Thoracic Surgery and Lung Transplants

I am a Thoracic Surgeon with special dedication to the treatment of lung cancer and minimally invasive techniques such as video-assisted thoracoscopy and robotic surgery. I am also a member of the lung transplant team and Associate Professor of the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.


I have a degree in Medicine from the Autonomous University of Barcelona. I made my training as a specialist in Thoracic Surgery in this hospital and since 2006 I work as an assistant physician of the department. I have a PhD in Surgery from the Autonomous University of Barcelona since 2007, with the Doctoral Thesis entitled "Mediastinal lymphadenectomy as a prognostic factor in small cell lung cancer." I have made several training stays to expand my knowledge of thoracic deformities at the Ricardo Gutiérrez Children's Hospital in Buenos Aires, and in the treatment of lung cancer at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. I started participating in university teaching in 2010, as a clinical associate professor at the Vall d 'Hebron Teaching Unit. Since 2015, I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. I have been co-author of several publications in biomedical journals and I have participated in several clinical trials related to lung cancer and lung transplantation.
