Presenter Bio

Kenneth De Los Reyes is the third child of immigrant Filipino parents. Hegrew up in the heart of New York City in a middle working class family, where he was raised with traditional values of hardwork, humility, love and dedication. His mother, an accountant and nurse before he was born, raised her three children with his father who worked two full time jobs for more than 30 years. After graduating summa cum laude from the City College of New York and the NYU School of Medicine through the prestigious accelerated BS/MD program at the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, Dr. De Los Reyes moved on to the Mount Sinai School Of Medicine to complete his neurosurgery residency. During his elective time, he completed a Masters of Science in Clinical Research. It was at Mount Sinai, where, mentored by neurosurgeons Dr. Kalmon Post and Dr. Joshua Bederson, his passion for skull base and pituitary surgery began. He decided to continue his sub-specialty training under the well-renown pituitary surgeon, Dr. Edward Laws, at the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Harvard Medical School for 1 year. There he focused on endoscopic skull base and pituitary surgery. He then spent 1 year of sub-specialized fellowship training with Dr. Harry van Loveren at the University of South Florida in Tampa General Hospital in complex cranial and skull base surgery. Dr. De Los Reyes has been practicing at the Loma Linda University Medical Center, in Loma Linda California where he has directed the Center of Skull Base and Pituitary Surgery since 2014.
