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.
Desensitisation is one of the treatments available for inducing temporary or permanent tolerance by repeatedly administering to patients repeated doses of the allergen causing them problems. It is a commonly used procedure for treating allergies to some medications and foods.
Desensitisation consists of administering, under controlled conditions, increasing doses of the allergen the patient is sensitised to, to make them tolerant of the medication or food that causes them problems.
This usually induces temporary tolerance, which means the patient can receive treatments they were originally allergic to, instead of having to take less effective alternatives. In the case of foods, patients may become completely tolerant to them or gain some protection against accidental ingestion of the allergen.
Patients undergo desensitisation treatment under the care of an allergist, at the hospital.
There is a risk of allergic reactions during the procedure.
