SPECIALIST IN NEUROSURGERY.

Dr. Gerardo López Flores

I  am a Medical Doctor with specialization in neurosurgery. In addition, I have a PhD in Medical Sciences, Summa Cum Laude and I have a Master in Radiation Oncology. Since 2020 I have been part of the Instituto Clavel, a center where I have found a great team of medical professionals, very dedicated both to their work and their patients. I hope to make my own contribution to consolidating Instituto Clavel’s leadership in neurosurgery, both nationally and internationally.
