Urogyn and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery expands to Sarasota

Tampa, FL (April 21, 2009) — The University of South Florida Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery program has opened an office in Sarasota. The program offers a full range of medical and surgical therapies for women with urogynecological problems, including overactive bladder syndromes, uterine and bowel prolapse, chronic pelvic pain, cystitis, incontinence, recurrent urinary tract infections, and complications related to pelvic floor reconstructive surgery.

Program director Lennox Hoyte, MD, has begun seeing patients monthly at the offices of Physician Care Clinical Research, 1931 South Tuttle Ave, in Sarasota. Patients have access to the latest technology in urodynamics and bowel testing, cystoscopy and ultrasound and MRI imaging, which can help in diagnosing pelvic floor problems. Services include minimally-invasive and traditional surgeries for incontinence and prolapse, InterStim® therapy, an implantable device for difficult-to-treat urinary symptoms, and botox and pelvic floor physical therapy for severe pelvic floor pain syndromes.

Dr. Hoyte is associate professor and medical director of Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery at USF Health. He is an attending obstetrician/gynecologist at Tampa General Hospital and specializes in all types of pelvic floor disorders, including childbirth-related injury and pelvic muscle dysfunction. He is skilled in the use of robotic-assisted, minimally invasive procedures to treat prolapse.

Dr. Hoyte received his MD degree from Stanford Medical School and completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Brigham and Women’s/Massachusetts General Hospital joint training program. He completed a fellowship in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center. He is a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist, a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and a member of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons.
