Located in the heart of scenic Seabrook, Texas, the practice welcomes patients from all parts of the Galveston Bay and Clear Lake areas. The practice’s physician, Marcus Aquino, MD, FACS, FASCRS, is one of only three board-certified colon and rectal surgeons in the entire Galveston Bay area.
We offer a full range of Colon, Rectal and Anal procedures along with high-quality inguinal (groin), umbilical (belly button), incisional, and colostomy hernia repair. Patients also regularly come to the office for diagnosis and treatment of anal fissures, fecal incontinence, hemorrhoids, irritable bowel syndrome, and other anal issues. Complex body wall hernia repairs using component separation
techniques are used when indicated. When requested, mesh free groin repair is offered as a very well tolerated and effective alternative to a mesh implant.
Advanced diagnostic testing, including colonoscopy, is performed to confirm or rule out certain conditions. When surgery is necessary, patients can undergo advanced minimally invasive surgery, utilizing state-of-the-art da Vinci® robotic and laparoscopic technology.
With affiliations at several premier Texas hospitals, including HCA Clear Lake Regional Medical Center in Webster, Houston Methodist Clear Lake Hospital in Nassau Bay, and Houston Methodist Baytown Hospital in Baytown, our patients are able to undergo complex, major procedures at conveniently located state-of-the-art facilities.

Schedule your colon/rectal cancer screening today
ColonRectal cancer screening costs are covered by Medicare and many commercial health plans. If you are at risk for ColonRectal cancer, make an appointment today to discuss which of the available procedures is best for you and how often you should be screened.
We offer Colonoscopy in our private operating room where cash paying patients or those with high deductibles can have their procedure for a fixed fee of $900/$1250 depending on whether a polypectomy/biopsy is done. This fee will cover the fees normally paid to the physician, anesthetist, pathologist and facility.
We offer genetic testing and counseling to patients with a family or personal history of colon polyps and cancers.The tests take the form of a simple "spit/saliva" test that uses the DNA from the cells inside the mouth. This is a convenient and painless way to obtain genetic material. We work closely with your insurance company to make sure that the tests are pre -approved, making your portion of the cost of the test as low as possible.
If not listed, your insurance plan may include out of network benefits/coverage; call us to help you negotiate with your plan for the coverage you are entitled to. If you are without insurance, call the office manager to discuss our reasonable cash fees. Our fees are very reasonable, and an "up-front, drive out" price for procedures done in our office surgery includes 3 months of postoperative care. Fees are collected in full, prior to the procedure.

Dr. Aquino and his staff took very good care of me from my initial visit through my release. I am glad I chose Dr. Aquino for my treatment.
I would rate Dr. Aquino's staff at his office among the best I have seen in my 78 years and they have been very friendly and professional during my total of three visits
An incredible medical experience...My definite impression is that his first and only concern is about the patients health.
I am so glad I was referred to Dr Aquino to help me stay healthy.. I highly recommend him.. from Texas Veteran
Marcus is a vary good surgeon I’ve had two procedures done by him excellent both times especially recovery time with minimal pain from hernia repair.
Dr. Aquino was personable..My surgery went well and the doctor and staff were attentive to my recovery needs. Good experience for an unpleasant medical issue!
I was treated with the utmost privacy, dignity and respect by their entire staff from the first day through post-procedure. I am very pleased
He is personal, relaxed but very knowledgeable, listens and then explains in laymen terms, never rushes us in or out
He makes me feel very comfortable no matter what part of me he is dealing with. I know that I can always count on him. He will never give up on a problem.
