About Us

Dr. Al Lopez provides answers to questions about surgery

We created this website with the intention of giving patients some insight into the surgical experience. Many, look at the prospects of surgery with great concern often because their questions are not answered. Fortunately, our writers have had the benefit of seeing all areas of the surgical process including Internal Medicine, Pulmonary, Critical Care, Anesthesia, Pain Medicine and Perioperative Nursing. With this experience, we are able to give you the information you need to make the informed decisions before, during and after surgery. We hope this will help you as you plan your next surgery.
