From a young age I always leaned towards the area of medicine. I studied at the University of Costa Rica and after receiving my MD degree, I decided to leave the country to look for options to specialize. I became interested in America as it has a fairly complete and always at the forefront of technology and medical education university system.
I wanted to train as Anesthesiologist in this educational system. During the Anesthesiology Residency I became very interested in a sub-specialty in Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology. Which I did after finishing a formal fellowship in Pain Medicine at Jackson Memorial Medical Center, University of Miami. With over ten year´s experience, dedicating 100 % interventional pain management I have gained extensive experience in invasive procedures for the management of acute and chronic pain. Among these are, blocks or epidural injections for back pain, nerve blocks for pain , minimally invasive surgery for herniated disc implants intrathecal morphine pumps and spinal cord stimulators , Trigeminal Ganglion blockade , cancer pain , etc .
