Paediatric Surgery

Paediatric surgery is the only medical speciality exclusively dedicated to diagnosis, treatment, and post-operative care for problems which occur during the life stage between the foetal period and adolescence and which need to be treated surgically. The surgical pathologies, physiology, doctor-patient relationship, and needs of the paediatric patient are very different from those of an adult. Due to the complexity of the pathologies treated and the special needs of the paediatric patient, this type of surgery is usually restricted to tertiary centres.

The Vall d'Hebron University Hospital has been designated as an ERN in Hereditary and congenital diseases by the European Commission.
