Board certified cardiothoracic surgeon Dr. Patrick Mangonon performed Flagler County’s first thoracic robotic (lung) surgery at AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway on April 5.

AdventHealth has a proven track record of performing robot-assisted surgeries, with a focus on orthopedic, gynecological, general and urological procedures.

In the last year, the county’s newest hospital, AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway, introduced a robotics program, featuring the community’s only Aquablation system and bringing a second da Vinci surgical system to Flagler County.

The first da Vinci XI robot is located at AdventHealth Palm Coast. Now, Mangonon has taken the robotic surgery program to another level by performing thoracic (lung) procedures via the da Vinci system at Advent Health Palm Coast Parkway.

While new to Flagler County, Mangonon is not new to the area. After a successful career spanning 17 years in South Florida, he relocated to AdventHealth Daytona Beach in 2016 as an experienced minimally invasive heart and lung surgeon. In 2019, he was tasked to start and develop the robotic thoracic surgery program at AdventHealth Daytona Beach. Now, after over 400 robotic cardiac and thoracic procedures performed, Mangonon expanded his practice and opened a second clinic at AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway.  

“Minimally invasive procedures using small incisions are often associated with decreased risks of bleeding, decreased risk of infection, decreased post-operative pain and quicker return to normal," Mangonon said. "Now, Flagler County patients and their loved ones don’t have to travel to Daytona Beach or elsewhere for that matter to have these types of robotic surgeries, which can be a relief during stressful times. Ultimately, we want patients in the greater Palm Coast community to have access to the most advanced surgical care without adding the hardship of travel.”

Mangonon’s second clinic is located at the medical office building at AdventHealth Palm Coast Parkway, 3 AdventHealth Way, Suite 220. His office phone number is 386-231-3513.
