From: Chorley, Lancashire England
Diagnosis: Brain trauma/brain surgery
Whilst on holiday in Nuevo Vallarta, I was involved in an accident whereby a roof tile fell from a 7 story 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.
