25 years of experience
Pioneers in fetal surgery and an accumulated experience of more than 2,000 fetal surgeries. We treat more than 100 cases each year.
At the forefront of fetal surgery
We have first performed several new fetal operations and contributed to the development of many others.
Minimally invasive procedures
We have a consolidated experience in a full range of minimally invasive procedures carried out on both mother and fetus.
Research is a priority for us
We publish our own data on operation times and pregnancy outcomes for most currently offered operations, being at the forefront of research and development.
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.
Fetal surgery referents
Comprehensive care from before birth
We are structured in multidisciplinary clinical units with fetal medicine and pediatric specialists to offer comprehensive counselling and care for a child before its birth and throughout its childhood. For instance, every year our Fetal Cardiology team, comprising fetal medicine and pediatric cardiologist specialists, take care of 200 babies with congenital heart defects that are prenatally diagnosed.
We continue with our patients after birth
The pediatric specialists and surgeons at SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital are involved in our clinical units, which offer state-of the-art clinical care for all pediatric problems after birth. In our multidisciplinary Fetal Medicine Session, all complex cases are discussed by all relevant specialists to ensure that the maximum expertise informs decisions on management and therapy.
