In recent years, the number of cornea transplants performed at Hospital Clínic has increased to more than 100 operations each year. This makes it one of the top public hospitals in Catalonia by number of operations in this field.
Close collaboration with the Banc de Teixits de Catalunya (Tissue Bank of Catalonia) has allowed us to pioneer the use of new corneal donor tissue preparations (organic cultures, cell cultures, corneal flaps using a microkeratome, etc.). Particularly significant is the clinical trial carried out using cultured corneal epithelial stem cells, which is already applied in clinical trials.
Hospital Clínic is part of the National Health System CSUR (centres, services and reference units) network in the field of complex ocular surface reconstruction using corneal transplants.
