We are the combination of four hospitals: the General Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital. We are part of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus: a world-leading health park where healthcare plays a crucial role.
Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.
We will guide you from your first visit to the centre, allowing you to find all the departments and make the most of our facilities. Whatever the reason for your visit, we will explain how to get about the hospital.
The Abdominal Wall Surgery Unit is a part of the General Surgery Department and has a long tradition in this field. It deals with patients with generic pathologies and, above all, with complex wall pathologies, which is a field where many patients struggle to find an adequate solution to their problem when it is handled as a general surgery issue.
Vall d'Hebron University Hospital has a specific Unit in the field of abdominal wall surgery to help evolve from a specialist unit to a super-specialist unit. This evolution is due to the magnitude of the clinical-therapeutic information that is currently needed to treat general surgery and digestive tract patients in the most appropriate way. Abdominal wall surgery is fully defined and has its own section.
At our Unit, we offer the current forms of treatment used to tackle this pathology as well as lines of clinical research to constantly improve the treatment of these patients.
In terms of pre-clinical research, i.e. prior to studies with humans, our focus is on translational medicine (taking research from the laboratory to the patient), we have close links to the General Surgery Research Group and, in particular, with its Abdominal Wall Pathology Research Unit, led by Dr M. Antònia Arbós Via. Through this group, we aim to carry out pioneering research, both nationally and internationally.
Our Unit is structured at different levels, and can meet any and all needs thanks to this fusion of preclinical and clinical work.
