It counts with a multidisciplinary team of experts in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract.

Our goal is to ensure that the diagnosis is carefully established and the treatment plan is tailored to each patient.

We have an Endoscopy Unit equipped with the latest technology and professionals with broad experience in performing endoscopic diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.

To this end, in addition to providing care, the specialists are committed to continuous training and research in order to improve their knowledge and be able to offer the most appropriate and innovative procedures.

Endoscopy
Unit

Aimed at the diagnosis and treatment of pathologies associated with the digestive system, we have extensive experience in endoscopic techniques for exploring the digestive tract.

We are pioneers in the use of certain procedures such as the application of CO2 in the performance of colonoscopy.

High Risk Digestive Tumour Prevention and Consultation Unit

Our goal is to determine the risk of contracting the tumoural disease in families of patients, as well as to ensure the appropriate follow-up to prevent them from suffering from it.

By means of genetic studies, we can treat the patient in a personalised manner and foresee the risk of illness for him/her and his/her family members.
