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.
At the Paediatric Nephrology Department, we are specialised in studying and treating children with kidney disease to fulfil their physical, psychological, emotional and social development. The highly sophisticated level of technology at our practice, in conjunction with medical advances, means more and more children survive acute or chronic kidney disease.
Our Department is aimed at preventing kidney disease in children through early diagnosis, including prenatal diagnosis. In the case of children with chronic kidney disease in substitute treatment, we offer vital support with dialysis techniques. In the case of chronic terminal kidney disease, we offer kidney transplants as the best therapy.
Our team uses extracorporeal techniques, both in primary renal pathology and for preserving and prolonging the functionality of the kidney transplant (plasmapheresis, immunoabsorption, etc.).
We provide care and treatment for children with non-kidney pathologies with an impact on kidney function, especially in patients with chronic pathologies, such as solid organ transplants, bone marrow transplants and syndromes that affect the kidney, survivors of chemotherapy and nephrotoxicity.
Vall d'Hebron Hospital was the first centre in Spain to carry out a liver transplant in a child in 1985.
