    Walking Again

News > Walking Again

My name is Alejandro Esparza, I’m 31 and I livin in Corona California. One of my favorite pastimes was playing basketball with my friends, it's one of the things I enjoy doing the most. One day during a match I suffered an injury which turned to be a completely torn ligament. I was operated by doctors in the United States, but the results were not what I expected, after 2 surgeries I was still unable to walk correctly. An aunt who lives in Mexicali told me about Dr. Humberto Torres, so I took the decision to travel to Mexicali to meet him. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made

I must admit, at first I was not entirely sure of my decision to travel to Mexicali because in the United States for some reason people are kind of afraid to get medical assistance in Mexico. But as soon as I meet Dr. Humberto Torres I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Humberto Torres explained to me everything I needed to know about the surgery and the treatment that I would need in order to start walking again. I have to admit it; he made me feel confident just for looking at the board where he has all the international certifications and all the awards he has won so far. So I said, let’s do it!

My stay in Mexicali was amazing. The facilities of Dr. Humberto Torres were very comfortable, the staff was very friendly. I must confess that even though in Mexicali temperature is “a little bit higher” to which I am accustomed, the people made me feel just like home (they even let me change the room temperature to an almost freezing point). All and all, I truly appreciate the kindness of everyone

During the operation Dr. Humberto Torres, allowed me to see part of the procedure through a screen, which made me feel safer. After he finished, Dr. Torres asked me to stand up. For me it was too soon, but he insisted, so I did it. Last thing I remember I was right on my feet, up and walking. It was amazing! Now I can walk again, and if everything goes as planned, I will be playing basketball again in about 6 months. No wonder why Dr. Humberto Torres is recognized as one of the best orthopedic surgeons in Mexico, I am totally grateful to him and his staff. 

It was an excellent decision coming to Mexicali.
