Originally from Barcelona, he completed his university education in 2001 and, in 2004, left Spain for Switzerland where he was to undertake his surgical training. Former clinical director at the Hôpital de Nyon, and then subsequently head of the department for visceral surgery and transplantation before becoming head of the department for thoracic and endocrine surgery at the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève (HUG), he receives patients for consultations at his private practice at the Clinique de Genolier.
Following his move to the department for visceral surgery and transplantation at the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, Dr Vidal Fortuny has been a member of the team specializing in minimally invasive abdominal wall surgery and has contributed to its development.
During the last two years, spent in the department for thoracic and endocrinal surgery, he has trained in thyroid and parathyroid surgery and is developing new surgical procedures designed to improve the safety of operations.
He has two clearly defined fields of activity:
- General surgery: surface disorders (skin surgery and subdermal stage) and classical disorders, including those of the abdominal wall, such as hernias, and of the digestive tract: appendicitis, cancers, gastric reflux, diverticular disease, anal pathology, diseases of the gall bladder and varicose diseases of the lower limbs.
- Neck endocrine surgery: diseases of the thyroid and parathyroid, whether benign (representing the majority of cases) or malignant.
