General Info

About me

Since I was a child I dreamed of becoming a doctor, once I achieved this dream the area in which I wanted to specialize was very clear. I try to put myself in the shoes of each patient in order to have the best results and reach the highest level of quality of life and satisfaction.
Gynecology and Obstetrics brings together the best of two worlds, the medical part and control of each patient and their follow-up but also the surgical part that allows solving many of these problems. As a subspecialist in Gynecological Oncology I have the objective of being able to help my patients even more in the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of gynecological cancer.
