About Jesus Alberto Castillo, DO

I went to medical school specifically to become an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I liked the idea of being able to help people get back to an active lifestyle, whether that was walking, cycling, playing tennis or golf. My approach to patient care is to treat patients like family. I want them to understand what is wrong and not only how I can help but also how they can help themselves. My clinical interests include orthopedic surgery with an emphasis on...
I went to medical school specifically to become an Orthopaedic Surgeon. I liked the idea of being able to help people get back to an active lifestyle, whether that was walking, cycling, playing tennis or golf. My approach to patient care is to treat patients like family. I want them to understand what is wrong and not only how I can help but also how they can help themselves. My clinical interests include orthopedic surgery with an emphasis on sports medicine including shoulder injuries, knee injuries and hip injuries. Outside of work, what I enjoy the most is spending time with my wife. Our son is away at college, so my wife and I just enjoy doing things together.
