Quirónsalud services on the Balearic Islands
Quirónsalud on the Balearic Islands offers a complete portfolio of healthcare services, with the highest standards of excellence in medical care.
All the centres are connected to each other by a fleet of ambulances prepared for emergency transport assistance, scheduled transport and coverage of all kinds of events.
Quirónsalud also offers a network of dental clinics: Quirónsalud Dental, with 3 centres in Palma, a centre integrated in the hospital and one for paediatric patients, as well as Quirónsalud Dental centres in Inca and Manacor.
A new Quirónsalud Palmaplanas Ophthalmology Institute has recently been opened, equipped with the most advanced technology currently available on the Balearic Islands.
3 Tesla MRI with artificial intelligence at Quirónsalud Palmaplanas Hospital.
The tunnel is 10 cm wider than previous models to improve patient comfort. Technologically, the machine is equipped with Deep Learning – Artificial Intelligence to obtain images of the highest quality and highest precision in diagnosis. It is the first 3 Tesla equipment in the private healthcare sector in the Balearic Islands.
More comfort for the patient
A 10 cm larger circumference than previous models, a wider and more comfortable bench that is closer to the floor to make it easier for the patient to get on and off, and a noise reduction system. All these elements, aimed at improving the patient’s experience during the examination, are complemented by a new system of signal receiving antennas. This design achieves better image quality and patient comfort compared to conventional antenna technologies.
System with non-rigid coils
The antennas are not only very light, but also mouldable to fit the patient’s anatomy. They can be rolled up on themselves and are able to cover any area of the body regardless of its size or shape, with no rigid areas or pressure points, making them as comfortable as a small blanket. The special feature is that they have a device inside them to capture higher quality signals from the internal tissues. This allows for more reliable images with higher diagnostic accuracy and more comfort for the patient.
Higher image quality, better diagnostic accuracy
3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging uses a higher magnetic field intensity to achieve higher image resolution, resulting in better differentiation of tissues, better visualisation of small anatomical structures and higher sensitivity in detecting certain pathologies.
Greater possibilities in diagnostic studies
Among the advances in image quality, clarity and precision offered by the new MRI is the ability to correct movement and allow patients to breathe freely. In addition, the new technology allows specialists at Quirónsalud Palmaplanas Hospital to perform more in-depth examinations of the brain, for example in cases of multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease; vascular examinations of the central nervous system and examinations of the peripheral arteries; cardiology examinations, such as cardio-maps; abdominal examinations, as well as oncology examinations of the breast and prostate; and even examinations of musculoskeletal injuries with more precise images, which is highly sought after by top athletes. It is also supported by a groundbreaking artificial intelligence system that automatically identifies anatomical structures and increases diagnostic confidence in a growing number of pathologies. Finally, the new machine requires 50% less power than other MRI machines, resulting in significant energy savings.
Clínica Rotger incorporates the Da Vinci Xi robot to its new High Complexity Surgical Unit
Clínica Rotger incorporates the most advanced version of the Da Vinci Xi Robot into its operating theatres, with 3D technology and articulated arms with 360º rotation, making it the first precision robotic surgery equipment in private healthcare on the Balearic Islands.
All this thanks to the 3D vision technology it incorporates, and a system of articulated arms that extends the range of action of the surgeon’s hands, allowing 360-degree rotations. For the patient, the application of minimally invasive robotic surgery techniques means smaller incisions, less bleeding, lower rates of infection or other complications, less postoperative pain and faster recovery.
In addition, the field of action of robotic surgery is becoming wider and wider and, although it was initially used in the field of Urology for the treatment of prostate cancer and other urological tumours, scientific evidence has now allowed its use to be extended to other specialties such as Gynaecology, General Surgery or Head and Neck Surgery.
This is possible thanks to the fact that the Da Vinci surgical robot provides greater access to complicated anatomical areas, with greater precision and a better range of movement, significantly reducing post-surgical complications. In this way, it is possible to increase the complexity of surgeries and perform more radical interventions such as tumour resection. In other cases, it also makes it possible to shorten surgery and reduce anaesthesia time.
