Dr. Castro brings extensive experience to the practice, having treated a variety of disorders of the spine in both adults and children. Trained in the latest surgical techniques, including minimally invasive surgery and disc replacement, he most recently spent more than 20 years in Denver, Colorado, where he built one of the busiest spine practices in the area and was selected as one of Denver’s “Top Docs.”
