John W. Robertson, MD, FACS, has been providing top-notch surgical care to Central Florida residents for over three decades. He is a board-certified general surgeon with advanced expertise in minimally invasive, robotic and single-incision surgeries, including laparoscopic anti-reflux surgery. After earning his medical degree from the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville, he pursued his residency in general surgery and a fellowship in surgical research at the same school, where he capped his tenure as Chief Resident and also received a graduate degree in immunochemistry. An award-winning surgeon whose work has been published in numerous peer-reviewed medical journals, his areas of specialty range from anti-reflux, gastric and other gastrointestinal surgeries to breast, biliary, colon, hernia, spleen, thyroid and parathyroid surgeries.

Awards & Recognition

Former president, Seminole County Medical Society, numerous hospital staff committees, former American College of Surgeons Fellowship application committee member, Thomas Frist Humanitarian Award


I have always treated my ability to be a surgeon as a gift from God. It is a privilege to care for His people. As the senior member of the largest and oldest surgical practice in Seminole County, I have had 30-plus years of experience. I have also been blessed with an outstanding group of fellow surgeons, any one of whom could care for me or my family. One of the benefits of a group is that a patient can get opinions from all my colleagues when difficult problems present themselves.

Care Philosophy

Insurance companies and government intrusion into medicine have eroded the doctor-patient relationship. I will always strive to protect and restore this relationship with my patients.
