Specialized Medical Units

Who we are?

CPEN SL was founded 25 years ago with the intention of offering comprehensive care and excellence in the field of Endocrinology and Nutrition.

Currently we are 28 professionals, distributed in 4 medical centers and organized in a multidisciplinary way (endocrinologists, pediatricians,
nutritionists, diabetes educators, psychologists, physical preparers and sonographers) to attend all stages of life, attending more than 4000 visits per month.

Linked to several universities and with a teaching vocation, we try to be in the front line in research projects, especially in the non-invasive treatments of thyroid nodules and also in the area of Obesity and Nutrition, becoming the first private management unit accredited by EASO in Catalonia.

My first endocrinology book

Mònica Peitx, MD is a paediatrician specialized in Endocrinology and Nutrition. In 2008 he wrote her first short story aimed at overweight and obese children: The Tale of Max. It was followed by The tale of aina, about Diabetes, and The tale of quim, which talks about height. With “Mia grows up” Dr. Peitx changes gears and instead of talking about another medical disorder she writes about a physiological and fascinating process: feminine puberty; and has won the Crítica Serra D’Or, 2017 and Jaume Aiguader i Miró awards for the dissemination of healthy habits, knowledge and education, 2017.
