Hospital Clínic has a multidisciplinary team with expertise in pancreatic disease, including specialists in gastroenterology, endoscopy, radiology and pathological anatomy. It has an intensive care unit for severe cases. This core of work has advanced diagnostic and therapeutic technology for the care of patients with this disease.
Hospital Clínic is a reference area for the analysis of genetic factors associated with the development of pancreatitis. The Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics Service offers the possibility of studying mutations in susceptibility genes (CFTR, SPINK1 and PRSS1). A wider panel of genes is also covered by massive sequencing (Next Generation Sequencing).
