About the Doctor
Educated in different North American Universities such as the University of Emory in Atlanta, the University of Oklahoma and the University of California in San Diego, since 2011 Dr. Clavel has been the head of the Neurosurgery and Spinal Column department of the Dr. Clavel Institute of the Hospital Quirónsalud Barcelona.
He is a world renowned specialist in minimally invasive back surgery and artificial disc replacement (ADR) surgery. This technique is used to replace a damaged disc with a new one to preserve the movement of the joint and thus not needing to fuse the operated vertebrae. Using this method prevents the degeneration of the adjacent disc and thus prevents possibly having to undergo surgery in the future. Also osteotomies are not performed which could destabilize the vertebrae and result in an important amount of blood loss. Thanks to his internationally renowned prestige and experience, more than 200 foreign patients have decided to allow him to conduct surgery on them in the last 8 yearsView Contact Details
