Reconstructive surgery


After 11 years’ experience at the Burns Unit at the Vall d’Hebron Hospital, Dr Ruiz Castilla submitted her PhD thesis in pathologies of the burn patient in September 2018 entitled “The role of the IL33/ST2 axis in the burn patient”. She has acted as an expert disseminator, has been invited to teach at training events, and has published several scientific papers on burns.

Apart from the acute damage caused by burns, the aesthetic and functional alterations that can accompany them also need urgent attention. Dr Ruiz is an expert in repair surgery techniques for the treatment of burns.
