Assistant Professor, Anesthesiology
Clinical Interest for Patients
My many clinical interests include anesthesia for neurosurgical patients including surgery for Parkinson's disease. I also enjoy taking care of patient who need spine surgery and abdominal surgery.
I am a passionate person. When I am taking care of a patient, I devote all my care, senses, knowledge and compassion and respect to them. I treat my patients as if they were members of my own family.
I have two little kids, a girl and a boy, most of my time, when I am not working, is dedicated to enjoy them. I also enjoy doing Zumba.
I have had the opportunity of serving under privileged rural communities in my country Colombia. I also joined red cross for a medical mission in Colombia in 1999 after a earthquake devastated a whole State. I became an official Spanish medical interpreter for University of Colorado Hospital to be able to communicate with Spanish speaking only patients in a better way and to break the language barrier when they are approaching the operating room.
