Graduated from the University of São Paulo (USP), the doctor received the title of citizen of Mato Grosso, from the Legislative Assembly of Mato Grosso (ALMT) in 2013. The neurologist started his activities at Santa Casa de Araçatuba, in March 1971, where he stayed until April 1972.

He moved to Cuiabá in 1985, where he started to work at Santa Casa, in pavilions B and C, in addition to serving private clients. “I brought the microsurgical techniques to Cuiabá and, since its arrival, performed hundreds of microsurgeries to clip aneurysms and remove brain tumors”, said an excerpt from the ALMT justification for the title of citizen.
