I have been practicing Urology and Urologic Oncology for over 30 years. I moved from my home in Barcelona, Spain to the United State where I attended the University of Colorado’s School of medicine graduating with honors. I completed my residency and post-doctorate fellowship at the Baylor College of Medicine and took my medical acupuncture training at UCLA.
I created the HOPE Protocol by continuing the groundbreaking work of Dr. Charles Runels and Dr. George Hackett. I combined leading-edge injection techniques with hormone and neurotransmitter therapy to help the sufferers of a large number of chronic Urologic conditions, Interstitial Cystitis and CPPS in particular.
I am also an expert in prostate cancer with a special interest in active surveillance and minimally invasive treatments and I am a pioneer in the use of MRI fusion prostate biopsy. As an American Urological Association Foundation Scholar I researched genetic predisposition and the role of proto-oncogenes in the development of prostate cancer.
I am passionate about drastically improving lives of those suffering with chronic pelvic pain and helping men heal from prostate cancer and returning to health.
I am the co-author of Do You Have Prostate Cancer? A Compact Guide to Diagnosis and Health & Prostate Cancer: A New Approach to Treatment and Healing, as well as numerous articles for a number of medical journals. I am also a lecturer and public speaker.
I believe that medicine should be practiced on an individualized basis and I am committed to returning my patients back to health and helping them thrive.
