Clinical Interest for Patients
I trained in Pediatrics, Pediatric Cardiology and Intensive Care, and have more than 20 years of experience as an attending physician. Over the last two decades I have developed an expertise in the management of medical and surgical (pre and post-operative) cardiac patients, from neonates to adults with congenital cardiac diseases.
I strive to promote quality, safety and interdisciplinary practices and optimal communication between patients, their families and our staff.
I have been involved in humanitarian work for more than two decades and I am currently the President of Surgeons of Hope, a United Nations-affiliated Non-Governmental Organization based in New York and in charge of developing programs of pediatric cardiology and cardiac surgery in Latin America. My ultimate goal in the mid term is to implement and consolidate a Central American Network of Pediatric Cardiac Care.
