At present, there are more than 1.5 million head injuries a year, of which 1.3 million will leave aftereffects recorded in patients ranging from not being able to speak, walk, or see, as well as loss of independence. Of these cases, 52 percent are preventable and the remaining 48 percent are not. The good news is that the great majority can be avoided by exercising precaution and knowing what to do and whom to go see in case of cranial trauma.

Dr. Guerrrero will talk about what to do and what not to do after an incident of cranial trauma, and he will present his patient’s personal head trauma story of survival. Jhon Franfund, resident of San Miguel de Allende, will join us to discuss how he overcame a terrible and unfortunate assault in San Miguel, which resulted in a gunshot wound to the head.

Dr. Rodolfo Guerrero specializes in neurosurgery. He trained at the General Hospital of Mexico and obtained his degree at UNAM. He did a fellowship in cerebrovascular surgery in São Paulo, Brazil. He is certified by the Mexican Council of Neurological Surgery. Dr. Guerrero has published several scientific articles, including “The Estimated Time for Epilepsy Surgery of the Temporal Lobe.”
