Dr. Cristobal Salgado Paredes has a specialty in Neurosurgery. He is the founder and medical director of NEUROURC, Brain Rescue Unit in Guatemala City since 2014. At his modern state-of-the-art clinic, Dr. Salgado and his team of multi-disciplinary specialists provide diagnosis and treatment of brain, spine, vascular and peripheral nervous system injuries. They offer minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic technologies to the highest quality standards, and then follow up with the care and therapy you need, to guide you to a healthy, successful outcome.
Beyond his diagnostic skills and superior surgical talent, Dr. Salgado knows that a full recovery is assured with the cooperation of a team: the neurologist, psychologist, and specialists in internal medicine, pain management, physical training, and speech therapy. All of these people are focused on giving excellent and innovative attention to your medical needs.
In 2012, Dr. Cristobal Salgado Paredes wrote protocol guidelines for the Pediatric Neurosurgery Department of Hospital Roosevelt in Guatemala City, regarding encephalitis, head and spine trauma, medulloblastoma, and spinal tumors in children, post-surgical nervous system infections, and emergency trauma. These manuals are still used today and are required reading for new surgery residents and hospital staff.
He is a highly-respected surgical associate at the best private hospitals in Guatemala City, as well as in professional neurosurgery societies throughout Latin America. Dr. Salgado is respected surgical associate at the following hospitals: Centros Hospitalarios La Paz, Sanatorio Nuestra Señora El Pilar, Centro Médico, Hospital Universitario Esperanza, Centro Médico Militar, Hospital Yarden, Hospittalia, Hospital Ambulatorio Multimédica, Hospital Los Angeles, Hospital Maranatha. En los departamentos: Centro Médico Chiquimula, Centro Médico Zacapa, Hospital El Carmen Puerto Barrios.
Dr. Salgado’s advice is: “If you feel symptoms that make you suspect that something is not right, like weakness in your extremities, loss of consciousness, dizziness, or altered speech, come in for an immediate consultation. We can detect any abnormalities the same day, provide early intervention, and avoid a situation that could be much more serious.”
Diagnostic exams are state of the art and performed at local hospitals, with results the next day.
NEUROURC is the only neurosurgery clinic in Guatemala offering minimally invasive neuro-endovascular applications for the treatment of cerebrovascular illness, tumors, and spinal column injuries. These procedures are more accurate and therefore reduce the chance of complications, so they are generally preferred over conventional open surgery with anesthesia. Having smaller incisions and less trauma, the patient enjoys faster healing, lower anxiety, and a shorter hospital stay.
You can trust Dr. Cristobal Salgado Paredes to be totally devoted to personalized patient care. He will be proactive in investigating the source of your neurological problem and make wise decisions based on scientific evidence and global protocols until they find the solution that is best for you. In case of emergency, like an accident or head trauma, you can reach Dr. Salgado at 502/ 3333-3024.
