STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES

  • In-depth study of cardiovascular risk, hormonal, metabolic, and nutritional disorders (associated hypogonadism, bone metabolism, vitamins, and trace elements) that are associated with severe obesity and its resolution and/or evolution after metabolic/bariatric surgery.
  • To investigate new aspects of artificial nutrition in oncological patients with intestinal insufficiency, especially in tumors of the digestive tract or tumors with an impact on it.
  • To define strategies for optimizing the use of both enteral and parenteral artificial nutrition in the treatment of malnutrition associated with disease in the hospital context, especially in the oncological and surgical patient.
  • To improve the development and evolution of cancer surgery techniques, esophageal-gastric motility, and functional techniques, as well as innovative surgical approaches (laparoscopy, robotics, etc.).

RESEARCH LINES

  • Metabolic surgery on obesity-associated comorbidities.
  • Malnutrition and nutritional support.
  • Oncological and non-oncological digestive surgery.
