Dr. Q on the right track to cure brain cancer

By Dania Vargas Austryjak

Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa: A renowned Mexican physician.

Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa is a noted neurosurgeon, professor and researcher who began his career jumping on to the USA from Mexico! He literally jumped the border fence when he was young, which was the definitive moment that led him towards the successful man he currently is.

Dr. Q, as he is known in the US, is a Mexican-born physician, who had quite a difficult life that turned out to be remarkable. As a young man, after crossing the Mexican-American border, he started working in the fields in the San Joaquin Valley in the state of California; years later he enrolled in community college, then onto the University of California and finally acquiring a full scholarship at Harvard Medical School.

Today, Dr. Quiñones-Hinojosa is a professor of Neurosurgery and Oncology, Director of the Neurosurgical Pituitary Center, both at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine; he is also the Clinical Director of the Brain Tumor Surgery Program at The Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital. All of this, in addition to his everyday labor: operating and saving the lives of hundreds of patients, performing 250 brain surgeries a year, which means over 2,000 surgeries throughout his entire career.

When Dr. Q is not in a class room, or in the operating room, he is most likely to be working on the research lab trying to find a way to cure cancer. His work involves a theory where natural stem cells in the brain could be put in a precise spot where the cancerous cells could stop spreading. There is still a lot of work to be done, but Dr. Q is confident this research would be revolutionary in the brain cancer field.

On top of that, Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa better known as Dr. Q, participates together with his patients in half marathons and races in order to raise money to fight brain cancer; also one of his patients holds annual fund-raisers to collect money for his research.

Dr. Quiñones-Hinojosa is proud of his Mexican roots and he sometimes goes back to his country of origin to give out conferences and speeches to motivate people, and show them there are ways to make it to the top, and it doesn’t matter where you come from, you can fulfill your dreams.

A kind, approachable, inventive, and driven man who has reached recognition for his hard work and helping hands, and we just hope his research pays off and leads to curing cancer.
