Saint Agnes Hospital’s Jesus Esquivel, M.D. Inducted Into Mexican Academy of Surgery.
Saint Agnes Hospital is pleased to announce Dr. Jesus Esquivel’s induction into the prestigious Mexican Academy of Surgery. Dr. Esquivel’s is one of only 400 doctors world-wide to be invited to take part in the academy’s membership structure, which unifies physicians who have made significant scientific contributions to the practice of surgery, and who remain committed to humanitarian efforts to improve the quality of medical and patient care offerings in Mexico.

Dr. Esquivel obtained his medical degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas in Mexico, before relocating to the United States to complete a surgical internship at Washington Hospital Center and a general surgery residency at The New York Hospital of Queens, where he later became Chief Surgical Resident. Before joining Saint Agnes Hospital’s medical staff in 2004, he worked as an attending, general and oncology surgeon for Kaiser Permanente in Washington D.C., serving as the national referral for all patients in the U.S. with peritoneal surface malignancies.
Dr. Esquivel currently serves as President of the American Society for Peritoneal Surface Malignancies. Additionally, he is an assistant professor of gynecologic oncology at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and an adjunct member for the U.S. Military Cancer Institute.
