Young Neurosurgeons' Committee Chair
I was born Argentina and came to Spain to train neurosurgery. After passing the national exam I was lucky enough to be accepted in 2004 by my mentor and teacher Prof. Urculo, a great neurosurgeon and human being. After him I first join the Spanish Society of Neurosurgery and then the EANS. I joined the EANS as a trainee in 2006 training course in Bratislava. I was amazed by the atmosphere of knowledge and friendship, the eager to learn, to teach, and to build bridges of collaboration in all participants. I knew that wanted to be part of this for the rest of my life as neurosurgeon. During my last EANS training course I contributed (together with other enthusiastic trainees) with the formation of EANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee. I got my full accreditation as Neurosurgeon in 2009. After that I resented my PhD thesis on Glioblastoma in 2010. Since then I work in San Sebastian, Spain and I like to consider my self as a general neurosurgeon with special interest in vascular, endoscopic skull base, and spine surgery. Currently I lead two main research projects; one on molecular biology of brain tumors, and the other on robotic spine surgery. I authored or coauthored more than 30 international scientific paper. I’m the author of a textbook on microvascular neurosurgery. I coauthored several book chapters. In 2017 I was elected chairman of EANS Young Neurosurgeons Committee.
