Mid-Florida Surgical Associates
Dr. Alexander Schroeder joined Mid-Florida Surgical Associates in 2020 after relocating to Central Florida from Omaha, Nebraska. Dr. Schroeder was born and raised in Buchholz, Germany. Following in his father’s footsteps, he received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Hamburg. Dr. Schroeder found his passion for hernia surgery when working at Hamburg Hernia Center, Europe’s largest hernia center.
In 2014, Dr. Schroeder was part of a German team of surgeons and researchers who published new hernia surgery techniques that contributed to a change in the field towards alternative minimally invasive repairs. He then moved to Omaha, Nebraska to complete his surgical residency at Creighton University School of Medicine.
Dr. Schroeder learned to perform advanced hernia repairs including mini- or less open sublay (MILOS) and robotic techniques for abdominal wall reconstruction. The common concept of these techniques is to keep any implanted mesh outside of the abdominal cavity. This avoids contact between bowel and mesh. At Creighton University Medical Center, Dr. Schroeder participated in the first MILOS series in the United States. The excellent outcomes were then presented at the European Hernia Society Meeting in 2019.
Dr. Schroeder is board certified by the American Board of Surgery. He is a proctor and teaches other surgeons to perform daVinci robotic surgery. He is also a member of several professional organizations including the American Hernia Society, German Hernia Society, European Hernia Society, American College of Surgeons, and Society of Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgeons.
At Advent Health Winter Garden, Dr. Schroeder and his partners at Mid-Florida Surgical Associates have built the fastest growing robotics program in the region. Patients benefit from their shared experience of more than 6,000 robotic procedures performed. Benefits may include less pain, less complications, and faster return to normal activities.
Recently, Dr. Schroeder has participated in humanitarian surgical missions in Paraguay and the Dominican Republic. He joined a team of international hernia experts to provide the highest level of surgical care to underserved patients.
Dr. Schroeder and his wife Morgan, a Central Florida native, have four children: Ella, Finn, and newborn twins, Devin and Landon. His family is of utmost importance to him and he enjoys spending time together, playing soccer, and the outdoors.
