CardioVascular Solutions Providers
Dr. Gino J. Sedillo, M.D.
It seems Dr. Gino Sedillo has been on the move his whole life. Literally, as a youngster and, as an adult, professionally.
But the 45-year-old interventional cardiologist leaves no doubt that the mobility he experienced early in life has been a positive influence in a prolific and fulfilling career.
“I had an interesting childhood, much in part due to my father,Arthur’s, profession,” said Dr. Sedillo, who was born in Albuquerque, N.M. A former Golden Gloves boxing champion and U.S. marine, Dr. Sedillo said his dad began his law enforcement career as a state patrolman and eventually became the first Hispanic agent in the Drug Enforcement Administration. “As such he was transferred to cover all of Central and South America. We relocated every two or three years on average, because of security issues and in an attempt to respond to the rapidly expanding illegal drug trade,” he said.
Dr. René Celis, M.D.
Dr. René Celis was born and raised in Tampico, Mexico. He attended school at The American School of Tampico, and was early in his schooling years that he became fascinated with science and biology. That lead Dr. Celis to enter medical school at the Universidad del Noreste in Tampico where he excelled, graduating top 10 of his class.
At the conclusion of medical school, Dr. Celis’ search for higher education and training, prompted him to leave Mexico and join the research arena in Texas. At the Texas Medical Center, he joined prestigious institutions such as Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital of Houston. During his research experience, and inspired by his mentor Dr. Guillermo Torre-Amione, he became immersed in the universe of cardiovascular diseases. Influenced by his research, he joined the University of Texas at Galveston where he completed internal medicine residency. There he met a young anesthesiology resident Dr. Brooke L. Baker, who would later become his loving wife.
