I am Dr. Robert E. Tomas, Board Certified in General Surgery. I perform no mesh inguinal and umbilical hernia surgery using the Desarda Technique. I recently was sponsored by Dr. Desarda as the Desarda Hernia Center of the United States®. I have mastered the Desarda technique for inguinal hernia repair and have performed over 2000 no mesh inguinal hernia surgeries in the past eight years. Many of my videos can be seen online on YouTube and have been reviewed by Dr. Desarda himself for accuracy of the technique. Our hernia center receives patients from all over the world for repair of their inguinal hernias using the Desarda No Mesh Tension Free Repair. I also perform abdominal cosmetic surgery as well gallbladder surgery in Fort Myers, Florida. I am proficient at laparoscopic surgery and even performed the first single site gallbladder surgery at Gulf Coast Medical Center.

I received my osteopathic medical degree at Nova Southeastern College of the Health Sciences in Florida and completed my general surgery residency at Botsford General Hospital in Farmington Hills, Michigan as part of the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. As part of my training I spent several months at the University of Miami learning new techniques in general and colorectal surgery.

I am board certified and a fellow of the America College of Osteopathic Surgeons (ACOS) and a member of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA). I have served in numerous principal positions and appointments such as Chief of Surgery and Chief of Staff while at Spohn Hospital of Alice in Texas. I have been in practice for over sixteen  years and am fluent in Spanish and English.

I am also the father of three children, and now combine my medical practice with my wife to offer a combination of our clinical skills and a family environment to our community.
