Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgeries in

Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Robotic and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Robotic and minimally invasive surgery is a multidisciplinary program that includes surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and operating room staff which have been developed to improve the patient experience by minimizing the trauma of invasive surgery without altering the surgical treatment of disease. The result has been that patients receive the benefits of invasive surgery, even invasive cancer surgery, without the side effects of the large surgical incisions and scars, especially in combination with an enhanced surgical recovery program.

Therefore, when patients are considering surgical treatment for their diagnosis, it is important to also consider whether minimally invasive surgery, including robotic-assisted surgery, would be an appropriate option. Surgical treatment is a personalized treatment, and therefore, depending on the diagnosis and clinical status of the patient, such minimally invasive techniques may be an appropriate option. Dr. Rashid and his team have been leaders in robotic surgery, in both developing some of the technologies and in also offering such technologies to our patients here in South Florida, speaking nationally and internationally on the appropriate role of robotic surgery in complex cases and cancer treatment. Because of the rapid advances in surgical care, we participate in a robust active research program so that our patients in South Florida will have access to world-class care close to home without having to travel long distances.

Lauri D.

Dr. Rashid saved my life! He was compassionate and walked us through every step of my surgery and recovery. His nurse Khin was amazing and understanding.

  Amazing doctor! Dr. Rashid allowed me to be part of a new castle scan study that allowed us to find out if my melanoma tissue shows high or low risk for recurrence and how likely it is to be in my lymph nodes. The result of this test gave me peace of mind that I’m low risk and my anxiety has gone down tremendously!! thank you for that! When i did go to his office to speak with him, he sat with me for almost an hour explaining everything in detail and taking his time to make sure I understand everything. He is very kind and patient and I highly recommend him if you are researching to find a doctor!

  Highly recommend Dr. Rashid. Caring, compassionate and well qualified cancer surgeon. He takes the extra steps most physicians don’t take to make your experience seamless and complication free as possible.
