Thoracic Surgery in Mexicali, Baja California


As most readers know, Thoracic surgery is my absolute passion – and it’s a big part of my day-to-day life, too.. So, it was a great pleasure to spend this morning talking to Dr. Carlos Cesar Ochoa Gaxiola, here in Mexicali.

Dr. Ochoa is one of those surgeons that make this project so worthwhile.  He is enthusiastic, and enjoys what he does.  Talking with young surgeons like Dr. Ochoa seems to restore my faith in the future – which is desperately needed sometimes after reading (and reporting) all of the negative headlines regarding the health care crisis; shortages of vital medications (and surgeons!), escalating and out-of-control costs, fraudulent practices and patient mistreatment.

For more on this morning’s interview, see my sister site, www.cirugiadetorax.org

He kindly extended an invitation to visit the operating room, and see more about his practice – so I’ll give a full report on my next visit to this city.

In the meantime, I am enjoying the mild (and sunny) winter weather.
