Paediatrics

We guarantee the comprehensive treatment of any disorder the child may present with up until the age of eighteen. We work with a highly specialized and multidisciplinary team

The Paediatric Department provides comprehensive care to complex patients, or those suffering from multiple conditions, which require a high level of care. To this end, we collaborate with all the Units and Departments in the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital. The department is made up of the Rheumatology, Pneumology, Infectious Diseases and Palliative Care Units.

The paediatrician acting as an integrating professional constitutes a significant advantage for the patient, making it possible to improve diagnosis and prognosis and reduce the number of readmissions for the chronically ill. It is with this comprehensive overview that we treat adopted children coming from other countries, with the aim of guaranteeing their good health. We also offer counselling sessions for children suffering from nocturnal enuresis (bed-wetting) and a Unit for sexual abuse in children. Our surgery is also attended by children who feel ill but have yet to be diagnosed.

What makes us different

  • Our experience. Each year we care for more than 15,000 patients in outpatient visits or hospital admissions, which amounts to 60 patients each day.
  • The closeness to all the specialists at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital.
  • An integrated vision for patients.
