Dr. Barragan is board certified by the American Board of Surgery in general surgery. Dr. Barragan is also fellowship trained in hand surgery and has received a certificate of added qualifications in surgery of the hand from the American Board of Surgery. After finishing his general surgery residency and hand fellowship, Dr. Barragan returned to Lubbock, TX to join SWAT Surgical Associates, L.L.P.
Some of the most common procedures he performs are open finger fracture, hand tendon laceration repair, nerve repair, carpal tunnel surgery, broken arm/hand/finger repair, ganglion cyst removal, trigger finger surgery, and many others. Because the overall well-being of his patients is his primary concern, Dr. Barragan firmly believes in trying non-operative measures whenever possible. When he is not caring for patients, he participates in triathlons and in his church.
Our surgical group continues to grow to meet the needs of our community in general, hand and weight-loss surgery.
