Preventive Digestive Medicine Unit

The Preventive Digestive Medicine Unit provides personalised, specialised, scientifically proven care for all conditions involving the digestive tract and connected organs (gastroenterology), liver (hepatology), and pancreas (pancreatology).

Our aim is to carry out digestive tract studies using the best and most suitable technology with the aim of preventing digestive illnesses in both people who have symptoms and people who do not.

The Preventive Digestive Medicine Unit specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of digestive cancer, primarily colorectal cancer, and the associated syndromes (groups of symptoms that occur together), such as: burning, chest pain, dyspepsia, diarrhoea or constipation, gastrointestinal bleeding, hypertransaminemia and jaundice, pancreatitis, and more.
