Dr. Guerrero I highly recommend to anyone needing surgery. When I went to Dr. Guerrero for my hernia, interestingly someone missed the hernia on my CT scan. She took the time to review my CT scan again and there is was, plain as day. I’ve been in pain for the last 3 months. 2 other doctors that I see found my hernia just by feeling area. I trust Dr. Guerrero, she took the time to review what was missed then examined where my pain was. She is explained what type of hernia I have and also explained how the surgery was going to be done. Fantastic doctors!

External Professional Relationships

Pharmaceutical, device, and biotechnology companies frequently collaborate with basic scientists and physicians within an academic medical center to help advance science and improve patient care. These relationships are important in achieving scientific breakthroughs and in establishing the effectiveness and safety of promising new therapies. In order to assure objectivity in clinical research and patient care, the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine (Feinberg), Northwestern Memorial HealthCare, Children's Hospital of Chicago Medical Center, and the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab have adopted integrity policies that require research and clinical faculty (in full-time, part-time, and unpaid/voluntary categories) to report compensated and uncompensated external industry relationships. Patients are encouraged to discuss these disclosures with their physician as well as to inquire as to how these relationships are overseen by Feinberg.
