Clinic Review

Pitié-Salpêtrière University Hospital

The Pitié Salpêtrière is a large, multidisciplinary public hospital in Paris. It combines two medical institutions: Salpêtrière, which was founded in 1656, and Pitié, which was incorporated in 1964. The hospital has university status and comprises 90 buildings and 10 centres offering medical care in all fields. Its main specialities include neurology, cardiology, cardiac surgery, oncology and oncohematology, neurosurgery, orthopaedics and traumatology.

The hospital was home to some of the most renowned doctors who contributed to the development of medicine not just in France, but around the world. Jean-Martin Charcot and Sigmund Freud were among them.

The Hospital Pitié Salpêtrière has all the latest facilities for investigating illnesses in various areas. Two gamma cameras, combined with an X-ray scanner, allow for high-quality scintigraphy of the brain, heart, lungs and bones. In addition, the hospital has PET-CT and MRI 3 Tesla equipment which gives a detailed picture of the patient's condition and enables appropriate treatments.

Features of the Clinic

Cancer treatment at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital

The oncology department at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital offers patients treatment for common cancers as well as rare ones. The oncology team works with other specialist departments (haematology, surgery, radiotherapy) to provide patients with the most comprehensive and effective treatment programmes. Thanks to the participation of doctors from different specialities, the patient receives individual treatment, taking into account all the characteristics of their body from different angles.

Foreign patients are most often referred to the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital for treatment of breast, ovarian, stomach, lung and prostate cancer.

Cancer is treated here using minimally invasive surgical techniques. Endoscopic and robotic techniques are also available. This makes it possible to perform more precise surgical interventions - the margin of error with this approach is as little as 1 mm. For the patient, this means that healthy tissue will not be damaged and the recovery period will not be long.

The latest chemotherapy drugs, which have fewer side effects and are easier for patients to tolerate, are used in the treatment of cancer at the Hospital Pitié Salpêtrière. Doctors at the hospital also apply modern radiation therapy.

These include medical techniques such as brachytherapy and GammaKnife. In addition, French doctors have turned to intensity-modulated radiotherapy, a method of treatment in which beams of radiation are dosed to the mass. This minimises their effect on healthy cells.

Neurology at the Hospital Pitié Salpêtrière

The Department of Neurology was founded in 1964. It is a part of the University Hospital for Translational Neurology in Paris and works closely with the research laboratories of the Institute of the Brain and Spine (ICM). Congenital and acquired diseases of the nervous system are treated here. Foreigners most often come to the Hospital Pitier-Salpétrière for treatment of Alzheimer's and Parkinsonism. The hospital uses EEG, EMG, polysomnography and brain evoked potentials to examine patients and refine the diagnosis.

The clinic is the largest university centre in France in its field and research is constantly taking place on its premises. With their help, Pitier-Salpétrière provides therapy for the most complex cases of neurological diseases in adults and children.

Neurosurgery at Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital

The Department of Neurosurgery primarily treats tumour diseases of the spinal cord and brain. There are 84 beds in the Neurosurgery Centre's inpatient unit.

The neurosurgery doctors at the Hospital Pitié Salpêtrièreuse robotic systems in their work: in 2018, the latest generation da Vinci Xi® system was installed here. It has improved functions that help surgeons to operate more precisely and without tissue trauma - this ensures a shorter recovery period without significant pain.

Before the operation, Dr Pitié Salpêtrière draws up a detailed intervention programme. It is created based on 3D images from the preliminary diagnosis. Thanks to this approach, the risks inherent to neurosurgical interventions are reduced.

The most common surgical procedures are for patients with meningiomas, glioblastomas, neurinomas and vascular malformations. In addition, neurosurgeons operate on patients with herniated discs and stenosis of the spinal canal.

Pitié Salpêtrière Orthopaedics and Traumatology

Today, the School of Spinal Surgery at the Pitié Salpêtrière Hospital is the leading hospital in France. It treats congenital and acquired disorders of the musculoskeletal system as well as sports injuries. The Orthopaedics and Trauma Centre performs more than 4,000 surgical procedures each year and carries out more than 19,000 consultations.

Joint replacement surgery is performed here - patients can leave the ward just a few hours after the operation. After just 14 days, the patient can walk independently with the help of a cane.

The Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology is equipped with an intraoperative imaging system, through which the surgeon can monitor the progress of the intervention. The hospital also offers rehabilitation services for patients - this helps them to complete their treatment more effectively.
