Dr. Gutierrez serves on staff at AdventHealth Ocala and specializes in minimally invasive and robotic approaches to bariatric and general surgery procedures. This results in superior outcomes over traditional surgery, including a lower complication rate, less postoperative pain, a faster return to normal activities, and better cosmetic results.
Dr. Gutierrez is board-certified in general surgery by the American Board of Surgery and is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the University of Central Florida. He is an active member of multiple groups and societies, including the American College of Surgeons, the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons, and the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery. He is fluent in Spanish and spends his free time enjoying the many outdoor activities available in North and Central Florida.
Surgeons use the da Vinci Surgical System to perform complex surgical procedures through tiny incisions. This is referred to as minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopy is another form of minimally invasive surgery and refers to the use of an older technology consisting of long rigid instruments to perform surgery. Minimally invasive surgery has been proven to significantly decrease post-operative pain, infections and enhance recovery.
