Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Orozco-Castillo "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.""
