Dr. Raul Ramos welcomes you to the Digestive Surgery Center in San Antonio, Texas, a highly experienced medical center for the prevention, treatment and cure of colon and rectal disorders.
With over 43 years of medical practice experience, Dr. Ramos is considered one of the top surgeons in the United States and Mexico specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the colon and rectum.
Being the fourth most common cancer in the United States, and the second leading cause of death, colorectal cancer is also one of the most preventable and curable cancer when early detected.
Colonoscopy is the prevention procedure that saves millions of lives each year. It is recommended to get the first colonoscopy done at age 50, and once very ten years. To schedule your colonoscopy today, please call us at 210-614-1600.
A PERSONAL NOTE FROM DR. RAMOS
"There's nothing more rewarding than saving lives. A screening made on time can save a life. Unfortunately, some people let fear and embarrassment invade their minds and do nothing to prevent colorectal cancer from invading their body, not being aware that a silent killer is hidden in their colon, sometimes not showing any symptom. A simple ambulatory procedure can detect and remove a polyp before it becomes a cancer with a 90% probability of success. So if you are over 50 years of age and you haven't been screened, I strongly recommend you to schedule a visit with me today by calling at 210-614-1600. Remember, don't let fear and embarrassment invade your mind before cancer invades your body. Believe me when I say that embarrassment kills."
