Get to Know Dr. Jesus Esquivel

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 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.
