The board-certified surgeons at Florida Hospital North Pinellas Surgical Institute are proven leaders in their respective fields whose capabilities extend to the most advanced and effective surgical techniques -- including open, endoscopic and minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic procedures. Physicians from across the state of Florida refer their patients to us with the confidence that we can meet most every diagnostic and surgical need, be it cancer removal, hernia repair, heart or lung surgery, or dozens of potential plastic and reconstructive surgeries. Their immediate access to the nearby operating facilities of Florida Hospital is an advantage to patients from all across Tarpon Springs, Palm Harbor, Clearwater, Dunedin and the surrounding Tampa Bay metro area who seek their expertise to address a wide variety of health conditions.

Please see below for a partial listing of select conditions we treat and procedures in which our surgeons specialize, and please keep in mind that the combined expertise of our four leading surgeons is quite extensive and that not every operation they perform is enumerated here. If you have questions regarding our surgeons’ specialties or would like to arrange for a consultation with Dr. Astra or Dr. Kotak, please contact our institute at 727.270.9927 or fill out an appointment request form here.
