Overview

I pride myself for trying to give compassionate and highest quality professional medical care for all of my patients each day. I am proud to be from El Paso and am glad that I came back to my hometown to help the community. Every year I push myself to train and keep up with new and clinical worthwhile therapies for my patients. Our world's multimedia slams the public audience with vast amounts of \"new\" clinical therapies, medications and medical devices for their use. Unfortunately, many of these advertisements are not totally honest and the advertised medical benefits may not work for all people and in many cases, the older forms of the therapy are still safer. These past two decades we have seen medical advancements in new surgical technologies and therapies which allow patients to undergo surgeries with much faster recovery times. Robotic surgical techniques have greatly improved the patient outcomes in the fields of Urology and Neurosurgery especially. However, in other surgical fields Robotic surgical assisted cases have not shown such benefits for all patients. It is very important for the physician to thoroughly go over with each patient the related benefits and risks involved with all types of potential surgical methods that may be used for their planned surgeries. I specifically always try to minimize the use of surgery until all other forms of medical therapies have been tried first for my patients. I have always been a big supporter of trial of labors after a prior C-section (TOLAC) for my patients. Unfortunately, the hospitals have changed their policies on TOLAC/VBAC labors over the past 6 years. In order for a patient to undergo a trial of labor for a possible vaginal birth after a previous C-section (VBAC), the hospitals require that the patient be admitted to L&D early in her labor (before she passes 4cm dilated) and that she have continuous fetal monitoring while in labor. The hospitals also require that the patient's Obstetrician be in the hospital with her during the time she is in labor and they also prefer for safety concerns that the patient have an epidural anesthesia placed while she is in labor. All these policy concerns are useful and can easily be arranged to work for those patients who are truly \"Good\" Vbac candidates. Good candidates would be those women who are not having the same prenatal complications occurring that caused them to have their first C-sections in the past. For example, is the size of the baby the same or larger than her past child? Has the baby dropped into the pelvis yet? Is the fluid level normal? Is the cervix of the patient ripe for a vaginal delivery? As you can see, there are many variables that should be discussed and accounted for for each patient thinking of a Vbac delivery. The risks of a TOLAC to go bad are significant and can result in harm or death to the baby and also to the mother. Remember, my job is to give you healthy prenatal care and a safe healthy baby; not a vaginal birth only at the expense of your health and your baby's life. Vaginal births are only a short lived route to gain a beautiful new healthy member of your family, but don't let the simple fear of a needed C-Section stand in the way of having a fully healthy baby. I am looking forward to meeting you as a new patient and would be happy to discuss any questions on therapy, medication, or health concerns that you may have. After all, that is my job and I love doing it right for everyone. Thank you for visiting my site today.
