London, England, December 6th 2013




An event was held on Friday December 6th at which neurosurgeon Alfredo Quinones-Hinojosa was presented to the most prominent members of the British community. Each year in Mexico the surgeon performs operations which very few others are able to carry out successfully, owing to their extreme complexity, which save the lives of those requiring urgent attention, including those from indigenous communities.


Dr. Quinones, who emigrated with his family to the United States at a young age, due to his outstanding academic aptitude he stood out throughout his childhood, and with the help of scholarships he is now recognised on an international level as not only one of the most talented Harvard graduates in his field, but also for his exemplary role at the prestigious John Hopkins hospital and above all his altruistic and selfless spirit towards fellow Mexicans.


In order to support the financing of urgent surgeries performed each year at the civil hospital of Guadalajara, Mexico, the sponsoring organization English Royal China Round Table (RCRT) contributed an array of Mexican dishes to the fundraising event.
