I have a Bachelor's degree in Medicine from the University of Extremadura, I am a Neurosurgery specialist and I have a Ph.D in Medicine from the University of Navarra. I have been working as a Neurosurgery specialist at SJD Barcelona Children’s Hospital since 2019. My clinical activity covers the different fields of pediatric neurosurgical disease, with a special interest and research role in the treatment of brain and spinal tumours in childhood and adolescence. I believe that constant updating, coupled with the latest technological innovations that we have at our disposal, allows us to offer our patients and their families high quality treatment, on both a physical and emotional level.
I like to spend my free time with my family, sharing trips and adventures. I enjoy reading, and I write for both young and older audiences alike.
