La Pediatric Thoracic Surgery Unit of the Corporación Sanitaria Parc Taulí, of Sabadell, is run by Dr. Bernardo Nunez and his team, where Dr. also stands out as a reference in the chest. Natalia Álvarez García. It is in this unit and in its pediatric thoracic pathology operating room where patients affected by Pectus are operated on in our center.
Currently, they are the pediatric surgeons with the most international experience in the technique (along with Dr. Bardají, the doctor who described the technique in 2012).
But the Parc Taulí Pediatric Surgery Service firmly believes in teamwork, and you will be able to see the rest of the members both on the day of surgery and assistants, as well as on the visit during the hospitalization.
During the visits in External Consultations (CCEE), after the referral of the pediatrician, you will always be visited by Bernardo Núñez. All relevant diagnostic studies (CT, spirometry, echocardiography…) will be requested from CCEE. To do this we have one Multidisciplinary Pectus unit, where we work closely with the Pediatric Pneumology and Pediatric Cardiology Services, as well as the Institution's Radiodiagnosis Service.
If you are a surgical patient, we will be on a waiting list and, prior to surgery, will be visited by a pediatric or adult anesthetist (according to age), who will explain you well how everything will go and what they will use to manage post-surgical pain.
The postoperative period will take place at the Pediatrics hospitalization plant or at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. And until the date of discharge, you will be surrounded by a high-level specialized pediatric nursing team.
