Dr. Juan M. Montero, II came to the United States in 1966 to pursue postgraduate training in general and non-cardiac thoracic surgery; of which specialties he practiced for 35 years in Hampton Roads area of Virginia. He and his wife, Mary are blessed with four sons--two physicians, a lawyer and a chef-restaurateur and seven wonderful grandchildren.

After 30 years span of volunteering in rural, urban and international settings, he finally found his niche,i.e. to reverse the brain drain which occurred in the 60's and 70's when the United States openly welcomed physicians from all over the world. Through Montero Medical Missions, it is hoped that these expatriate physicians will now have a ready vehicle for volunteerism to give back to their respective homelands and in so doing, create sustainable healthcare projects.
