Meet The Team
Dr. Zoyla Almeida,
Dr. Almeida graduated from Swarthmore College and attended Hahnemann University Medical School. Her residency and fellowship training were completed at University of Miami, and she held a position as Assistant Professor in Obstetrics and Gynecology before completing her fellowship training. She takes pride in being bilingual accommodating the needs of her patients and their families, and understanding the needs for timely appointments.
The minimally invasive surgery performed by Dr. Zoyla Almeida reflects her deeply held belief in the importance of the link between female reproductive health and a woman’s quality of life. This significantly influences her practice, and is reflected in the consistent and compassionate care she gives her patients. It’s also what motivates her to pursue the cutting edge therapies and procedures that will ensure advanced levels of treatment for future generations. By specializing in minimally invasive, robotic, and SILS (Single Incision Laparoscopy Surgery) her patients can expect less visible scarring, reduced pain due to fewer incisions, and faster recovery times than those with open surgery.
Enabling a woman to transition through the surgical process and return to her life, in the care of a physician who emphasizes the delivery of appropriate and attentive care, is a key component of Dr. Almeida’s approach to gynecological oncology. Her skills and expertise provide invaluable training and instruction in laparoscopic and robotic surgical methods to the medical community.
She is a published author and sought-after speaker on the subject of cancers that affect the reproductive organs, the significance of preventive care, and the latest diagnostic innovations. Her practice provides a supportive, welcoming, and educational environment for physicians, medical students, externs, and those seeking to increase their level of medical knowledge.
