The Most Experienced Robotic Surgeon in the World
Dr. Vipul Patel serves as the Medical Director of the Global Robotic Institute. He has personally performed the most robotic prostatectomies in the world and has currently performed over 6,000 procedures. He has utilized his skill and knowledge in this field to train and educate surgeons world wide. He is editor in chief of the Journal of Robotic Surgery and of the first robotic urology textbook. Prior to joining Florida Hospital, Dr. Patel practiced at the Ohio State University where he served as the Director of Robotic and Minimally Invasive Urologic Surgery.
The da Vinci® robot allows our experienced surgeons to transfer their skills into a laparoscopic environment that employs highly precise instruments and magnified vision. This minimally invasive procedure is quickly gaining popularity as the most preferred cancer treatment for surgical removal of the prostate.
The Leading Robotic Surgical Team
The mission of the GRI is to ensure that our hand-selected team is comprised of the world’s best and brightest medical staff. With that in mind, we have built a team of over 50 professionals who strive to serve our patients and support the surgical team’s pursuit of excellence. We have assembled a comprehensive team to deliver the best option to each patient that comes to our Institute. We take a multimodality and multidisciplinary approach to patient care, collaborating with experts in radiation oncology, medical oncology and internal medicine to provide the optimal comprehensive approach to urologic cancer to our patients. Surgery is not the best option for all patients; therefore, we evaluate each patient individually and assess the potential prostate treatment options of active monitoring, radiation therapy, androgen deprivation and other surgical modalities.

The state of the art facilities at Florida Hospital are unparalleled. From the resort inspired facility at Celebration Health to the hub of Central Florida's healthcare at Florida Hospital Orlando, patients travel from all over the globe to receive their treatment at our hospital.
