Hepatology

Hepatologia a Vall d'Hebron

At the Hepatology Department, we focus primarily on treating patients with liver disease, both those hospitalised on our ward and in outpatient care and interconsultations.

Description

In addition to treating patients with liver diseases, the Hepatology Service also collaborates intensively in the liver transplant program together with the Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery and the Digestive System Transplant Services. Moreover, we collaborate with the Gastrointestinal Unit of the Digestive System Service in taking care of hepatic patients with gastrointestinal bleeding, and in the control of haemophilic patients from the Haemophilic Unit.
