Experimental surgery

The Experimental Surgery group is a multidisciplinary group made up of professionals from the fields of surgery, anaesthesia, veterinary medicine, technical research and management who work to develop research projects in surgical pathology, either by designing experimental models with large animals (pigs) to facilitate translational research, or by participating in multicentre clinical trials to innovate and improve clinical outcomes, and to maintain continuous training in diagnostic and surgical techniques for professionals in health and animal sciences, through hybrid simulation.

The research of the experimental surgery group is mainly carried out at the facilities of the CREBAd Centre of the IRBLleida in Torrelameu, which has the necessary infrastructure to obtain experimental models in pigs, which allow, in the long run, to extrapolate the findings of the research lines to human clinical practice.
