The Surgery of Obesity

Bariatric surgery is the most effective mode of achieving long-term weight reduction and improving the health problems linked to this disease.

The Clinic, with a specialized team and over 20 years of experience, is an International Centre of Excellence in Obesity Surgery accredited by the International Federation for Bariatric Surgery (IFSO).

Liver transplantation

At the Clinic we are at the forefront of performing living-donor liver transplants in Spain.

We have achieved magnificent results; in particular, the percentage of patients who have successfully undergone the total removal of the tumour is one of the highest in the country, a survival rate of 90% in patients transferred from the liver one year after the operation and nearly 85% five years later.
