JFK Medical Center has two robotically-trained key opinion leaders in general surgery, Dr. Srinivas Kaza and Dr. Itzhak Shasha. They are recognized as pioneers in the area of robotic general surgery and have done numerous robotic cases. The doctors often host visiting surgeons from all over the country to observe their live cases.
JFK Medical Center has been designated as a Robotic Epi-Center for General Surgery. We are one of only two programs in the state of Florida and eight in the country. The Epicenter designation is given to the most advanced and experienced robotic surgeons and hospitals who demonstrate the superior outcomes and a passion for teaching. As an Epicenter, JFK acts as a training ground for surgeons across the U.S. to observe and train in robotic surgery.
