Verified review. The patient was treated of spina bifida (cleft spine) in Sant Joan de Déu – Barcelona Children’s Hospital

Good day to all! Finally we got our hands on writing about the treatment of our child at the Sant Joan de Deu Barselona hospital. I would like to say once again a huge thank you to Bookimed for the help in choosing a clinic. This is not just a hospital, THIS IS A SUPER HOSPITAL !!! To be honest, they did not even expect that medicine could be of such a high level. About the staff separately: from nurses to professors of the clinic, damn well, all simple, normal, kind people. I have never seen such attention to a child, literally everything is scheduled by the minute, everyone is smiling, joking. In general, the little one did not understand that he had undergone a complex operation on the spinal cord. After the operation and coming out of complex anesthesia, the child never even cried and did not experience any pain (except for changing the dressing, removing the adhesive plaster). The hospital itself is huge, EVERYTHING FOR CHILDREN, everything is in pictures, slides, balls, a dinosaur farm. Everything has been done so that the children would not be afraid of doctors, etc. And a special BIG THANKS to our neurosurgeon Jose Hinojosa Mena-Bernal with a capital letter. This is a man with golden hands and a kind heart (just works wonders)! The child began to walk on his own 5 days after the operation. Thanks to Mikki, the resuscitator, a young guy who looked after the little one after the operation, like his son. And also the hospital's translator, Mikhail, who, together with us, empathized with everything that happened, thanks to nurse Svetlana who helped in all matters related to caring for the little one, including as an interpreter, and just a good kind woman. Thanks to our curator of the hospital for organizing the stay in the clinic, cheerful, always cheerful with a smile on her face Valeria, deciding all issues of hospitalization and treatment. MANY THANKS TO ALL HONEY STAFF SANT JOAN DE DEU. You are best !!! CONTINUE SAVING THE CHILDREN AND MORE, and we, in turn, promise not to get sick anymore !! Respectfully, V.V. Solomatin Добрый день всем! Наконец добрались руки написать о лечении нашего ребенка в госпитале Sant Joan de Deu Barselona. Хочется еще раз сказать огромное спасибо Bookimed за помощь в выборе клиники. Это не просто госпиталь ,ЭТО СУПЕР ГОСПИТАЛЬ!!! Честно говоря даже не ожидали, что медицина может быть такого высокого уровня. Про персонал отдельно: начиная от медсестёр и до профессоров клиники, блин ну все простые нормальные добрые люди.Такого внимания к ребенку я еще не видел ,буквально все расписано по минутам, все улыбаются, шутят. В общем малой так и не понял, что ему сделали сложнейшую операцию на спинном мозге. Ребенок после операции и выхода из сложного наркоза, даже ни разу не плакал и не испытывал никаких болевых ощущений (за исключением смены повязки, снятия лейкопластыря). Сам госпиталь огромный, ВСЕ ДЛЯ ДЕТЕЙ, все в рисунках ,горки, шарики, ферма диназавров. Сделанно все так что бы детки не боялись врачей и т.д. Ну и отдельное ОГРОМНОЕ СПАСИБО нашему с большой буквы Нейрохирургу Jose Hinojosa Mena-Bernal. Это человек с золотыми руками и добрым сердцем (просто творит чудеса)! Ребенок через 5 дней после операции начал ходить самостоятельно.
Спасибо Реаниматологу Mikki, молодой парень, который ухаживал после операции за мелким, как за своим сыном . А так же переводчику госпиталя Михаилу, который вместе с нами сопереживал все что происходило, спасибо медсестре Светлане которая помогала во всех вопросах связанных по уходу за малым и в том числе как переводчик, да и просто хорошая добрая женщина. Спасибо нашему куратору госпиталя за организацию нахождения в клинике, жизнерадостная, всегда веселая с улыбкой на лице Валерия, решающая все вопросы госпитализации и лечения. ОГРОМНОЕ СПАСИБО ВСЕМУ МЕД ПЕРСОНАЛУ SANT JOAN DE DEU . Вы ЛУЧШИЕ !!! ПРОДОЛЖАЙТЕ СПАСАТЬ ДЕТОК И ДАЛЬШЕ, а мы в свою очередь обещаем больше не болеть!! С уважение Соломатин В.В.

Verified review. The patient was treated of spina bifida (cleft spine) in Centro Médico Teknon

Everything was basically good, the only thing they said was that the consultation would be an hour, and she was half an hour. Also, the information that we need to do before the consultation did not reach us from the very beginning, so it was initially not complete, so you need to ask all the questions in advance, so that there are no lost moments. In general, such a format as remote consultation is very convenient. Все было в принципе хорошо, единственное говорили, что консультация будет час, а она была пол часа. Так же изначально до нас не дошла информация, что необходимо сделать мрт перед консультацией, поэтому она изначально была не полной, так что нужно задавать заранее все вопросы, что бы потом не было упущенных моментов. В общем такой формат как дистанционная консультация, очень удобный.

FAQ about Spina bifida (cleft spine) Treatment

Treatment of spina bifida at different ages

Treatment of spina bifida (spina bifida) depends on the severity of the disease, the accompanying symptoms, and the age of the patient. The main method is surgery to close spina bifida. It must be carried out in the first few hours or days after the birth of the child. This will help reduce the risk of infection and spinal cord injury.

What can treatment for spina bifida in children include?

During the operation to treat spina bifida in children, the neurosurgeon correctly places the spinal cord and exposed tissues of the spine, covers them with muscles and skin. Sometimes a special shunt may be needed to avoid cerebral hydrocephalus.

If the surgical treatment of spina bifida in a child is not carried out in time, the disease progresses rapidly. Because of this, orthopedic rehabilitation, urological and gastroenterological treatment, and surgery to get rid of paralysis may be needed in the future.

What can treatment for spina bifida in adults include?

Treatment for spina bifida in adults depends on the symptoms. The patient may be prescribed physiotherapy and anti-inflammatory drugs, which will stop the further development of the disease. Surgical treatment is rarely performed by doctors, only if there is a risk of damage to the spinal cord.

Is it possible to treat spina bifida in a fetus?

Treatment of spina bifida in the fetus is possible between 19 and 25 weeks of the mother's pregnancy. Doctors perform prenatal surgery, during which they restore the baby's spinal cord right in the womb. According to studies, these children have a 2-fold lower risk of hydrocephalus and other symptoms than with surgery immediately after birth.
