Dr. Oviedo has published numerous research manuscripts and book chapters, including the first robotic general surgery case series published in the international surgical literature from an American community hospital perspective.

After graduating from residency, Dr. Oviedo became an attending surgeon and Assistant Professor of Surgery at Florida State University College of Medicine for 4 years in Tallahassee, FL, at Capital Regional Medical Center. In Tallahassee, Dr. Oviedo developed a successful and busy robotic general surgery program capable of performing highly advanced general, oncologic, and metabolic operations, including the first robotic Roux en Y gastric bypass and the first robotic sleeve gastrectomy in the history of that city.
