Migrated herniated disc/ lumbar discectomy
 Following a flight from Calgary to Puerto Vallarta the first week of November 2015, I had low back pain, initially treated with muscle relaxants. Two days later this became intense sciatic pain in the upper left leg. The sciatic pain became incapacitating and did not respond to strong analgesics. I was fortunate to be seen promptly by Dr. Robles. An MRI showed disc herniation at L3-4, a disc fragment had extruded and migrated into the spinal column causing nerve root compression. Narcotics and rest did not help the excruciating pain and I also had weakness of the left leg. Dr. Robles took much time with me to discuss my condition, options and surgery. I decided to have emergency surgery performed by Dr. Robles in Puerto Vallarta, rather than take a Medivac plane back to my home country. I was in no condition to travel and wanted to prevent further nerve damage. Surgery was performed on December 01.  When I awoke, I was free of pain! The  hospital care was excellent The caring professional staff, prompt medical attention and excellent meals supported my recovery. I was discharged December 3 and recovered to 80% capacity over the next two weeks, needing only minimal pain medication.

Complete recovery took about one year to be free of all symptoms. Since then my back has been better than ever! I was shortly back on my bicycle at 80 years of age and doing 30 Km. I owe a great debt of gratitude to Dr. Robles.

Subdural hematoma/craniotomy

  Katherine had a fall on February 16,2018. She suffered a subdural hematoma and was unconscious when transferred to the hospital by ambulance. She was put into a induced coma and Dr. Robles and his team performed brain surgery. She was in the coma for six days and was then transferred by Medi-Vac to a hospital in Vancouver,Canada. She was discharged from the hospital on April 6, 2018.She is home now and she is recovering well and living a normal life. Had it not been for the superb treatment by Dr. Robles and his supportingteam, she probably have died that day. Words cannot adequately describe the depth of our gratitude, but is heartfelt.

We love Mexico and Puerto Vallarta and looking forward to returning to Puerto Vallarta in February,2019.

Thanks again, you are wonderful people.

Severe head injury

During my show act at the downhill bike event “Downtown Puerto Vallarta 2017” I had a major accident and hit a concrete balcony with my head. Even though I was wearing a special downhill full face visor helmet and other protections, the high speed and direct impact led to a coma from which nobody knew if I would ever be able to wake again. The next day after the injury, the brain inflammation severely increased, reaching levels of very high intracranial pressure. Dr. Robles performed an urgent decompressive craniectomy to relieve the high pressure in the brain. During the first days my Austrian doctors here in Europe were very, very anxious, but the professionalism and outstanding skills Dr. Robles showed, put them as much as rest as possible in such a critical situation. After ten days of outstanding treatment and stabilization measures, I was able to be transferred by air ambulance to a special clinic here in Austria. The Austrian doctors were extremely content with the treatment I received in Mexico and praised the team’s skills. Their common résumé was simple: Dr. Robles saved my life, full stop!

After a year of very hard work with significant ups and downs during the rehab, I can finally say, thanks to the immediate and flawless treatment of Dr Robles and his team, I achieved the best possible recovery. He more than just “saved my life”, he made sure I had a chance to get back to a life that is still worth living. Words are powerless to express my gratitude!”

Brain tumor – Meningioma

Several years ago I started having convulsions and weakness of the right side of my body. Dr. Robles detected a brain tumor compatible with meningioma. Several days later I underwent surgery in which the tumor was completely removed. Thanks to Dr. Robles and his team, my life returned to normal ¡

Brain trauma/brain surgery

 

 Whilst on holiday in Nuevo Vallarta, I was involved in an accident whereby a roof tile fell from a 7 storey building and impacted with my head. The tile penetrated the skull and a piece lodged approximately 5cm inside my brain. I presented with slurred speech and loss of feeling to my left hand side. I required immediate surgery to remove the embedded piece of tile.

Dr. Luis Robles performed an urgent craniotomy and debridement. He and his team oversaw my post operative recovery in the following weeks, which included physiotherapy, before I was allowed to return home to the UK. I have made a near full recovery.The care I received from Dr Robles and the team at the  hospital was fantastic. I cannot thank Dr Robles and his team enough for what they did for me. Without their skill and care I would not be here today, now with two beautiful children.

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

During several months I was suffering from progressive memory loss and increased confusion associated with important difficulty to walk. After performing a spinal tap to remove cerebrospinal fluid, Dr. Luis Robles determined that I was suffering from NPH and surgery was necessary to insert a  pressure valve in my brain on 1 August 2017.The procedure was very successful and, thanks to Dr. Robles, I am now leading an essentially normal life again.
