Spanish, Catalan, English and French

I am a specialist in pediatric arrhythmias, family cardiology and sudden death at the Cardiology Department of the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, as a member of the Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology Unit. For a number of years I was an attending physician in congenital heart diseases at the Hôpital Necker Enfants Malades and at the Hospital Européen George Pompidou, in Paris. I have also worked at the General Hospital of Catalonia, the Sant Bernabé Hospital in Berga, and at the Sports Cardiology Group of FC Barcelona. I am a member of a number of different associations, including the Association for European Pediatric Cardiology (AEPC), where I have been a member of the scientific committee and training committee, and of the Spanish Pediatric Cardiology Society. I am also a lecturer in Sports Medicine at the Sant Cugat High-Performance Centre (CAR)-University of Barcelona at the University of Girona, at the Pompeu Fabra University, at the Université Paris Descartes in Paris and at the Université de Montréal (Canada). My goal is to make my patients' lives as normal as possible, whatever illness they could have.
