Clinic Review

Medical treatment at the Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz

Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz was founded in 1935 in Madrid. The hospital is part of the Quironsalud group, which is the healthcare leader in Spain. It has 47 hospitals located throughout the country.

The 72,000 m2 clinic employs 3,000 people, has 18 operating rooms, 677 hospital beds, 212 consulting rooms.

In 2017, about 1,200,000 consultations and over 32,000 surgical interventions were carried out at the hospital. In the same year, specialists conducted 1,600 clinical trials, 862 of which were on the efficacy of drugs and medical techniques.

Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz and its research institute are the only ministry-certified facilities of this kind among private health providers in Spain.

Medical achievements of the country done with the support of the Jiménez Díaz Foundation:

награда клиники
  • The world's first endobronchial coils therapy for severe emphysema. The method consists of implanting a permanent spiral into the most affected areas of the lung, allowing it to shrink more effectively.
награда клиники
  • Identification of seven biomarkers for early-stage chronic kidney processes.
награда клиники
  • The first non-invasive test for early diagnosis of endometrial cancer.
награда клиники
  • The first 3D robotic laparoscopy in Europe.

The main values of the University Clinic of the Jiménez Diaz Foundation are quality medical services and a comfortable environment for patients.

At the end of 2019, a new surgical unit was opened, equipped with 18 operating rooms, a new intensive care unit, and the latest technological equipment. There are two hybrid operating rooms, an operating room with an integrated intra-operative MRI, an operating room for robotic surgery equipped with the Xi Da Vinci system and six integrated operating theatres that allow transmitting surgical operations anywhere in the world.

Features of the Clinic

CANCER TREATMENT AT THE Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz

An Oncology Institute operates on the basis of the clinic. Specialists are engaged in diagnostics and treatment of malignant and benign neoplasms. They use methods such as chemotherapy, external and contact radiation therapy: radiosurgery and brachytherapy.

The Jiménez Díaz Foundation Hospital has Elekta SL-20 and Elekta Synergy Beam linear accelerators for radiosurgical procedures. When using these devices, the generated beam of radiation aims directly to the tumor, destroying it. This significantly increases the effectiveness of treatment.

In cases of gynecological oncology, doctors use the MicroSelectron HDR device to perform brachytherapy. The point of the procedure is to install the radiation source directly into the tumor. The method is highly accurate and efficient, as it considers the individual characteristics of patients, and is well-tolerated.

The MicroSelectron HDR platform moves the radioactive source step by step, determining its exact position during the installation, which reduces radiation exposure and makes the procedure safer. The technology can make up to 25,000 movements. The radiation source can be stopped every 2.5, 5 and 10 mm.

Cancer treatment at the University Hospital Fundación Jiménez Díaz

For the treatment of prostate cancer, doctors use the contact brachytherapy method of low power I-125. The procedure is performed once, it does not require hospitalization and radiation protection.

Specialists from the Jiménez Diaz Foundation Hospital use a Philips Brilliance Big Bore CT scanner to diagnose and administer catheters and other minimally traumatic instruments that require imaging. The system produces high-quality images with low radiation exposure.

 

Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz DEPARTMENT OF CARDIOLOGY

Doctors diagnose heart pathologies using non-invasive methods such as echocardiography, coronary heart CT, MRI and stress tests. The department has the most advanced technology in the field of cardiac imaging:

Fundación Jiménez Díaz University Hospital
  • 8 echocardiographs that enable real-time 3D studies using a "dynamic heart model". All methods of echocardiography are performed: echotransthoracic, transesophageal study of cardiac strain, pharmacological stress echo, 3D echo, and stress echo.
Fundación Jiménez Díaz University Hospital
  • 2 ergometric tapes to record respiratory airflow (ergospirometry) and isotope studies to help evaluate the ventricular function of the heart.
Fundación Jiménez Díaz University Hospital
  • 2 multislice CT systems (128 and 64 slices): coronary artery condition examination, coronary calcium index determination for atherosclerosis, pulmonary vein examination, pre-TAVI examination (aortic valve implantation).
Fundación Jiménez Díaz University Hospital
  • The team of specialists at the Clinic Fundación Jiménez Diaz can reconstruct mitral valves with Mitra Clip technology. The implantation of the device is carried out through a catheter, which prevents the opening of the chest cavity. The efficiency of this technology is no less than that of open surgery, and the recovery period is significantly shorter.

The close cooperation between the Cardiology Department of the Jiménez Diaz Foundation Hospital and the Nuclear Medicine Service and the Radiology Service allows the team to implement an interdisciplinary approach to patient diagnosis and treatment.

 

DEPARTMENT OF NEUROSURGERY AT THE Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz

Neurosurgery at the Hospital Universitario Fundación Jiménez Díaz

Specialists of the hospital treat various complex diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems. Neurosurgeons are constantly trained in new methods of diagnosis and treatment so that patients recover faster and with less effort. Doctors use neuronavigation technologies during surgeries, which helps them perform highly accurate interventions.

For the treatment of brain and spinal cord tumors, doctors at the Jiménez Díaz Foundation Hospital use robotic surgery and radiosurgery.

This ensures the high efficiency of the therapy and reduces injury risk during the operation.

A team of specialists deals with functional neurosurgery in cooperation with the Department of Neurology. Doctors perform deep brain stimulation in cases of Parkinson's disease and trifacial neuralgia.

With this method, certain parts of the brain are electrically stimulated, which reduces or eliminates symptoms of the disease.
