About me

One of the main reasons is the physical study of the human being. It seems too interesting to be able to know my body and learn how everything works together, to understand the ailments, illnesses and other conditions that the human being can present throughout his life. Especially surgical procedures since it is the only surgical solution to surgical conditions. Another reason why I chose this race is because it seems to me that there is nothing else
It is gratifying to be able to help people with medicine, to be able to provide quality care and an excellent service; Another reason is that the knowledge acquired through the years of study is very large I chose this career because it is not like many that after certain years of study you no longer need to acquire more knowledge, while in medicine it is a career with a lot of dedication of effort that needs to be updated because there are daily advances in the field of medicine. With regard to surgical conditions it is very reasonable that the patient feels discomfort when talking about the word surgery, however a well-indicated surgical procedure and in the best conditions, can cure and improve the quality of life of our patient.
patient. Always putting our best knowledge of the condition beforehand.
