Felix Blanco, MD, General Surgeon
“The best care is given when the patient participates in developing their plan of care, so I encourage patient involvement. I also coordinate care with a patient's provider and support staff to deliver the best care possible, believing that prevention and early disease detection are keys to improve medical care in our country.”
Felix Blanco, MD, FACS, graduated from the University of San Andres in La Paz, Bolivia. He completed general surgery residency and a pediatric surgery research fellowship in Washington DC, then trained in transplant surgery at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Blanco is board certified and a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery, as well as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
As a general surgeon, Dr. Blanco performs operations involving the endocrine system, gastrointestinal tract, liver, colon, and other major parts of the body. His areas of particular interest include: laparoscopy, hepatobiliary, trauma and vascular surgery. Additional training in pediatric surgery and transplant surgery expanded his abilities to care for a broad spectrum of patients both in a large or small community.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Blanco enjoys spending time with his family doing outdoor activities, as well as drawing and handcrafting. He is a proud father of four wonderful children Sara, Victoria, Oliver and little Gabriela and currently lives in Stillwater, MN.
