Welcome to Barcelona Neuroinstitute

Our mission is to consistently provide the best neurosurgical treatment for patients suffering from neurological and spine pathologies, with excellence in technical performance and refinement in personal care.

– Passionate work and dedication

– Compassionate attention
– Close and trustful relationships with our clients
– The interests of our patients are our priority.

We search for the best solution to our patient’s problems, giving priority to safety to decrease the risk of complications, not only during the active phase of the surgical procedure but also from the initial contact to the follow-up period. We provide top quality neurosurgical care through our team of highly qualified neurosurgeons under the direction of Dr. Bartolomé Oliver and Dr. Emilio Ayats, whose combined experience extends to more than 9,000 major neurosurgical procedures.

Additionally, we have access to a wide spectrum of different specialists in other disciplines that makes possible the performance of innovative neurosurgical procedures at the highest safety level, which we tailor and personalize to our patients’ specific needs, including:

-Intraoperative neurophysiologists to monitor and preserve nervous system function.

-ENT specialized in endonasal endoscopy to create a minimally invasive skull base center for the treatment of many brain tumors through the nose, in addition to most frequent pituitary adenomas.

-Intraoperative higher brain function localization (such as speech), with the assistance of the neuropsychology team.

-A dedicated neuroanesthesiology group of experts in awake craniotomy.

-ICU specialist experts in pediatric and adult neurointensive care.

-Supportive collaboration of the neurology, neuroradiology and radiation oncology services.

-Radiosurgery (Novalis) and interventional endovascular facilities.

-Stem cells regenerative therapy.

Our goal has always been the achievement of excellence through the innovation in:

– New medical knowledge that makes easy the understanding of the disease.
– New devices better adapted to replace the disturbed body function.
– New surgical techniques addressing the surgical goal in a less aggressive way.

This has led us to the achievement of an excellent international reputation in three Neurosurgical areas:

(1) Spine Surgery
(2) Epilepsy Surgery (Pediatric and Adults)
(3) Pituitary Adenoma and Skull Base Tumors

Furthermore, proximity to our patients is promoted and maintained throughout the entire process from the information request, decision building and hospital admission, to the aftercare period. We work on building a close relationship with our patients based on mutual trust, empathy, easy access and good feedback.

We understand how stressful a medical condition and its surgical treatment is for a patient and his or her family. As such we are keen to answer any questions or clarify any concerns that may arise throughout the process.
