Digestive Surgery Center at Stone Oaks Methodist Hospital

Welcome to the Digestive Surgery Center


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.


"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."


Saving lives through the prevention and cure of the diseases of the colon and rectum is our core mission.

The goal of Dr. Ramos and staff is to provide quality, comprehensive care to patients afflicted with problems of the colon and rectum. The patient is the focus for all decisions-medical and economical- because restoring and maintaining your health and well-being is our common goal.

In keeping with our mission of patient-centered care, at the Digestive Surgery Center we place prime importance on the physician-patient relationship. We encourage open communication about your medical care to allow changes and to improve results.

Being the third most common cancer in the United States, colorectal cancer is also one of the most preventable and curable cancers when early detected. 

Colorectal cancer can be prevented or even cured when detected at an early stage by doing simple ambulatory procedures which do not require hospitalization. Learn more.

Please be aware that only through preventive ambulatory checkouts Dr. Ramos can detect the existence of polyps, and therefore remove them before they become cancers. Do not hesitate to schedule an appointment today if you are 50 y.o. or older and you haven't been checked. Schedule an appointment by calling us at 210-614-1600.


Ambulatory procedures also known as outpatient procedures or same day medical procedures, are health care procedures not requiring an overnight hospital stay. 

Such procedures -including surgery- are commonly less complicated than those requiring hospitalization. Learn more.
