Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona




The Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona (ICSEB) belongs to the healthcare sector in a highly specialized area that deals with medical and surgical solutions that can help patients with diseases of the spine and brain.

ICSEB was founded with the objective of developing further the research and theoretical concepts established by Dr. Miguel B. Royo Salvador in the clinical field. The research and concept is concerned with the Filum Disease (FD), described so far to group together diseases of the same etiopathogenesis, such as Arnold Chiari I Syndrome, idiopathic Syringomyelia and idiopathic Scoliosis. Also, some other diseases that can be added to this group: basilar impression, increased cranial base angle or platybasia, Retroflexed Odontoid (RTO), kinking of the brainstem (KBS) and certain types of hydrocephalus.

The Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona (ICSEB) is located on Paseo Manuel Girona 32, in the Pedralbes neighbourhood of Barcelona, 08034, Catalonia, Spain. All clinical outpatient activities are performed at this address, while the complementary examinations and surgical activity take place at hospital CIMA, located only at a few meters distance at nº 32 of Paseo Manuel Girona.


Medical Surgical Team

The medical team of Dr. M. B. Royo Salvador, Director of ICSEB, is composed of neurosurgeons with expertise in the conditions related to the Filum Disease and the spine.

Since 2008, thousands of patients have been diagnosed of Arnold-Chiari I Syndrome, idiopathic Syringomyelia and idiopathic Scoliosis at ICSEB, while our centre’s exclusive method for the application of the most adequate and efficient treatment for each patient was outlined.

Our doctors are highly specialized in these conditions. They combine research and cutting-edge field experience in the application of our exclusive treatment, which eliminates the root cause and stops the progression of the disease with excellent results.


Research and development

ICSEB’s Research and Development (R & D) Department was officially established in 2014 as a result of the constant work that always accompanies the day-to-day clinical activities of the Institut.

Accredited by ACIE since 2011, the R & D department sets out research, publications and dissemination of the new clinical concepts that are applied at the ICSEB, to the entire international scientific community.

Given that the developments in any area of medicine require research that supports its growth and evolution, the activity of research and development in biomedicine is necessary for the success of any strategy that aims to improve the health of patients and increase the potential beneficiaries of these treatments.

Therefore, ICSEB is strongly committed to the integration of R & D on the clinical level with the objective of increasing the effectiveness of methods and knowledge of the factors related with the treatment of diseases associated with the Filum Terminale, increasing success rates and minimizing the risk of the surgery
