Pere Virgili Major Outpatient Surgery and Rehabilitation Centre

We promote day surgery as it is an increasingly common alternative to traditional hospital admissions and is more convenient for patients. The facilities, technology and running of the whole centre are focused on maximising this kind of walk-in surgery.

Vall d’Hebron’s Day Surgery Unit (UCSI), currently situated in the Pere Virgili Major Outpatient Surgery and Rehabilitation Centre, offers an alternative to the usual hospital admissions process. The 2,330 m2 Unit boasts the latest cutting edge technology, and facilities designed specifically with ambulatory surgery in mind. The centre has 6 operating rooms, 3 surgeon’s offices and 4 outpatient rooms for nursing, anaesthesia and surgical specialities. The unit currently performs over 13,700 procedures a year.

Whilst always under supervision, all patients can return home to continue their recovery a few hours after treatment. This surgery service is focused on convenience for patients, so they can recover in their normal environment without having to be admitted to hospital.

The surgical teams at the Day Surgery Unit come from other departments and units at Vall d’Hebron. Ambulatory surgery related to various parts of the Hospital is currently carried out here, such as General and Digestive Surgery, Maxillofacial Surgery, Dermatology, Ophthalmology, Otolaryngology, Urology and Vascular Surgery from the General Hospital; Orthopaedic foot, ankle, hand, shoulder and knee surgery, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital; and Gynaecological Surgery, Fertility and Breast Disorder Surgery from the Maternity and Children’s Hospital.

The Day Surgery Unit also actively participates in specialised medical training through the Resident Medical Intern (MIR) programme in the different surgical specialisations.
