Pneumology

"The cost of early detection programmes with a chest CT would not be excessive for society, given that early treatment of lung cancer is much cheaper than in its advanced stages".

DR. LUIS SEIJO MACEIRAS
DIRECTOR. LUNG CANCER AREA

The Pneumology Department has more than 15 years of experience in smoking cessation and early detection of lung cancer programmes.

Trained in leading centres around the world, including centres in the United States, our specialists have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of all respiratory diseases, both common and less frequent.

These include lung nodule management, interstitial lung disease and advanced diagnostic endoscopic techniques. Furthermore, in a multidisciplinary way, they are part of the Sports Medicine Area.

Medical care is linked to the work of the Nursing team, which administers the necessary care, monitors and assesses the evolution of the patients in order to provide maximum quality.

We are pioneers in the early detection of lung cancer, as a result of various research projects. Thus, research and teaching are the other two pillars.
