I was operated for lumbar disc herniation by Dr. Gilete in February 2016. Due to my spinal instability, he had to perform a spinal fusion of L4-L5. The truth is that I have recovered the strength in my leg and the back pain has also disappeared. If I had known I would not have waited so long on getting the operation. The relationship with Dr. Gilete was always professional, clear with the explanations and instructions. The care received was very satisfying. I would certainly recommend Dr. Gilete.
Thank you for the service that you have provided in respect of my recent medical condition. Your staff are very professional and very attentive. I would just like to extend my sincere thanks to you personally for your care and attention. It has proven difficult for me to find a doctor here that I could trust but that is now a thing of the past. I do hope I never have to call on your services again, but it is reassuring to know that should I need to seek medical advice, I now know how and where I can get the best possible care and attention.
Dr. Gilete operated on me last June for two lumbar herniated discs. Both the operation and the recovery were faster than I expected. In fact I very rapidly regained the strength I had lost in my leg and started walking. Now I walk between 4 and 5 Km without any problems! The pain in my leg and back has disappeared. We are very pleased with his professionalism and the treatment received by Dr Gilete. As for the facilities we would have nothing to say because they are known for the quality they offer. Without a doubt we would definitely recommend Dr. Gilete.
In February 2017 I had craniocervical fusion with Dr. Gilete and Dr. Oliver at Teknon hospital. From the moment I became their patient they were very caring and respectful. Their knowledge as well as their compassion amazed me. I felt safe and very well cared for before the surgery, during surgery and recovery as well as afterwards. I trusted them with my life and if needed I would do it again. I'm now slowly getting my life back from being mostly bed bound for several years. The pain is minimal and all previous symptoms caused by the instability are gone. I am forever grateful to Dr. Gilete and Dr. Oliver.
Dr Gilete, from the moment I made contact, had a reply so rapidly, I felt he was positive, trusting, professional, understanding, empathetic to my personal situation. I needed specialist surgery in a country that was not me own and he made it simple. Dr Gilete made me feel safe in Barcelona from the moment we met in person in our consultation, right through the operating stage and the final moment of discharge from Hospital. I have a genetic condition that affects the support to all of my joints, so it's safe to say I've seen a lot of Dr's over the years and had some major surgical procedures carried out. The best standard of care from start to end has to be from Dr Gilete and his team. I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat!
