After finishing my medical studies at the Pontifical University in Medellín, Colombia, I continued my internship at Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital in the United States.

I then moved to Spain, where I successfully completed my five-year residency in Orthopedic Surgery through the official “MIR” program, at Barcelona’s Consorci Sanitari de l’Anoia.

Besides that, I went through various external services in renowned hospitals, as well as specific training courses, both practical and surgical.
