Teknon Medical Center, a reference in complex surgery in Barcelona

Teknon Medical Center: one of the leading hospitals in the private healthcare sector in Spain.

Teknon Medical Center is part of the Quirónsalud Hospital Group and is one of the leading hospitals in the private healthcare sector in Spain. It is at the forefront in high-risk interventions that require great technological complexity and a highly qualified and specialised medical team.

In addition, from its privileged location in a residential area in the upper part of the city of Barcelona, Teknon Medical Center is a campus of more than 60,000 m2 structured into eight large, interconnected areas where more than 800 leading specialists practise. The campus was inaugurated in 1994 with the aim of welcoming both national and international patients and making them feel comfortable and well cared for. To this end, Teknon Medical Centre has individual, bright, air-conditioned rooms with all the necessary medical and health equipment. It also offers personalised attention in several languages.


Why is Teknon Medical Center a role model?

The rigorous culture of quality management, aimed at offering the best care and patient satisfaction with maximum safety, makes Teknon Medical Center a benchmark in the health and clinical field. This is confirmed by such distinctions as the one awarded by the prestigious American organisation Joint Commission International.

There are also many other reasons that make Centro Medico Teknon a leader in its sector, including the following:


Being among the best hospitals in the world

Newsweek magazine has included Teknon Medical Centre in its latest World’s Best Specialized Hospitals 2023 ranking as one of the best centres in the world in 10 medical specialties.


Inclusion in the TOP 100 of doctors practising in Catalonia

The TOP 100 list within the TopMetges.cat 2021, prepared by the Coordenadas Institute of Governance and Applied Economics, has highlighted several doctors at Teknon Medical Centre as the best doctors practising in public and private hospitals in Catalonia for their healthcare, research and teaching activities.


Using the most advanced technology

In order to achieve greater precision, both in its diagnoses and in its surgical interventions, Teknon Medical Center has the latest technological advances. Advances such as:

  • The first robotic system that can be used in the operating theatre, called Da Vinci, which allows minimally invasive robotic surgery.
  • A robotic digital hybrid visualisation platform for highly complex operations. A tool that provides more precision and control. At the same time it helps to minimise fatigue in long procedures thanks to its 2D and 3D visualisation system with 4K quality.


Their Specialities

More than 800 professionals cover all the medical and surgical specialties offered by the hospital and more than 2,000 professionals ensure the medical care, comfort and personalised attention of patients.

Treating each speciality with a specific, multidisciplinary team of professionals allows them to provide a transversal approach in accordance with the needs of each patient.

Needs from which synergies are created between specialties and professionals, giving rise to such interesting projects as the Quirónsalud Teknon Heart Institute, whose aim is to prevent, diagnose and treat cardiovascular diseases. Today it has become one of the leading cardiology centres in Spain. This has been possible thanks to the experience of doctors such as Dr. Xavier Ruyra, Dr. Antonio Berruezo and Dr. Juli Carballo, and also to having the best facilities. From a hybrid operating theatre to three haemodynamic rooms, a consultation area, a semi-critical unit and a hospitalisation area. It also offers 24-hour care and a special “high-resolution” consultation service so that in just one visit you can obtain a diagnosis, a treatment plan and contact with an expert nurse for any subsequent emergencies.

Another of Teknon Medical Centre’s outstanding specialities is urology. This is confirmed by the more than 200 robotic urological operations performed, making it the private centre that has performed the most operations of this type, equalling the number of public centres.

It is also worth mentioning other medical specialities that are highly valued by patients, such as the neurosciences institute with Dr. Gerard Conesa; the traumatology unit with Dr. Joaquim Casañas; the peritoneal carcinomatosis unit with Dr. Domenico Savia; the maxillofacial surgery unit with Dr. Federico Hernández Alfaro; and the inflammatory diseases unit with Dr. Miquel Sans.


Its facilities

Thanks to the 60,000 m2 of its campus, Teknon Medical Center can offer a large and complete space to its patients. the space is made up of:

  • 2 buildings with 150 medical offices, with direct connection to the clinic and direct access to the car park.
  • 20 operating theatres, 12 of which are for high-risk surgery, such as cardiovascular or neurosurgical surgery, and the remaining 8 are for outpatient surgery.
  • 211 single rooms, 13 Royal suites and 6 suites.
  • A heliport for possible emergencies and the technical and human equipment necessary to perform operations on patients arriving at the Emergency Department, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.


Offering individualised care

For Teknon Medical Center, the patient is the focal point of all its actions. In addition to their physical well-being, their emotional well-being is also very important. For this reason, a team of specialised nurses has created a Surgical Emotional Support Unit with the aim of reducing the anxiety and fear that surgery can cause in some people.

Furthermore, focusing on foreign patients, it has an International Programme in which an assistant offers comprehensive and personalised care in the patient’s language.


Quirónsalud Hospital Group

Being part of the Quirónsalud Hospital Group means having the capacity to offer the most extensive healthcare network in Spain, with more than 150 centres throughout the country and more than 45,000 professionals. It also means having the experience of more than 60 years of experience in caring for people’s health and wellbeing.
