The Hospiten Group incorporates Dr. Pedro Cabrera Castillo, a urologist experienced in cancer treatment and minimally invasive surgery, as head of the Urology Service in Tenerife. With this prestigious incorporation, the healthcare group reinforces its portfolio of services for complete and comprehensive care, for both male and female health.

Dr. Cabrera Castillo is a pioneer in the application of laparo-endoscopic single site (LESS) surgery techniques, using a transumbilical approach which allows scar-free surgery. When made through the navel, the small umbilical incision becomes invisible within a few weeks. It is an innovative surgical procedure in which Dr. Cabrera is one of the most experienced at an international level.

In particular, he is highly recognized in cancer treatments, including cancer of the bladder, prostate, testicle, kidney and penis, and is actively involved in the development of new techniques and treatments in minimally invasive urologic surgery.

With more than ten years in practice, having completed his residency and advanced training in urology at La Paz University Hospital in Madrid and as head of the Laparoscopic and Minimally Invasive Surgery Unit at Getafe University Hospital, he has extensive clinical experience in the comprehensive treatment of the most complex urological problems.

He has also been awarded numerous academic awards and has been invited to perform surgeries broadcast in real time in Spain and abroad and to give lectures on single-port prostatectomy and kidney surgery. In addition, his teaching and research work is noteworthy with the publication of numerous research papers, textbook chapters, and video presentations in the field of single-port urologic and laparoscopic surgery.

Hospiten welcomes this specialist who has come to reinforce a wide portfolio of highly prestigious services and specialists available to patients who choose and trust the Hospiten Group.
