Surgery date: December 2013


Hello! Happy New Year! My name is Oleg, I am 36 years old, I live with my family in Almaty, Kazakhstan, and I would like to express my immense gratitude towards the Institut Chiari & Siringomielia & Escoliosis de Barcelona team for their work, especially Doctor Royo and Nina!

I had scoliosis since childhood. I practiced sports since I was little, I suffered traumas related to sport, or not, of different origin and kind. I didn’t do the military because of severe scoliosis. From the age of 20 I stared to notice the atrophy of the left hand, the thermal and tactile sensitivity disappeared, arm movements became more limited, and my strength slowly disappeared. Without paying any attention to the discomforts, I kept on living, thinking that the cause for all of this was the scoliosis.  At the age of 30, the hand became more atrophied, I had episodes of strong headaches, upper and lower backache, high blood pressure, a low defence index and I fell ill frequently. Together with all this, prompt fatigue, apathy and irritability appeared. The sport helped, my state got better for some time, but the hand kept on atrophying and loosing strength. The numbness of the leg started at the age of 35 years the headaches, upper and lower backaches increased. At the age of 36 years, in October 2013, at my mother’s indication (MANY THANKS TO HER), she is a high-ranking neuropathologist, I underwent the exams and was diagnosed with Arnold Chiari I and Idiopathic Syringomyelia. She found all the information about the treatment methods for these diseases worldwide, after discussions, consultations and the assessment of the information on the Internet, she told me about and insisted on the surgery at the Institut Chiari, Syringomyelia and Scoliosis of Barcelona (ICSEB). After Reading about the treatment methods and surgeries and the patient testimonials, I decided to undergo surgery.

On 17 December 2013 I underwent the Sectioning of the Filum Terminale surgery with the application of the Filum System®, with the diagnoses Arnold Chiari I Syndrome, idiopathic Syringomyelia and Idiopathic Scoliosis. I was surprised by the good reception and the team’s professionalism. I had never encountered such an excellent patient care. I am 100% certain that the surgery was performed on a very high professional level, and that it eliminated the cause of my suffering and stopped its further evolution. A new period of my life has started now, without fearing that the diseases could make me end up in a wheelchair. I am very happy to have met al Doctor Miguel B. Royo Salvador and his team!

I would like to tell everybody with these diseases about Dr. Royo and his team, their competence and excellent work!

Doctor Miguel B. Royo Salvador, I wish you and your colleagues a long life, happiness and prosperity, and that you will carry out your great plans to create an Academy for your method, so that people worldwide will be free of their diseases! A big thanks also to Nina and Doctor Marco Fiallos for their professionalism and good treatment!

I also want to say that I was able to combine the useful with the pleasant! It was my first visit to Spain, in Barcelona, and I was impressed by its originality, beauty and friendliness!
