Dr. Aquino's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Aquino "Born and raised in Bangalore, South India, Marcus completed his basic surgical training in the United Kingdom before immigrating to the United States of America, where he underwent a 5 year General Surgery residency training in New York City. Following this, he completed a ColonRectal Surgery fellowship training program in Baltimore, Maryland and has subsequently established his practice in Houston since 1988. Dr. Aquino is certified by the American Boards of both (General) Surgery and ColonRectal Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the Royal College of Surgeons (Glasgow, UK) and the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. Most of his surgery is done in an outpatient setting as this has been shown to be both cost effective and well accepted by patients. Whenever possible, special long acting local anesthetic techniques are used to maximize patient comfort. Dr. Aquino has performed over 18,000 ColonRectal surgeries over the last 29 years. He places great emphasis on a personable relationship with his patients, often employing a tactful combination of humor and empathy. Marcus lives in La Porte / Shoreacres, by Galveston Bay and enjoys contract bridge, sailing, swimming, gardening and cooking Indian food in his spare time. He is an amateur architect, a classically trained pianist and is, on occasion, allowed to sing bass/baritone in his church choir."

I'm a cash paying patient and i came in to get my hernia fixed. I went in for my consultation and was scheduled very soon after for my surgery. It was very reasonable the price and I feel so much better now. Thanks Dr Aquino for giving me my life back.
