Dr. Javier Nadal Pereña is a renowned doctor specialized in Assisted Reproduction and human infertility, born in Barcelona with more than 35 years of experience and who has delivered more than 10,000 healthy children.
Those who know him describe him as a cheerful person, funny, good conversationalist, generous, passionate about travel and new experiences and above all, a lover of life and medicine.
When you have him in front of you, he is one of those people who transmits experience, serenity and self-confidence; as much by his warm voice and approachability, as by his intense gaze, or the elegant rhythm of how he moves his precious hands.
After studying medicine and graduating in gynecology and obstetrics at the Hospital de Sant Pau in Barcelona and after several residencies at the GBMC Hospital (Great Baltimore Medical Center) in the city of Baltimore in Maryland, he co-founded the first private center in Spain for Oocyte Donation.

What is FIV BARCELONA?
FIV BARCELONA is a private institution dedicated to help any couple or single woman who has any kind of reproductive problem. Since its opening, our goal is to facilitate and help achieve the dream of being parents to anyone who needs it.
In addition to Assisted Reproduction, in FIV BARCELONA we provide the latest treatments to improve the health and quality of life of women suffering from endometriosis and we are one of the only two centers in Spain experts in treating uterine fibroids with radiofrequency. In this case, thanks to our revolutionary treatment, we can reduce and even eliminate the majority of fibroids (by ultrasound, without surgery or admission to the clinic, only with sedation and rest in a day hospital), taking into account that, currently, between 50 and 60% of all women in the world suffer from this symptomatology.
What is the best thing about living in Barcelona?
Its climate, its interest in culture and its very high level of medical science, which has made Barcelona a world reference.
What is your favorite corner of the city?
Undoubtedly the Gothic Quarter and the sea.
And your favorite restaurant?
My favorite restaurant is the Bonanova Restaurant. But I also really like Vivanda with its magnificent terrace and its new Gourmet take-away space Va de Cuina located in the Sarrià neighborhood.
And if you've never been to Barcelona, what can't you miss?
I would say stroll through the Gothic Quarter, go to see the sea and, of course, visit three of Gaudí's great architectural works: La Pedrera, Casa Batlló and the Sagrada Familia. And if you have days to spare, visit Sitges (a seaside village 30 minutes by car or train from Barcelona).
Then your favorite plan is...
Stroll through the Gothic Quarter and enjoy all the small local stores around, have an aperitif at the legendary La Pineda delicatessen, continue the walk until you reach the Olympic port and then go to the Carballeira Restaurant, to eat a delicious "arroz a banda".
