2 leading surgeons leave FL hospital for competitor, take staff

Tampa Bay Times, August 24, 2012

Two of the area's most respected surgeons have left the University of South Florida and Tampa General Hospital, taking 18 staffers with them to establish a new program at Florida Hospital Tampa. Dr. Alexander Rosemurgy, a fixture at Tampa General for 27 years, has gained a national reputation particularly for treating pancreatic cancer patients. Dr. Sharona Ross is an 11 year TGH veteran and USF faculty member who collaborated with Rosemurgy on dozens of pioneering research projects. The name of their new medical practice describes their specialties: Southeastern Center for Digestive Disorders and Pancreatic Cancer, Advanced Minimally Invasive and Robotic Surgery.
