My introduction to medicine began with my father, Rudolfo Latorre, a family practice physician. On occasion, I would make rounds in the hospital and nursing home with him and observe how he connected with his patients. My father had a great bedside manner joking with the patients, but always knew when he needed to be more serious to deliver a message. It’s because of my father that I pursued a medical career and eventually became a board certified Otolaryngologist and Fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon. This has provided me the opportunity to positively affect the lives of many over the past 15 years.
Ultimately, I became interested in surgery, especially the head and neck, because of the challenging and intricate anatomy. Surgery is as much about knowledge and technique as finesse. You must have a command of the anatomy and surgery, but also the ability to think on your feet and have the finesse to make changes during the surgery that benefit the patient. Therefore, I chose to specialize in diseases of the sinuses, facial plastic reconstructive surgery and office-based procedures. I received my Doctor of Medicine from the University of Missouri-Columbia and later completed an Ear, Nose and Throat residency at Yale University. From there, I went on to complete my fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in the San Francisco Bay area and Indianapolis, Indiana. I was so inspired by my father’s passion for this field of work that I knew some day I would be following in his foot steps. In 2009, I was honored with the Patients’ Choice Award and am highly regarded by my patients for my bedside manner just like my father. My patients have peace of mind knowing that I participate in the Maxillofacial trauma team at Regional Medical Center-Baynonet Point and am affiliated with Morton Plant Mease-Northbay Hospital, Medical Center of Trinity and St. Joseph’s Hospital-North.
When I’m not in the office or operating room I love nothing more than spending my time off with my wife and 5 children. Whether we’re snow skiing in the mountains or just enjoying the few quiet times we have together, I’m a man that understands the importance of family.
