We will inform you in detail of Dr. Leidinger’s journey, to which we wish him all the strength and luck for this path.

We continue with the first Neurosurgical mission to the Consolata Hospital Mathari located in Nyeri (Kenya) after the stay of Dr. Fabio Spanu

It is composed by Dr. José Mª Torres Campa-Santamarina (Neurosurgeon and coordinator), Dr. Esperanza Arcas Navarrete (Neurosurgeon), Dr. Enrique Fernández Torres (Military Medical), and Ms. Laura García Rigueras (Nurse)
