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 Urology Department stands out for our use of the latest technology and hospital specialisation with our primary care techniques. The creation of fast stream to the Hospital, alongside protocols we share with primary care centres, mean our Department brings excellence, equity and efficiency to the public health system.
The Urology Department is a reference centre in complex pathologies for Catalonia and the rest of Spain. Headed since 2020 by Dr Enric Trilla, the Unit’s aim is to integrate care, teaching and research. Over recent years, we have incorporated the most modern, least invasive surgical techniques, such as laparoscopic surgery and robotics (Da Vinci).
Our Department comprises various different units each with their specialities.
Prostate Pathology Unit
Renal Pathology, Retroperineal and Kidney Transplant Unit
Urothelial Tumours Unit
Functional Vesicular Pathology and Neurourology
Over the last fifteen years, we have put significant efforts into translational research in order to apply knowledge gained from basic research to the prevention and treatment of clinical cases, within the framework of the Vall d'Hebron Research Institute (VHIR). This is why we have several research programmes of recognised international prestige. The result of this commitment to research is the transfer of knowledge in the form of publications and patents.
At the Urology Department, we are committed to training graduates and postgraduates from the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Barcelona, as well as training medical residents to be specialists in our field. Since 1973, we have trained more than sixty specialists, distributed throughout Spain and other countries.
