      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Picciocca's Care Philosophy

      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.
