Specialties

Dr. Walter D Vazquez has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Surgery

    A pediatric surgeon is a qualified surgeon who has additional training in performing surgery on young patients, including fetuses (neonatal or fetal surgery), infants, children, adolescents and teenagers.
    Because pediatric patients are still growing and developing, they are often more difficult to operate on than adults. These patients have smaller bodies and smaller organs requiring even more of a precise and measured approach by a surgeon.
    Some of the conditions that may require the care of a pediatric surgeon are congenital malformations, such as cleft lip and palate, abdominal wall defects, like hernias, deformities of the chest wall, childhood tumors, like neuroblastomas and separation of conjoined twins.

Excellent pediatric surgeon

Dr. Vasquez operated on our 3 year old daughter who had a hernia. This is the most terrifying thing for a parent to have to go through but Dr. Vasquez and the team of nurses at Kaiser made it reassuring. I highly recommend this surgeon. I also highly recommend taking the pre-op tour that Kaiser offers. I believe it helped tremendously at easing not only our little ones fears but ours as well.

When only the very best will do.

A Doctor in Emergency at Kaiser discovered a large Tumor in our Sons chest and Dr Vazquez performed the Biopsy and the Surgery later to remove it. This was a major surgical procedure which took about 5 hours. My Wife and I could not have wished for our little Boy to be in better hands and although we were going through a very scary time we always felt that our Son was had the very best team available anywhere in the world taking care of him. In the end and much to our relief the Tumor was found to be benign but I cannot reckomend this Surgeon and his team highly enough, they get 11 out of 10 across the board.
