Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital
Comprehensive and multidisciplinary treatment
The aim of the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital is to achieve the highest level of independence, functional capacity and quality of life for patients. To achieve this, the medical centre offers specialised surgical and rehabilitation care. In addition, our medical team is made up of specialists in orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery, rehabilitation, neurosurgery, anaesthesiology and intensive care medicine, as well as nursing teams and healthcare technicians specialised in caring for these patients.
In the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital complex processes such as spinal cord injuries, multiple traumas, craniocephalic trauma or spina bifida are treated with a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach. The work carried out in this field of knowledge puts the hospital at the top of spinal cord injury and trauma in Catalonia.
A specialised severe burns unit
The Vall d’Hebron Burns Unit has extensive experience in treating severe burns. It also supports the care of burns patients in other centres. The telemedicine project particularly stands out in this area, assessing and monitoring burns patients remotely. The Hospital’s daily work in the care and treatment of severe burns has made them a CSUR (Centres, Services and Units of Reference) in Spain and Andorra.

Vall d’Hebron University Hospital was the first in Catalonia to take donors and the first transplant coordinator in the country. The centre’s current Donation and Transplant Program coordinator, Dr. Teresa Pont remembers this time, highlighting the pioneering role Vall d’Hebron has had in this field.
Vall d’Hebron University Hospital never closes. A big part of the credit goes to staff in the Maintenance and Works Department. Eduardo Martínez is the night shift A manager and he is responsible for ensuring that the work does not stop when the sun goes down.
Vall d’Hebron is a pioneering centre in caring for patients with rehabilitation needs. The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department, now run by Dr. Ampar Cuxart, has become a point of reference, but at the beginning it was very different, as one of its first heads, Dr. Joan Plaja, recalls.
Vall d'Hebron University Hospital is a centre of reference in treating patients with trauma. One of the people who has managed to achieved this accolade is Dr. Antonio Navarro, former director of the Rehabilitation and Traumatology Hospital, who explains the evolution over the last few decades in this video.
