Oncology and Haematology: specialties


We treat all childhood cancers


We perform a molecular evaluation of the tumour to determine if it requires aggressive post-surgery treatment. We are one of the centres in Europe to apply anti-GD2 immunotheraphy.


We apply localised chemotherapy to the tumour by means of intra-arterial chemotherapy. We are the only centre which can offer intra vitreous therapy with virus in a clinical trial.

Musculoskeletal tumours

We apply reconstruction techniques to the affected limb, with bone material from patients themselves or from a donor, to avoid amputation.

Brain and spinal cord tumours

We apply treatments in line with the most advanced chemotherapy and radiotherapy strategies. We have created our own treatment for patients with spinal gliomas.


We treat uncommon haematological diseases


Our patients are offered the most innovative treatments. We are the Spanish hospital which treats most cases of paediatric leukaemia.

We have a unit specialised in childhood bone marrow failure. We have the latest generation diagnostic techniques and we participate in trials for advanced therapies.
