I completed my residency at Hospital Clínic Barcelona and decided to specialise in Paediatric Anaesthesiology. I have worked at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital since 1995. My passion is regional anaesthesia, also known as local anaesthesia. Within the hospital, we have promoted the use of ultrasounds for this kind of paediatric anaesthesia. I love my job.
