Dr. Gueider Salas, Neurosurgeon

Dr. Salas is a preeminent young Bolivian neurosurgeon who has already had a long career leading the way in his field in his country. Soon after completing medical school and his specialization in neurosurgery, which included studies in Sucre and La Paz, Bolivia, Mexico City, Mexico, and Brussels, Belgium, Dr. Salas was introduced to Solidarity Bridge missioners participating in one of the first neurosurgery mission trips in Bolivia. Dr. Salas immediately recognized the opportunity opened by Solidarity Bridge to bring training in the latest surgical techniques to the country, and he has been instrumental in those efforts ever since.
