Rheumatology: what makes us different

Our experience, the size of our team, our research lines and clinical trials, in which our Paediatric Rheumatology Unit participates, allow us to comprehensively meet the needs of our patients and their families.

We offer multidisciplinary care

We lead a specialised care team in which different professionals work together. This ensures a coordinated response and minimises the number of hospital visits.

We have a transition unit

Our goal is to prepare adolescents to increase their autonomy in self-care and to live with the disease in adult life.

We are at the forefront of community-based care

We usually work in such way that patients and their families feel looked after and have direct communication channels with professionals. Appointments can be booked electronically through the online Patient Portal and we conduct consultations by phone.

We use technology for consultation and diagnosis

Performing our activities in a highly specialised paediatric hospital gives us access to the best tools. We have state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging equipment adapted to a paediatric setting.

We are committed to research

Research is fundamental for progress, which is why we are participating in more than 20 clinical trials and multiple research projects of our own or in collaboration with other premier national and international centres.
