He then pursued a Fellowship in Advanced Laparoscopy and Bariatric Surgery at UT Southwestern in Dallas, Texas. After finishing his extensive training, Dr Angel Caban joined the faculty at University of Florida and was an Assistant Professor of the Department of Surgery for three and a half years. He was involved in training medical students, surgical residents and bariatric surgery fellows. Clinically, he developed a busy practice that involved taking care of highly complex patients requiring advanced laparoscopic skills. He practiced at Shands Hospital and the Malcom Randal VA Medical Center. In January of 2014, he parted ways from the academic environment and started his private practice in Ocala, Florida. In just several months Dr Angel Caban became one of the most prominent surgeons in Marion County. He has performed many complex procedures at West Marion Community Hospitaland Ocala Regional Medical Center. These procedures include a wide variety of Laparoscopic and Open surgeries. He recently performed the first Minimally Invasive Esophagectomy in Marion County for esophageal cancer. Prior to his arrival in Ocala most of this patients had to seek medical attention far from home because of the lack of expertise in the area. Now the majority of this patients can enjoy world class care closer to their love ones. Dr Angel Caban takes great care of his patients and his outstanding outcomes are a reflection of his training, expertise and attention to details."
