Patient Preferred Network Bestows Empowered Women Awards. Recipient Dr. Sharona Ross honored as a "Beacon of inspiration" to aspiring women surgeons.

"My goals always revolve around providing the best patient care to all of my patients. I make sure to embrace surgical technology that may help me accomplish those goals."

    TAMPA, FL, September 30, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Board-certified advanced Foregut and HPB Surgeon Dr. Sharona Ross has been named the 2023 Empowered Women In Medicine Award winner. This prestigious honor is chosen by the esteemed Patient Preferred Physicians Network, which highlighted Dr. Ross for her leadership, excellence in patient care, and inspirational attitude to healthcare.

With over 20 years of experience in her field, Dr. Sharona Ross has continuously embraced new technology and medical advancement. Specializing in robotic and single-incision laparoscopic operations for conditions of the esophagus, stomach, small bowel, pancreas, gallbladder, and liver, she has pioneered treatment while focusing on delivering exceptional patient care.

However, Dr. Ross has continued to push boundaries outside of the surgical theater. In 2009, she created, and to this day continues to develop, the Annual International Women in Surgery Career Symposium. This yearly conference brings together successful women surgeons with undergraduates, medical students, residents, and fellows, encouraging interaction and the exchange of ideas in the still male-dominated field.

Dedicated to remaining abreast of the latest industry developments, Dr. Sharona Ross is also an active member of several organizations and affiliations, including The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons Program Committee, Co-Chair of Technology Committee, Development Committee, and Robotic Task Force Committee. She is also on the Society of Laparoendoscopic & Robotic Surgeons International Advisory Board, Chair of the Technology, Innovation, & Standardization Committee, and Women in Surgery Committee.

The prestigious Empowered Women in Medicine Award is an annual honor from the Patient Preferred Physicians Network.
