The Hospital Clínic, first hospital in Spain to carry out transorbital surgery to extract skull base tumours

The Hospital Clínic de Barcelona is consolidating its transorbital surgery programme for patients with skull base tumours. This surgery is led by the Neurosurgery Service headed by Dr. Joaquim Enseñat and requires teamwork, since it also involves the participation of Dr. Alberto Di Somma, neurosurgeon, Dr. Juan Carlos Sánchez of the Hospital Clínic Ophthalmology Institute and Dr. Isam Alobid coordinator of the Otorhinolaryngology Service multidisciplinary skull base surgery group.
