He has filled the role of Head of Neurosurgery at Hospitales San Roque, Spain and Director at ICN-Instituto Canario de Neurocirugia, Canary Islands and is extensively experienced and skilled in diagnosing a wide range of neurological conditions and performing surgery with minimally invasive techniques.

Additionally, he has multiple several visiting fellowships; Microsurgery in Zurich, Neuro-Intensive care in Lund University, Neuro-Oncology at Harvard University and Melbourne, and Vascular in Dallas. 

"I am very happy not note that the surgical procedure was very successful", said Dr Lourido.
