Recommended Neurosurgeon in Quito - Testimonials


“For the past 6 years, I suffered from left hemifacial spasm. I was treated with medicine and acupuncture without success until my neurologist referred me to neurosurgeon Dr. Duval Molina. After evaluating my problem, he recommended a surgical intervention to decompress the facial nerve. One month after the surgery, the spasm started to disappear and up to this day, I have not had any complications in four years.

I can confirm that the surgery was a success!”

¡Puedo afirmar que la cirugía fue todo éxito!”

“At the age of 50, having lived a normal life so far, I woke up one day to find myself having no feelings in my legs whatsoever. After consulting a large number of neurologists and traumatologists who could not diagnose my problem, I was fortunate to have a physiotherapist who recommended Dr. Duval Molina. He found that my problem was the dorsal part of my spine, which was affected by a mass. For this reason, Dr. Duval Molina suggested I would have an intervention. Twenty-four hours after the operation, I was able to lift my legs again. I could not be happier, especially when the doctor made me stand up. My life changed completely and for that I thank God and Dr. Duval Molina, an excellent neurosurgeon and spine surgeon.”A las 24 horas de mi operación pude levantar mis piernas nuevamente, ¡Mi felicidad fue enorme y aún más cuando el doctor me hizo poner de pie! Mi vida cambio totalmente y por eso agradezco a Dios y al Dr. Duval Molina un excelente neurocirujano y cirujano de columna."

“I was suffering from an intense pain in my T8 and T9 dorsal vertebrae that prevented me from carrying out my physical activities. I had been to many specialists before I finally went to Dr. Duval Molina who diagnosed me with a thoracic hernia. He scheduled the surgery and performed a discectomy. This was a very delicate surgery since the intercostal nerve was being compressed, which caused a really intense pain. The surgery was a complete success, immediately after the surgery I was able to walk, after 24 hours the pain had decreased 85% to 90%. Thanks to God, Dr. Duval Molina and his medical team!"

“I was diagnosed with herniated discs in the lumbar sacrum, which prevented me from carrying out my daily activities as I had lost strength in my lower limbs, even to the point of using a cane. In 2018 I met Dr. Duval Molina, who is a neurosurgeon specialized in spine in Mexico City. He recommended a minimally invasive tubular discectomy intervention. Two hours after the surgery I remember being able to walk without any problem and now I can perform all my daily activities without any problem. I am so grateful to Dr. Duval for his commendable management and intervention."

“ In 2016 I had a very severe epilepsy for which I had to seek the help of a neurologist. At that time, the exam results showed no abnormalities. Later, in 2020, I had another epileptic episode, this time to a lesser degree. This time, I was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, for which I was immediately referred to Dr. Duval Molina. I want to thank Dr. Duval for such an efficient operation, everything went great.”

“In January 2020 I underwent a surgery by Dr. Duval Molina Choez after he had diagnosed me with cervical hernias in the C4, C5 and C6 discs. I was suffering from headaches and tingling. After this surgical intervention, I now have a healthy life, for which I am very grateful to Dr. Duval Molina. I can testify that his operations are a success.”

“Dr. Duval Molina Choez removed two herniated discs I had been diagnosed with. Before the surgery, I was doing physical exercises with a lot of pain because the hernias were compressing the sciatic nerve. After the surgical intervention, I returned to my physical activities without any pain at all.”

The best professional neurosurgeon in Quito, Ecuador

Rated 5 out of 5

Dr. Duval Molina Choez and his wife, Dr. Kariam Choez are some of the finest professionals in their respective fields anyone would ever want to meet. I am a US Air Force Veteran and retired Department of Defense Civil Servant. While serving on active military service, I suffered a spinal injury (both lumbar and thoracic) for which I have suffered for years crippling my daily living functions coupled with moderate to extreme pain. I have visited and received many medical procedures (spinal injections and disc-ectomy, from doctors at VA medical facilities as well as many private health care providers.
Both Doctor Duval and his wife Kariam worked as a team to assess and diagnosis my medical condition and course for treatment. After a quick MRI, CAT scan, and X-ray work up and the doctors assembled an expert medical team and began the process of reading for surgery. Dr.Duval had his pain specialist/anesthesiologist get my pain under control. After surgery both doctors Duval and Kariam were at my beside making sure I was doing well. I felt as if my own family were with my wife and I caring for us every step of the way. The level of caregiver, expertise and medical professionalism was the best I had ever experienced to this day. I highly recommend Dr. Duval Molina Choez for anyone who may be in need of neurosurgeon treatment. “I am eternally grateful!”. Dios los bendiga!!
