About Olusola Oduntan

As an associate professor in the University of Florida Division of Thoracic Surgery, I assure patients that our team is with them every step along the way. I specialize in thoracic surgery. My clinical and research areas of interest are benign diseases of the esophagus, esophageal cancer, general thoracic surgery and lung cancer. I treat patients for a wide range of conditions in these areas.

I received my medical degree from the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, Nigeria, and completed an internship and general surgery residency at the University College Hospital, also in Ibadan. I completed another general surgery residency at Yale New Haven Hospital, Hospital of Saint Raphael in Connecticut, and a cardiothoracic surgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia. Following that, I completed an advanced general thoracic surgery fellowship at Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School.

My specialty training is in robotic thoracic surgery, a type of minimally invasive surgery used in thoracic procedures for some lung cancer cases, and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy, a minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat problems of the chest. Outside of UF Health Shands Hospital, I am a committee member of the International Society for Diseases of the Esophagus (ISDE) and the Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS).

In my free time, I enjoy staying active by playing tennis and soccer.
