USF urogynecologist added to national robotic surgery website

Lennox Hoyte, MD

USF urogynecologist Lennox Hoyte, MD, is the first physician on the Tampa General Hospital’s developing robotic surgery team to be listed on the da Vinci Surgery national website.

The da Vinci Surgical System, which combines state-of-the-art computer and robotic technologies, provides surgeons with an alternative to both traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy. The system enables surgeons – including those performing minimally invasive cardiothoracic, gynecologic and urologic surgeries — to perform even the most complex and delicate procedures through very small incisions with precision.
Dr. Hoyte is associate professor and director of the USF Health Center for Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery. He is an attending Obstetrician/ Gynecologist at TGH, and maintains an active clinical practice specializing in all types of female pelvic floor disorders, including genital prolapse, urinary and fecal incontinence, overactive bladder syndromes, childbirth related pelvic floor injury, and pelvic muscle dysfunction.

He performs robotic-assisted surgery for vesicovaginal fistula repair, a procedure to close abnormal connections between the bladder and vagina, and for abdominal sacrocolpopexy, a surgery to repair vaginal vault prolapse.
