I just found out my favorite surgeon in the world is leaving our community. I wanted to leave this review before he moves on to his new position in Wisconsin. The man completely changed my view of surgeons, and his work with UTSW changed my view of hospitals as well - in addition to saving my life. We have nothing but exemplary things to say about Dr. De Hoyos and his complete staff at UT Southwestern. We wish him all the best success, and immense gratitude for all the work he did for me in rapid succession in order to treat my diagnosis before the lung cancer spread. It was 41 days from initial diagnosis at Baylor, to release from the UTSW hospital after my lobectomy. We were thinking this would take months to years in order to be cured or at least better, and he completely blew that timeline out of the water. I was back to work within the month after my lobectomy, which I attribute to his incredible skills in the operating room. Thank you so much.
