Dr. Rodriguez and his direct staff are amazing. I have Thoracic Outlet Syndrome and had to have my first rib removed. That type of surgery could go bad in sooooo many ways. I have full use of my arm back and my life has been changed. Thank you so much doc.


Dr. Rodriguez-Lopez saved my life 11/1/2013 when my aorta ruptured and I was helicoptered to Phoenix from Prescott. Operation took less than 2 hours and caused me no pain. When Cook Medical patented a new type of stent for aortas that are larger than average, I had a second surgery 6/1 2016 to place the stent plus 7 others (renal, iliac). I was released to go home 24 hours after the surgery that took 5 hours. No after effects on either surgery.
