About the hospital

Newcastle Freeman Hospital is a leading multidisciplinary medical center in the UK. The clinic was founded in 1977, and since then, it has become one of the leading scientific centers in the country in the development and testing of the latest treatment methods.

Doctors work closely with Newcastle University and Northumbria University to train new medical staff and share knowledge with the academic team. As a result, the medical attendants have often been awarded for outstanding achievements and discoveries, including international awards for the Queen's birthday and the 2020 "Golden Telescope" from the British association of urological surgeons. In addition, Myeloma UK CSEP accreditation demonstrates the gold benchmark of myeloma supervision.

The hospital became the only one in the government that offers complex cardiothoracic surgery to patients of any age in a unique narrow-profile center. Cardiac surgeons were the first in Great Britain to use transcatheter strengthening of the ventricles. The technique is a minimally invasive procedure that stitches together scar tissue after a heart attack. As a result, patients have reduced the likelihood of heart failure in the future. In addition, cardiologists are the only ones on the planet with a revolutionary 3D scan that can diagnose coronary heart conditions in just 20 minutes using an HeartFlow Analysis. In addition, doctors under one roof offer adult heart, lung, liver, kidney, and pancreas transplants with the highest national success rate. An interesting fact is that the pediatricians of the Newcastle Freeman Clinic were the first to perform a heart transplant on a child and are also pioneers in Europe in lung transplantation. The liver transplant service in Newcastle has performed over 1,000 successful liver transplants. Advances in surgical treatment have also been achieved through using multiple robotics, including DaVinci and remote telerobotic surgery from Intuitive. Conducting an operation from anywhere in the world is unique for global medicine. Also, the oncology direction is of advanced importance for the country, mainly represented by the planning of cure according to the "Brainlab Elements" system in the case of numerous metastases in the brain. Radiation therapy also includes one of the very first TomoTherapy® machines.
