Dr. Jesus Esquivel received his medical degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas in Mexico before completing his surgical internship at Washington Hospital Center. He finished his residency at the New York Hospital of Queens.

He worked in Washington with peritoneal mesothelioma surgeon Dr. Paul Sugarbaker before becoming a surgical oncologist at Beebe Healthcare in Delaware. Before that Esquivel was the director of the Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Program at St. Agnes Hospital in Baltimore.

In 2016, Esquivel joined Frederick Regional Health System in Maryland. He is also president and CEO of the Institute for Hyperthermic Regional Perfusions.

Esquivel traveled to Guadalajara, Mexico, five times in 2011 to teach and assist other surgeons in cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC. He has made the trip more than a dozen times in the past few years. He is also an adjunct member of the United States Military Cancer Institute.

His willingness to mentor and educate others in mesothelioma treatment led to a 2012 induction into the Mexican Academy of Surgery, an elite distinction that recognizes medical professionals for their humanitarian efforts in improving the quality of patient care in Mexico.
