Hepatology

"We do research in order to design new treatment strategies that will improve the survival and quality of life of our patients".

DR. BRUNO SANGRO
DIRECTOR. HEPATOLOGY UNIT

In the Hepatology Unit we boast over 30 years of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of liver diseases. We have all the possible diagnostic equipment, ranging from the latest imaging methods to the most advanced molecular and genetic techniques.

We are pioneers in the application of novel treatment techniques, such as gene therapy, immunotherapy or radioembolisation with Ytrium-90 microspheres.

In addition, we are at the forefront of minimally invasive liver surgery and living-donor liver transplantation.

Our nursing team is highly specialised in this field because of the varied and intense symptoms presented by liver patients.

We are part of the Liver and Pancreas Tumours Area, a multidisciplinary area that is exclusively dedicated to the comprehensive treatment of tumours of the liver, pancreas and bile duct.

Liver transplantation

At the Clinic we are at the forefront of performing living-donor liver transplants, using laparoscopic surgery to minimise the impact on the donor.

Radioembolization with microspheres

This technique allows the treatment of inoperable liver tumours by administering radiation directly to the tumour, respecting the healthy liver.
We are a benchmark centre at European level in the administration of this treatment with over 600 procedures performed.

Immunotherapy

We have different immunotherapy treatment options at our disposal, ranging from the use of reinforced own cells in the laboratory to the infusion of immunological checkpoints that boost the anti-tumour response.
