Dr. Cugat is a physician specializing in Traumatology, Arthroscopy and Orthopedic Surgery. He is one of the pioneers of Arthroscopic Surgery in Spain and Founder of the Spanish Society of Arthroscopy (AEA); for more than a decade he has been a pioneer with his team in the research and use of Platelet Rich Plasma PRP, obtaining excellent results that accelerate the healing of injuries.

His work in the Federation of Catalan Footballers has allowed him to see and treat thousands of injuries, more than 26,000 every year at the present time, and thus perfect the techniques used later in elite athletes, who rely on the hands of Dr Cugat for his high diagnostic accuracy and at the time of the intervention.
“From the early 1970s I started circling the world to learn and share information about Arthroscopy, Orthopedic Surgery, Traumatology and generally in Sports Medicine: United States, South America, Europe, Asia, Pacific, Australia… And I’m still doing it. I am passionate about providing my patients with everything I have learned in many countries, in many centers, in hundreds of hospitals, what they do, how they diagnose, how the arthroscopy technique is performed and I have also been able to teach hundreds of Surgeons around the world who have visited our Center and shared operating hours with us and then apply it in their home countries. My goal: to apply the best treatment for my patients. This constant work, being constantly alert and being up to date on new research and new techniques gives me great peace of mind, the certainty of constant advancement and that things we do are not routine. It’s about finding the best solution and excellence. I have had the opportunity to meet great teachers who I do not tire of thanking for their generosity in sharing their experience with me; for me in addition, the human aspect is the most important in the relationship with patients, it is fundamental and key to achieve a good diagnosis, then comes clinical examination and tests if necessary, or even surgery, but the first step to be able to help as a doctor is good communication, listening and understanding the problem of the person in front of you “
