Every patient undergoes an exhaustive preoperative study involving different specialties so that when the time for surgery comes conditions are optimal.

In addition to surgery, the Pain Management Unit, for both acute and chronic postoperative pain and that of the cancer patient, offers the latest innovations in medical treatment and interventional techniques to give the patient the best possible quality of life.

In addition to surgery and pain management, the anesthesiology service is responsible for the sedation needed for certain tests - gastrointestinal endoscopy, radiology, PET, radiotherapy, hematology, etc.

The individual needs of each patient are attended in a personalized manner to achieve maximum comfort and the best possible quality of life for the patient.
