Dr. Grandhige was born in Washington, D.C. and was raised in Warner Robins, Georgia. After graduating from The Johns Hopkins University with a B.A. in Biology, he attended the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor to complete his medical school. In 1999, he secured a position in a general surgery residency at Yale University in New Haven, Connecticut. He completed his general surgery residency and was selected to serve as the Educational Chief Resident during his final year in training. He continued at Yale University to complete a Minimally Invasive Foregut and Bariatric Surgery Fellowship. After his fellowship, he moved to Tampa, Florida in 2009.

He specializes in the repair of hiatal, paraesophageal and diaphragmatic hernias, the surgical treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and the laparoscopic management of achalasia.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Grandhige "The board certified surgeons at Suncoast Surgical Associates, P.A. have accrued over twenty five years of experience caring for general and thoracic surgical patients. Providing the highest quality of care to our patients is of paramount importance. This begins with a thorough pre-operative assessment during which all options including non-operative approaches are explored and given full consideration. For those patients who require surgery, we strive to provide the safest, most advanced operative techniques. These include complex laparoscopic, thoracoscopic and cutting edge robotic interventions. Our meticulous attention to all aspects of clinical care continues throughout the entire post-operative period. We feel personally invested in each of our patients and one of our surgeons is available at all hours in order to assure continuity of care."

Dr Grandhige was wonderful to work with. He is always professional and listens very carefully. I expect he is one of the best in his field. He operated on me in July. The pre-operative and post operative care was amazing. The man and his entire staff were very easy to work with. I unreservedly recommend him.
