Hepatology

Hepatologia a Vall d'Hebron

At the Hepatology Department, we focus primarily on treating patients with liver disease, both those hospitalised on our ward and in outpatient care and interconsultations.

Description

Apart from treating patients with liver disease, at the Hepatology Department we treat internal medicine patients admitted to the Department and collaborate in their care at various other areas in the Hospital.

We also collaborate intensively in the Liver Transplant Programme, in conjunction with the Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery Department. We also treat hepatic patients with digestive bleeding in the Bleed Unit of the Digestive System Department, as well as checking on haemophilia patients with the Haemophilia Unit.
