    Jorge Almodovar, MD, is Board Certified in General Surgery, earning his medical degree from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine in St. Maarten. He completed his general surgery residency at Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield, California and Advent Health Orlando (formerly Florida Hospital Orlando) in Orlando, Florida. Dr. Almodovar then completed his Fellowship in Advanced Gastrointestinal/Minimally Invasive Surgery at Jackson South Medical Center in Miami, Florida.

    Motivated to help others, Dr. Almodovar pursued a career in medicine. He credits his father’s influence through his service to the underserved population with his decision. “Through my father’s example, I was heavily influenced to pursue a career that benefits others. Since I enjoyed sciences, medicine was a natural path for me.”

    Dr. Almodovar joined the Eisenhower staff in 2020. He is a skilled general surgeon, specializing in robotic and laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery. His commitment to advanced medical and surgical treatment is evidenced by his training and utilization of the daVinci® Surgical System for robot assisted, minimally invasive surgeries. The daVinci® technology offers a less invasive technique than traditional surgery (open), and allows surgeries to be performed through a few small incisions.  Using the daVinci® Surgery technology allows patients to have less pain, minimal scarring, a shorter hospital stay and faster recovery.  Dr. Almodovar’s fellowship training included advanced robotic, endoscopic and laparoscopic treatment of colorectal and foregut/gastrointestinal cancers and diseases, with a specialization in surgical treatment of bariatric disorders.  “There is nothing more rewarding for me than the satisfaction that I have helped someone regain wellness and improved their quality of life.”
