General Surgery

General Surgery

At Florida Hospital Orlando, we understand the difficulties patients face when making the decision to have surgery.  There are many things to consider, from the physician experience and risks associated with surgery, to the hospital where you will have the procedure and begin recovery. That’s why we provide patients with the best care possible in a compassionate, patient-centered environment that reflects our mission, vision, and values.
The General Surgery team at Florida Hospital Orlando works closely with patients, ensuring they are treated with the utmost respect and care. We are proud to have some of the finest surgeons, nurses and staff who are leaders in their respective fields.

A Leader in Minimally Invasive Surgery
Renowned for our leadership in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and robotic surgery, Florida Hospital continues to redefine the very concept of surgery. Highly invasive open operations - the standard procedure over the last century - are rapidly giving way to entirely new ways to perform surgery that increase precision while greatly reducing scarring and recovery time. Florida Hospital is fortunate to have some of the most respected surgical experts in the country who are not only pioneering new MIS techniques, but teaching them to other surgeons worldwide.

Laparoscopic Procedures
Thanks to laparoscopic surgical devices and remotely controlled instrumentation, surgeons are able to make a few small incisions – and sometimes just one tiny incision – instead of the large ones required in the past to access the surgical environment.

Robotics
One of the most exciting advances in surgery is robotics. At Florida Hospital, surgeons are using state-of-the-art surgical tools such as the da Vinci® or Senhance® robotic systems to conduct surgeries that have greatly improved post-surgery results and patient recoveries.

We are here for our patients every step of the way to answer any questions they have about their procedure and familiarize them with the people who will provide their care before, during, and after surgery.
Below are a few suggested questions that may be helpful during the decision-making process:

  • What type of surgery has been recommended?
  • Why do I need this surgery?
  • Do I have to have surgery, or are there other alternatives/options?
  • What will happen if I don’t have the surgery?
  • What are the benefits of this surgery, and how long will they last?
  • What are the risks and possible complications?
  • Where will the surgery be performed?
  • What type of anesthesia will be administered?
  • What can I expect during recovery?
