The importance of these techniques, which complement or replace traditional surgical techniques, with minimally invasive techniques involving less aggression for patients, reduced hospital stay and quicker return to daily activity.
Professionals who perform these techniques are interventional radiologists and vascular surgeons using a multidisciplinary unit of minimally invasive treatments. Require the use of ionizing radiation in conjunction with sophisticated equipment such specialists expertise in handling special instrumental and knowledge of imaging methods used to perform these procedures. Currently in Spain there are about 260 professionals dedicated to these techniques.
Collaboration between Interventional Radiology and Vascular Surgery is highest in the Severo Ochoa Hospital, resulting in high quality, level of interventions and resource optimization.
Med&Home Medical Integration had the responsability to interconnect both hospitals for the live cases transmision.
