El Dr Dexeus belongs to one of the most famous gynecological sagas worldwide, being his father, Dr. Santiago Dexeus, a pioneer in many fields of fertility and gynecology. He was the first doctor in Spain to achieve the birth of what are known as "test tube babies."
His grandfather the Dr. Santiago Dexeus Font founded the Mater Clinic, the first Spanish private maternity hospital, and in 1973 brothers Santiago and Josep María founded the well-known Dexeus Institute where they succeeded - until in 1973 he founded with his brother the Dexeus Institute where they stayed until 1990, at that time. During this period, milestones of Spanish medicine were achieved such as the first artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization as well as the first gynecological laparoscopy in Spain.
A family oriented and totally dedicated to the health and well-being of women throughout several generations. Dexeus It is synonymous with gynecology, excellence and care for women, a premise that has been followed by all members of this medical saga that has given the best gynecologists and that already belongs to the history of Barcelona and Spain.
Opportunity to be a student of your own father
Damián Dexeus is the fourth generation of gynecologists and following the family tradition came naturally to him. The Dexeus family maintains a special relationship with medicine and had the opportunity to have as a teacher a world specialist in gynecology and fertility, his father Dr. Dexeus, who is totally dedicated to his profession and to the well-being of women.
The Human Papilloma Virus
Damián Dexeus, also have a relevant scientific activity, such as the case of participation in the symposium organized by the Mayo Clinic (days after the celebration of International HPV Awareness Day), presenting a study on the treatment of injuries caused by the cervical infection of the Human Papilloma Virus.
In it he used a derivative of the "Colorius Versicolor". This derivative is a well-known product in traditional Chinese medicine, but without any tradition in Western medicine. The results show that the disappearance of HPV is achieved in half of the patients, while only 17% of the control group does.
For Dr. Dexeus, being a mother late is one of the most important and notorious problems in today's society. He does not hesitate to qualify this situation as "unfair", since for the doctor it makes all the sense in the world that women want to delay being their motherhood
He also has a concern for premature babies. He states that the vast majority of risks are related to the neurological and pulmonary development of the newborn, if it is possible to endure until the 34th week, there is much less probability that newborns suffer this type of problems. Dexeus firmly states that the first hours of life are decisive and that without there is no cerebral hemorrhage between the first 24 hours and the first 3 days, the prognosis is much more positive.
Another of the prestigious gynecologist's statements is that little ones can suffer retinopathy caused by mechanical ventilation and that statistics indicate that between 15 and 20% of newborns with extreme prematurity do not have sequelae of the elderly. Spain is one of the countries with one of the highest rates in premature babies.
For Dr. Dexeus, this fact can be explained by different factors:
- For the improvement of the evaluation methods,
- Increasing maternal age and underlying maternal health problems such as diabetes and hypertension,
- Greater use of assisted reproductive treatments, which lead to a higher rate of multiple pregnancies and also changes in obstetric practices (increase in caesarean sections performed before the pregnancy reaches term) Treatment of uterine fibroids
It is essential that the treatment of fibroids is individualized and adjusted to the circumstances and priorities of each patient.
In the case of malignant pathologies, the Director of Womens CD affirms that for cancer to be cured it is essential to carry out an early diagnosis and that this necessarily happens because patients consult their doctors more often. that cancer can be cured with an early diagnosis, since nowadays surgical techniques are very advanced and treatments are designed to the millimeter, achieving a great improvement in prognoses.
It also highlights the importance of consulting with your doctors at the slightest indication of a problem and thus being able to adhere to the different prevention programs for each case. The Barcelona clinic team is clearly committed to a medicine with preventive strategies that allow an early diagnosis to be reached, aspiring to cure cancer or, failing that, to make it chronic.
