Bone marrow aspiration: a doctor makes a puncture from the sacral bone to take enough material to receive stem cells.
Cultivation of stem cells: specialists grow stem cells for 1 week. Only 1 out of 100,000 cells is the stem one.
The second phase of stem cells cultivation: cells planting for the second time also lasts 1 week.
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.
Thawing of stem cells: when a patient needs the therapy, specialists gradually unfreeze stem cells. It takes 10 days.
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.
