Dr. Adam Kurtin is a board-certified general surgeon who has been in practice on the Treasure Coast for more than 20 years. His practice encompasses the full spectrum of general surgery with expertise in the operative management of diseases of the thyroid, breast, gastrointestinal system, colon, hernias, and more.
From the time he was a medical student, he was drawn to the art and science of surgery, the wide variety of diseases it covered, and the opportunity to have a direct impact on the lives of patients.
Over the past several years, the most exciting advancement has been implementing a robotic system in surgery. In Dr. Kurtin’s experience, robotics have revolutionized the performance and improved outcomes for many abdominal operations. The da Vinci Surgical System has many advantages including enhanced, stereoscopic, high-definition magnification. This provides better visualization of the anatomy than ever before. The robotic instruments give the surgeon greater freedom of movement, providing more control and better precision to work inside the abdomen. This all translates into better outcomes, less postoperative pain, and shorter hospital stays.
“Nothing is more thrilling to me than to see a patient come in for a colon resection, have a robotic-assisted operation, and go home after one or two nights in the hospital, having good bowel function, and not even taking one dose of narcotic pain medication,” shares Dr. Kurtin.
Treasure Coast Surgical Specialists treat patients with the same level of care and compassion they would want for their families. When Dr. Kurtin is not working, he spends time with his wife, Dr. Jennifer Kurtin, a family practitioner, and his four children. He also enjoys cooking, boating, and fishing.
