Biography

Dr. Monson is a board-certified colon and rectal surgeon with advanced fellowship training in surgical oncology, vascular surgery and colon and rectal surgery. His areas of expertise include the use of minimally invasive technologies in colorectal cancer treatment, including transanal endoscopic microsurgery (TEMS), laparoscopy and robotic surgery. In addition to his role as a leading physician with the AdventHealth Medical Group's elite colorectal surgery team, he also serves as Executive Director for Colorectal Surgery at AdventHealth in Orlando. Dr. Monson is credited with leading the development of laparoscopic colorectal surgery in the United Kingdom, and he is a former Chair of the U.K.'s National Training Program. His research encompasses a broad range of cancer-related areas including the development of national standards and qualitative assessments of decision-making in cancer care.

He was the secretary to the Irish Higher Surgical Training Group, representing trainees on the National Council. His final year project won the Dr. Pamela Gilligan Prize in Sept 2016. Since coming to Florida, he has involved himself with myriad projects including being on the steering committee for AdventHealth to achieve National Accreditation for Rectal Cancer. He has authored over 35 original published papers, 4 books and 5 book chapters.



Differentiators

My passion has always been helping the patients with the most complex and difficult problems - the ones that have run out of options. I have dedicated three decades to becoming an expert in the care of patients with complex rectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease like UC and Crohn's disease. In particular, my special skill is re-operative surgery for the patients "who cannot be fixed". When nobody can help, I will always try.

Care Philosophy

I believe I can best serve my patients by learning about each one personally. Surgery is about real and unique people who have a problem - they're not just a disease. I need to know what matters most to my patients so I can help the best way possible. That's why I like to hear their story!

Personal Interests

I am passionate about vintage cars and have raced them all around the world for many years. These days I don’t do so much but I follow any form of motorized competition! I am an armchair sports enthusiast and lifelong Manchester United fan. I am also a keen amateur – but messy – cook!
