Dr. Gilete began his career as a Neurosurgeon after attending the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Barcelona, working together with some of the most renowned surgeons in Barcelona and Europe. As a neurosurgeon he became very intrigued once Medical Tourism started emerging in Barcelona as a new form of aiding more and more patients that couldn’t find an adequate or efficient treatment in their home country. Without too much effort, he was quickly recognized among his surgeon colleagues as an experienced Medical Doctor that could facilitate potential international patients in need of innovative and unique surgeries that could be performed in Barcelona. For that reason, he decided to co-found Barcelona Spine Center and later the Barcelona International Surgical Institute – BISI, developing a unique niche in Neurosurgery and Spine Surgery within the medical tourism environment in Barcelona.
With Dr. Gilete’s exclusive professional background, he is considered as one of Barcelona’s highly experienced professionals in Spine Surgery  & Neurosurgery, as well as medical device design and its development. He is inventor of several patents in the neurosurgical field. He is currently developing a neurosurgical laser project.

In my many years of practicing medicine and operating on many complex serious cases, he has  been introduced to a group of patients in Europe who suffer from what is known as connective tissue disorders, such as Ehler-Danlos Syndrome (EDS), Marfans and others. Our Team are Europe’s surgeons to offer lifesaving and improvement to quality of life with personal evaluation and surgical solutions to address these cases.

He realized that developing his activities in providing health solutions for individuals has become much more meaningful than ever. International patients looking for medical or surgical solutions can reach out to Dr. Gilete and count on him to advise them on the best results available for their health conditions.
