Dr. Alfredo Valencia, MD. PhD


Dr. Juan F. Martínez Canca

JJuan F. MARTÍNEZ-CANCA, MD, MRCS is a Doctor of Medicine and Surgery from the University of Malaga (Spain) since 1994 and trained as a Neurosurgery Specialist in London (UK) since 1996, where he obtained a national training post at the South Thames Deanery. He continued to work in the UK Public Health System (NHS) until 2012. He currently works as a private Neurosurgeon in Spain and in several hospitals in the Middle East, although he continues his professional collaboration with the British Health System on a regular basis at the University of Oxford as a Neurosurgeon at the John Radcliffe Hospital since 2013.

More about the DR

In addition to general neurosurgical practice in adult and paediatric neurosurgery (neuro-trauma, neuro-intensivism, spinal neurosurgery, neurovascular pathology and peripheral nerve pathology), his clinical and surgical experience is constantly updated through numerous international courses and workshops in practical and theoretical neurosurgery. His special interest within the speciality is the treatment of brain tumours and spinal cord tumours, as well as the management of head and brain trauma. 

In Spine Surgery, he has a long track record with a large number of interventions using dynamic and minimally invasive techniques. During the last five years he has consolidated a Pain Management Unit, where the combination of a holistic approach and electromagnetic technology applied to human physiology has obtained surprising results in the treatment of non-surgical sciatic pain, trigeminal neuralgia and refractory musculoskeletal pain. His most recent professional activity focuses on the use of Stem Cells applied in Neurosciences and the treatment of tumours by means of Electromodulated Oncological Hyperthermia.

Works and Activities

Chief Neurosurgeon at NeuroKonsilia® and NeuroKonsilia Medical Research Institute®, he is currently developing together with a team of pioneering scientists and specialists in Cellular Medicine an innovative line of research in autologous stem cell therapy (ASCT) applied to Neurosciences. 

He is also a consultant in Neuro-Oncological Hyperthermia and Plasma Regenerative Therapy (PAPIMI).

Founding partner of Neurobridge Consulting®, in parallel to his professional activity, he is a Holistic Medicine Specialist and co-founder of the International Holistic Therapy Centre (formerly known as Brain Respiration Centre®) based in London and Marbella, fully funded and sponsored by charitable contributions. 

This initiative is part of The Breathing Group Corporation©®.
