Sometimes research that we are going to perform will partly correspond to research that has already been performed in another hospital. Repetition of investigations may be necessary to confirm the extent of an anomaly and to better map out details. After a diagnosis is made, a treatment plan is proposed. Sometimes the treatments we propose can only be performed by our team due to the special nature of the procedure, such as with a liver transplant. In other situations, another hospital may be able to carry out treatment in the same way and you may be able to go back to a hospital in your area. This is done in close consultation with you and the specialists involved.
