Urology

Urologia a Vall d'Hebron
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.

Description

The Urology Department is a reference centre in complex pathologies for Catalonia and the rest of Spain. Headed since 2003 by Dr Juan Morote, the Unit’s aim is to integrate care, teaching and research.

Research 

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.

 

Teaching

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.
