I am a paediatrician at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital since 2004. I am a doctor of Medicine and Surgery at the University of Zaragoza. I specialised in Paediatrics and Specific Areas at the Hospital Miguel Servet, Zaragoza. I have a Master's degree in Paediatric and Adolescent Nutrition and Diet Therapy from the University of Zaragoza and a Master's degree in Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Paediatric Nutrition from the University of Barcelona. I am an expert in performing and interpreting diagnostic-therapeutic endoscopic tests and techniques. I have been coordinating our Paediatric Inflammatory Bowel Disease Unit (UCIEII-P) since 2008, an illness to which I have devoted the majority of my healthcare activity. "I love to enjoy the mountains with my family, in both summer and winter. I relax by skiing alone with my mp3 device".
