The unit of rare neuromuscular diseases of the Hospital La Fe of Valencia, which was already a national reference, has been one of the two units of this hospital also named now of European reference as centers of excellence in the treatment of these diseases. From Conquistando Escalones we are especially pleased that this unit is led by Dr. Juan Vílchez, leader of the medical alliance which seeks a cure for our 1F Limb-girdle Muscular Dystrophy and at the same time, to stop HIV.
This nomination as a European reference can be an advance in both the diagnosis and the treatment of diseases such as ours. As Dr. Vílchez said in an interview with Cadena Ser, it means “the possibility of collaborating and staying in contact with the main hospitals working in these specialties.” The constitution of these networks will allow “to establish a net, a connection between centers of very high qualification”. The connections for European programs that “will benefit us all”. With new techniques from the most advanced hospitals in Europe.
