Had back surgery and he opened me up for my neurosurgeon. Neurosurgeon did wonderful but when Castaneda closed me up he left my stomach deformed then said I was just fat never checked on me. Will be filling a report to the state.

Highly Recommended Hernia Surgeon
Dr. Castaneda did a wonderful job laparoscopically repairing my husband's hernia. It was day surgery and the staff at Texas Health Resources (Harris Downtown) was very caring and competent. One of our specialist doctors chose Dr. Castaneda for his own hernia surgery. It has been a number of years since the procedure, and it was very successful.

Dr. Castaneda has repaired 3 hernias for me over the past 10 years. I am a complicated patient due to many past abdominal surgeries, but he is highly skilled and has taken great care of me. I enjoy his personality as a doctor and trust his decisions. The nursing staff at the hospitals where he has operated on me all rave about him as well, which is the highest praise. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Umbilical hernia surgery, open technique, July 31. Pre-surgery examination went great, surgery went great, recovery is easy. Dr. Castaneda is a cool guy who explains everything very well and is funny to boot. I highly recommend him.

The best doctor DFW and surrounding areas has to offer. He is caring, humble and great bedside manner. I felt that he wasn’t pushy and very honest about risks and complications of the surgery. His staff truly cares and when you say you are having surgery with him the people rave. Literally in the hospital from check in to check out I was told I was being taken care of by the best. So reassuring during a scary time. Would recommend him to anyone. Any bad ratings I would question the real story.

Dr. Castaneda did a hernia surgery on me back in 2014, unfortunately the incision came open and caused MAJOR problems. I developed fistulas, 7 holes in my stomach with 3 ostomy bags collecting my feces. I lived like this for the next 4 years of my life. Dr. Castaneda didn't want to try to help and for that I'm grateful because I wouldn't have found the BEST surgeon out there that FINALLY took care of all my medical needs. I WOULD NOT recommend this doctor for ANYTHING, horrible bedside manner.

Dr C performed my surgery in Dec 2016. I was naturally apprehensive but his staff was reassuring, the "check-in" staff at the hospital prior to reporting was even more assuring! The MOST assurance I received was from the medical and technical staff in the surgery prep area. It was crystal clear that they all had great professional respect for Dr C. The same can be said for the nursing team on the patient floor. After care and followup care has been excellent with my recovery above expectations.

I had emergency surgery that was not expected. Dr. Castaneda was awesome and very professional and great bedside manner. I am not hoping for any surgeries in the near future but would definitely use him again.
