Our Services:

The Galveston Bay Area has lacked the expertise of a surgeon certified by the American Board of Colon & Rectal Surgery.

Our ColoRectal Service has been developed in response to an increasing public need for information, support and treatment in a subspecialty of surgery that is not conveniently available to most communities.

We treat patients with disorders of the anus, rectum, colon and small bowel including:

  • Anorectal problems including Abscess, Fistulae, Fissures, Hemorrhoids (Piles) and Warts (Condyloma)
  •  
  • Repair of complex problems/complications resulting from earlier ano/rectal surgery
  •  
  • Colon/Rectal Cancer screening using Colonoscopy, Fecal Occult Blood Test (checking for hidden blood in the stool) and advanced radiological imaging
  •  
  • Genetic testing for Lynch and Hereditary Polyposis Syndromes
  •  
  • Large Bowel (Colon/Rectal) Cancer surgery, including both advanced tumors and pre-malignant lesions such as polyps.  Laparoscopic bowel resections are performed using single, mini incision techniques on selected patients.  Dr. Aquino will be shortly offering robotic colon/rectal resections when indicated.
  • Female perineal conditions such as Bowel Incontinence, Rectal Prolapse and Rectocele
  •  
  • Non-malignant disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Diverticular Disease, Diarrhea and Constipation
