Robotic surgery technology helps to correct any human limitations in regards to movement and visualization including an augmented reality where contrast, colors and organs are easier to conceptualize,” said Dr. Bayron.

Other benefits of robotically assisted general surgery procedures can include less pain, lower risk of infection, reduced blood loss and need for blood transfusion, and shorter hospital stay. Robotically assisted surgical procedures are minimally-invasive surgeries with smaller incisions and can also result in less scarring.

Florida Medical Center currently has two da Vinci XI Surgical Systems in place at the hospital. “At Florida Medical Center, we have the advanced technology and a well-trained team in place to allow us to perform robotic assisted surgery cases successfully. I want to take this time to congratulate Dr. Fernando Bayron and the team at our hospital on this amazing accomplishment of 2,000 robotic assisted surgeries,” said Jeffrey M. Welch, CEO, Florida Medical Center and Group CEO, Miami-Dade, Broward Market, Tenet Healthcare.

Dr. Bayron performs numerous general surgery procedures robotically with the da Vinci XI Surgical System including inguinal and ventral hernia repairs, gallbladder surgery, reflux surgery and colon resection surgery. Additionally, Dr. Bayron uses the robotic surgical system for gastric sleeve, gastric bypass and revisional bariatric surgery procedures.

“Fearless to adopt new technology and innovation, Dr. Fernando Bayron, through 2000 robotic surgical cases, demonstrates his commitment to the highest quality of care and best clinical outcome for his patients. Dr. Bayron is an innovator in the field of surgery who is everyday making a difference in the lives of his patients and the community he serves. We at TFPS are incredibly proud and privileged to have Dr. Bayron on our team,” said Michael S. Davis, CEO, Tenet Florida Physician Services.
