Rafael A Lugo MD
I am a Board Certified General surgeon with many years of experience in a large number of procedures. I have been blessed with a very busy practice and extensive experience in many different procedures. I also have a passion for minimally invasive procedures and robotic surgery. I am very involved in the general wellbeing of my patients and interested in physical fitness and nutrition as well in the healing process. I believe that our bodies act as a fine machine and we need to take care of every aspect in order to have optimal results in surgery and recovery.

Fantastic surgeon. Caring and talented. Impeccable care, respected by his peers and unparalleled ethics. If he can't take care of your problem, he will find someone who can.

This was very helpful. Thanks! Trying to tie in nanoknife/insurance/FDA approval for soft tissue tumors. Answer will happen at radiologists appointment rather than online. Bye!
Thanks for your quick reply! Where can I find a hospital that deal with this diagnose? What about any surgery? In albania they don't do it. Thank you for reply.
Thanks, will continue looking... (and since you asked, WRT GERD my manometry, 24h pH, 2x EGD & chest x-ray all normal & no response to lots of PPIs)
