We provide care, training and carry out research because you are our centre


Servei de Ginecologia a Vall d'Hebron

The main purpose of the Gynaecology Department is to offer constant, up-to-date expert service to all women in our area of influence. On the other hand, as are a level three hospital, we are leaders in high-level techniques and technologies.


Our Department is one of the finest in the country, especially for oncology, for cancer of the breast and lower female genitalia. These are complex pathologies whose treatment must take a multidisciplinary approach. Thanks to the support we receive from multiple specialists, we are proud to offer a high-quality service.

Coordinating with primary care services and providing comprehensive care from the very first point of contact are both essential aspects of the service. This is necessary for women of all ages, from paediatric gynaecology, paediatric endocrinology, gynaecological pathologies, pre-invasive lesions, which can be precursors to cancer, and malignant tumours in both the genitalia and the breast, menopause and post-menopausal pathologies.

Our overall objective is to provide care for patients in our area of influence, including gynaecological care, as well as training and healthcare prevention measures and, at the same time, we aim to become a Centre of Excellence for certain pathologies, such as high-complexity surgeries.

The specific objectives of the healthcare division are, firstly, to provide medical care as urgently as possible in presumably benign pathologies. For all patients with either presumptive or confirmed diagnosis of neoplasia (abnormal formation of a new tissue, benign or malignant tumour), both gynaecological and mammary, immediate care must be provided. Finally, we must review and produce protocols and clinical guides for all the most common pathologies.

In all cases, we aim to carry out surgical treatment of gynaecological and mammary neoplasms when indicated with as short a waiting time as possible between diagnosis, histology and surgery.
