Marco B. Saucedo, Doctor Arrested for Sexual Assault of Patients.


Marco B. Saucedo, 56, is a Nogales-based obstetrician and gynecologist at Women’s Heath and Surgery Center in California who is facing five charges related to the alleged sexual assault of patients. Saucedo touched the genitals of one victim without consent and “engaged in sexual intercourse or oral sexual contact” without consent in April 2018. Then, the complaint alleges Saucedo knowingly touched a second victim’s genitals, butt, nipples, and breasts without consent in December 2022. As an active employee, Saucedo is still on the Women’s Health and Surgery Center’s webpage.

Impact of Health Care Abuse

Sexual assault at the hands of a medical professional is a profound betrayal. It shatters the trust and vulnerability inherent in the patient-doctor relationship. Patients often turn to healthcare providers seeking care, comfort, and healing, placing immense trust in those dedicated to their well-being. As a result, when this trust is violated, survivors grapple with emotional turmoil, shame, and a loss of faith in the medical system. Addressing such violations is crucial for the survivor’s healing, maintaining the integrity of the healthcare profession, and ensuring a safe environment for all patients.

How Can A Civil Lawsuit Help Victims Seek Justice For The Trauma They May Have Experienced by Marco B. Saucedo?

There are many misunderstandings about why a survivor of sexual abuse would choose to file a civil lawsuit.   Sexual assault takes away so much from the survivors and families impacted. Our society still struggles to find ways to repair the harm done by individual perpetrators and institutions that have covered it up.

Filing a civil case can be an essential step for survivors and their families in their journey to slowly rebuild their lives and create pathways to healing. Motivation for filing a civil suit is often questioned and unfairly stereotyped as “all about money.” Filing a civil lawsuit can cast survivors as “money hungry” and is weaponized to shame and blame them even more. This couldn’t be further from the truth for survivors of child sexual abuse. The civil justice system offers victims more than just monetary benefits. It gives survivors access to justice, validation, exposure, confrontation, and resolution. The resolution allows survivors of sexual abuse to understand and process what happened and create a new path forward without confusion, questions, and fear.
