Recerca en Columna Vertebral a Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca

The group’s main objective is to improve health-related quality of life (HRQL) in patients with spine disorders. This includes identifying the main parameters that influence HRQL and improving clinical results following surgery.


To achieve its aims, the group’s lines of research focus, on the one hand, on characterising and studying disorders such as adolescent idiopathic scoliosis, adult spinal column deformities, spinal tumours and fractures. It also identifies the risks in managing anaesthesia and complications surrounding complications as a result of complex spinal surgery, and looks into new therapies to combat spinal fusion, working with advanced cell therapy.