New 128-slice multidetector CT
An advanced diagnostic equipment that allows the radiologist to obtain the best quality images with the lowest radiation doses for the patient, and with a Gantry or circumference opening of 82 cm in diameter, more comfortable for the patient and for work of the specialists.
New equipment for diagnosis and treatment in Ophthalmology at the Hospital Quirónsalud Palmaplanas
The Quirónsalud Palmaplanas Hospital has modernised its Ophthalmology service with the creation of the Quirónsalud Palmaplanas Ophthalmology Institute.
The completely renovated facilities are divided into 6 consultation offices, a separate testing area and an operating theatre exclusively for eye surgery. All equipped with the most advanced and pioneering technology currently available on the Balearic Islands for the diagnosis and treatment of patients.
The medical staff has also been completely renewed with the incorporation of leading specialists in the field of Ophthalmology on the Balearic Islands:
Dr. Ana Cardona
Dr. Arantxa Urdiales
Dr. Noelia Druetta
Dr. Joana Perelló
· Lasik Surgery
Clínica Rotger Surgery
The new Surgical Unit located on the third floor of Clínica Rotger occupies an area of 2,700 square metres dedicated entirely to the performance of surgical interventions and childbirths.
The new facilities double Clínica Rotger‘s surgical capacity and are prepared to carry out practically all the surgical techniques currently available under the best safety conditions.
Clínica Rotger Obstetrics
Clínica Rotger is the private health centre that attends the most births all over the Balearic Islands. A first class hospital, equipped with high technology and a new Obstetric Unit – Birth at Clínica Rotger, modern, welcoming and fully equipped with technology and security systems, as well as the main elements that allow the mother to configure the delivery room and its environment according to her preferences.
Heart Attack Code and Stroke Code
Clínica Rotger and Hospital Quirónsalud Palmaplanas are pioneers in the introduction of the Heart Attack Code and Stroke Code in private healthcare on the Balearic Islands. Since 2018, both the Stroke Code and the Heart Attack Code have been activated more than 400 times in Quirónsalud group hospitals.
During this time, protocols have been adapted to attend to such patients as quickly as possible, significantly reducing care times and achieving excellent results in patient recovery.
The Arrhythmia Unit of Clínica Rotger and Hospital Quirónsalud Palmaplanas led by Dr. Josep Brugada has completed more than 400 Cardiac Electrophysiology procedures in 2021.
“Physiological pacing reduces mortality by up to 21% and has a success rate of over 95% in patients requiring a pacemaker”..
The Unit has experienced an enormous growth in patients and procedures over the last few years, currently performing around 400 procedures a year between Hospital Quirónsalud Palmaplanas and Clínica Rotger. In many cases, these are related to the most advanced ablation techniques, cryo and carto ablation.
It is the only hospital in the city centre with all medical and surgical specialities and 24/7 ICU and emergency services, with medical attention also in English and German.
Clínica Rotger has incorporated more than 120 doctors forming a medical staff of excellence, which has also allowed it to expand its portfolio of services.
All the spaces for outpatient consultations have been renovated and offer a warm and welcoming environment for patients. In addition, all the hospitalisation floors have also been upgraded. Specifically, the eighth floor offers panoramic views of the Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca, the city centre, the sea and the Serra de Tramuntana, a World Heritage Site.
Finally, Clínica Rotger has refurbished the entire Surgical Area, which now has the most modern operating theatres on the island.
The Clinic has an outpatient surgery block, with an awakening area equipped with individual rooms for resuscitation and constant supervision of the patient. It also has 5 operating theatres for High Complexity Surgery, with advanced equipment for patient safety and to facilitate the work of the different surgical teams. The refurbishment also included the creation of a new Obstetrics Unit with 5 individual delivery rooms equipped with advanced safety systems and comfort elements for the mother, the baby and her companion. The unit has a delivery room with a bathtub for water birth, an operating theatre exclusively for caesarean sections and its own resuscitation area.
