What People Say About Dr. Ludwig Orozco-Castillo, MD

Dr. Orozco performed a 3-level, 360-degree lumbar fusion on me in Aug of 2018. That surgery was (and continues to be) one of the most painful and traumatic experiences of my life. My pain was never managed while I was hospitalized. I woke up from that surgery screaming. Dr. Orozco and his PA, Stephanie said they would adjust my medication but never did. I cried in pain through several nights and my nurses said there was nothing they could do because my doctor hadn’t changed my medication orders. (I’m a mom of two young children and married to a very loving husband...they’ve had to endure this trauma with me.) When I moved from Baylor Scott & White Lakepoint Hospital to a rehabilitation hospital a WEEK later, my pain was finally managed. It’s been a year since my surgery. I am now in more pain than before my surgery. Dr Orozco doesn’t believe I’m really in pain. That’s convenient for him. He has offered to put in a pain pump, but I’m very anxious to have any more procedures from him.

Dr. Orozco performed an L4/L5/S1 fusion on me. Dr. Orozco has a bedside manner that is second to none. His team at Texas Brain and Spine are superb. Dr. Orozco takes a very conservative and thorough approach to patient care. He does a great job of plainly explaining treatment options and possible risks. Being under the care of Dr. Orozco and the professionals that he trusts with patient referrals has profoundly altered my life in a positive way.

I went to Dr. Orozco for a microdiscectomy on my L4-L5 and at nearly 3 weeks my pain has gone from a medicated 5 to a unmedicated 1. It is still early in the recovery process for me, but I'm thrilled about the results so far. The wait time can run long, but is well worth it. He really listens and answers your questions thoroughly, which was very important to a first timer such as myself.

Got in in a timely fashion. Dr Orozco listens and explains anything you have a question about. He clearly explains treatment plan and choice if applicable. Pleasant. Staff is efficient at the appointment. It took several days for them to get back to me about scheduling tests but they do have to wait for insurance to get back to them first.

Dr. OROZCO IS AN AMAZING SURGEON, he performed surgery on me for a ruptured disk that was crushing my spinal cord. I came out of surgery walking with none of the painful siatica that I had prior to surgery. His staff was cordial and awsome. I already have recommended him to many people and will recommend him to everyone. Thank you Dr. OROZCO and staff for making my life better, sincerely, Kathy Ratliff

Dr. Orozco is an excellent physician. He saved my father's life after he suffered a subdural hematoma. He thought quickly and precisely when it was most needed. He is very compassionate, you can see that medicine is his passion. He was extremely kind and careful when we need it the most. Three months have passed and my father is doing better than ever! We can never thank him enough for literally bringing my father back to a happy life!

I have not had my surgery as of now, but so far my visits to Dr. Orozco's clinic have been favorable. The wait time to see DR Orozco is minimal, he goes over your treatment thoroughly and answers questions in an easy to understand language.

This was my first visit but I did find the staff very friendly and they worked quickly to schedule my appointment within the week. Dr Orozco was very kind and took the time to review my MRI with me so I could see what was causing my back and leg pain. He gave me options and choosing surgery I feel I am in capable hands. The nursing staff was very efficient and helpful. All together a good team.

How was your experience with Dr. Orozco-Castillo?

About Me

My approach to surgical intervention is to "proceed with caution". Surgery is an invasive endeavor, which should be addressed with mutual trust and respect between surgeon and patient. Therefore, when considering surgical treatment, conservative measures should have been exhausted prior to any surgical consideration."
