This post is long overdue since I interviewed Dr. Jose Juan Durazo Madrid, MD, FACS almost two weeks ago – but as readers know, things have gotten pretty busy lately. I’ve seen Dr. Jose Juan Durazo a couple times since the initial interview – but alas! I still haven’t talked my way into his operating room.
Dr. Durazo, who is a fellow in the American College of Surgeons is a primarily Spanish-Speaking general surgeon specializing in gastroenterology (endoscopy, and capsule endoscopy) and general surgery procedures such as cholecystectomies, appendectomies, hemorrhoid surgery and Nissen fundaplication for GERD. H also performs surgery for cancers of the GI tract. He performs bariatric surgery but reports that this is only a small portion of his practice.
Dr. Durazo has been a surgeon for 22 years. After attending UABC (Universidad Autonoma Baja California) here in Mexicali, he completed his general surgery residency in Hermosillo, Sonora.
He now serves as a professor of surgery for his alma mater, in addition to his private practice. He primarily operates at Hispano – Americano, Hospital Almater, Hospital Quirugico de la Valle, and IMSS (government facility.)
Hopefully, I’ll be reporting back from the operating room one of these days.
