In the case of varicose veins, he is an expert in the use of microfoam, endovascular laser and the latest of the techniques, cyanoacrylate (Venaseal), a glue that seals the vein allowing immediate recovery, with local anesthesia and without the need for wear compression stockings. In addition, he has proven experience in the use of other techniques such as radiofrequency, MOCA (mechano-chemical sclerosis) or varicose vein surgery using CHIVAS. His extensive experience in all these techniques is supported by the presentation of different communications and articles in scientific journals as well as by the continuous incorporation of the latest available treatments, thanks to his active participation in the congresses of the main scientific societies to which he belongs. both from Europe and the United States.


In the pathology of aneurysms of the aorta and peripheral arteries, he is a pioneer in the endovascular treatment of them using endoprosthesis, a surgery through minimal incisions that favors the early discharge of patients and reduces the risks of complications during and after of surgery. Specialization in cardiac and vascular surgery allows us to address complex cases that affect different locations of the aorta, through hybrid surgery, that is, both open and endovascular in the same surgical act.
