The activity of the multidisciplinary team at this centre involves the use of low temperatures and their therapeutic benefits, in a process known as cryomedicine.  This aspect of medicine derives from one of the branches of biology known as cryobiology, a science which studies the effects of low temperatures on biological systems.


Basically, cryomedicine is the application of low temperatures to treat cancer and indirectly stimulate the patient's immune system in a natural way, as a preventative method against the recurrence of the illness.
