Gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition: what makes us different?
We visit more than 10,000 patients a year, or approximately 40 a day .
We incorporate new technologies to care for our patients. Last year we conducted 1,532 telematic consultations.
Multidisciplinary approach to different diseases
At our clinic, 1 in 5 patients suffers from inflammatory bowel disease. We take a multidisciplinary approach in order to treat Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis. In addition to medical care, we consider nutritional, psycho-social and familial aspects. Through telephone and e-mail we are continually in contact with our patients in order to react quickly to a possible flare-up of a condition or other problems.
We have a special programme for the treatment of eating disorders in which the Psychiatry and Gastroenterology Departments work together closely.
We also perform global and comprehensive assessments of other conditions, such as metabolic disorders, motor disorders and familial and hereditary dyslipidaemia, etc.
Diagnostic tests adapted for children
The diagnostic techniques we use, including colonoscopy and endoscopy, are adapted for children, and we have professionals in anaesthesia who are qualified and have significant experience treating paediatric patients.
We often do lab tests to look for markers present in bodily fluids (blood, urine and faeces). In this way we avoid the use of more invasive testing.
