We have long led the world in fetal surgery and continue to research and develop new techniques.
A recognized referral centre
In BCNatal's clinical activity in the Women's Area of SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital we have saved hundreds of lives even before they started, caring for mothers and their unborn children from near and far.
Pioneers in fetal surgery and an accumulated experience of more than 2,000 fetal surgeries. We treat more than 100 cases each year.
We have first performed several new fetal operations and contributed to the development of many others.
We have a consolidated experience in a full range of minimally invasive procedures carried out on both mother and fetus.
We publish our own data on operation times and pregnancy outcomes for most currently offered operations, being at the forefront of research and development.
“Thanks to the surgery at BCNatal - Sant Joan de Déu my little daughter Elsa had a much better chance of surviving her diaphragmatic hernia and today she is a healthy child full of life”
“The most sophisticated part of fetal medicine is surgery during pregnancy, specifically on the fetus. This option was considered science fiction until 20 years ago, but now we can carry it out thanks to technology.”
"We put our son's life in their hands with absolute confidence because of their experience and research. Thanks to the team at the Hospital, which we visit regularly, we can say that our son is cured. The research, the fact of forming a parent-doctor team, the determination and confidence that they always conveyed to us, have made Daniel's a success story.”
