Dr. Rafael Navarro, medical director of IMO Grupo Miranza Barcelona

20 de September de 2022

Dr. Borja Corcóstegui, until now Medical Director of our clinic in Barcelona, has handed over the medical direction to his colleague, Dr. Rafael Navarro, thus giving way to the new generations.

The change is a point and a continuation in the career of Dr. Corcóstegui, who will continue to be linked to IMO Grupo Miranza, where he will continue to work as an ophthalmologist, as well as holding the presidency of the Fundación IMO.

Here are the details.

Objective: to lead the ophthalmology of the future

In recent years, Dr. Navarro has taken on coordinating functions at the Barcelona headquarters of our clinic, culminating in his appointment as medical director.

For his part, Dr. Corcóstegui emphasizes “his involvement, as well as his leadership, decision-making and management skills. He also has a professional track record that endorses him at all levels”.

Likewise, this replacement comes at a time when the foundations are being laid for future therapies that will provide a solution to eye diseases, many of which are hereditary and currently untreated. For this reason, Dr. Navarro’s daily practice has always been characterized by combining clinical practice with research.

We want to be at the forefront of ophthalmology and lead research in this field, with the ultimate goal of improving people’s vision and eye health.
