Dr. Gabriel Varela, neurosurgeon, moved his 18-year Guadalajara practice to Lake Chapala more than ten years ago. During this decade he has built a thriving local practice and sees more than 200 Lakeside patients a year. “I especially like living here so that I can be on hand to provide attention to my post-op patients and for emergencies,” he says.
Varela has scheduled a free informational overview of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease on Saturday, May 16, 11 a.m., in the gardens of the Casita Montana Wellness Center. Varela will provide information and discuss the latest research on how nutrition, physical and mental exercise help prevent and delay the disease.
