About Marco Vinicio Medina-Zea, MD, FACS, FASMBS

  • Dr. Medina is originally from “the middle of the world, Ecuador.” When he is not working, Dr. Medina enjoys spending time with his family, exercising, running, music and arts. Being new to Central Texas, he looks forward to exploring and enjoying all the area has to offer!

I decided to study medicine because of my passion for helping people in need. Surgery gave me the opportunity ofusing my hands as an instrument to heal. I enjoy all aspects of surgery, with a special interest in bariatric and robotic surgery.
