Get to know Urogynecologist Dr. Lennox Hoyte, who serves patients in Tampa, Florida.
Dr. Hoyte is a fellowship-trained urogynecologist providing personalized, evidence-based treatments and a wide range of successful surgical and nonsurgical therapies for all types of pelvic ﬂoor disorders.
He is the Managing Partner of The Pelvic Floor Institute in Tampa, Florida with offices in Sarasota. He founded the Institute in order to provide personalized care to women with complex pelvic floor disorders.
There, he and his team are dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and cure of women with all types of pelvic floor disorders, including pelvic organ prolapse (cystocele, rectocele, enterocele, uterine prolapse), urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence, complications of pelvic surgery, transvaginal mesh complications, bladder and vaginal pain, myofascial pain, fistula, and childbirth related injuries. They also offer an innovative minimally invasive robotic abdominal cerclage for women with recurrent pregnancy loss due to premature cervical dilation, after confirmation by a qualified obstetrician.
A pioneer in the use of robotic surgery for prolapse repair, Dr. Hoyte specializes in advanced robotic and vaginal surgery to correct vaginal prolapse. He has performed over 1,000 robotic surgical procedures, and has trained over 60 surgeons in the use of the Da Vinci robotic Surgical system.
With a focus on delivering excellent outcomes and an outstanding patient experience, he is currently an attending urogynecologist at Memorial Hospital of Tampa, Tampa General Hospital, Sarasota Memorial Hospital, and Florida Hospital. He is also the Director of Urogynecology and Pelvic Floor Disorders at Tampa General Hospital.
Prior to coming to medicine, Dr. Hoyte spent 10 years as a computer system designer and design automation specialist. He graduated with his Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in 1980. Two years later, he obtained his Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
His acclaimed career in medicine began after he earned his medical degree from the Stanford University School of Medicine in 1995. He then went on to complete his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, followed by his fellowship in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery at Loyola University Medical Center.
Ensuring a safer, easier journey for the patients, Dr. Hoyte is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology & female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG). The mission of the ABOG is to define standards, certify obstetricians and gynecologists, and facilitate continuous learning to advance knowledge, practice, and professionalism in women’s health.
In addition to being a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (FACOG), he is an elected member of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons, the American Urogynecologic Society, and the Society of Urodynamics, Female Pelvic Medicine & Urogenital Reconstruction.
Dr. Hoyte has a passion for teaching women and their families about diagnosis and treatment options for urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. In addition to speaking engagements, he has written a book – “prolapse repair”, designed specifically to educate women about safe treatment options for prolapse.
Inventing and commercializing medically related intellectual property, he has received patents on devices including bladder drainage aids, instruments for simplifying prolapse surgery, and a device for preventing tissue spread during laparoscopy.
For over a decade, Dr. Hoyte spent time designing and building advanced computer circuits, and tools for automating their design and production. This prepared him for a research career in MRI-based 3D pelvic reconstruction, where he published a large number of peer-reviewed manuscripts. His current research is geared to developing imaging markers to predict the success of different surgical approaches to correct pelvic organ prolapse.
Urogynecology is a subspecialty of Gynecology, and in some countries is also known as Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery. A urogynecologist manages clinical problems associated with dysfunction of the pelvic floor and bladder. Pelvic floor disorders affect the bladder, reproductive organs, and bowels.
