About The Department of Surgery

EVMS Health Services surgeons are nationally recognized for their clinical research, education of students and residents, and patient care.  Our department specializes in surgical oncology (including breast surgery), acute care surgery (trauma, critical care, and emergency general surgery), minimally invasive surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, hand surgery and ophthalmology. We also offer several programs for medical students interested in general surgery subspecialties.

As full-time faculty at Eastern Virginia Medical School, our practice has access to research and specialists who form the medical school's faculty as well as the comprehensive resources of an academic medical center. Groundbreaking research, possible only in an academic setting, combined with state-of-the-art patient centered quality care, provides a level of service and knowledge unmatched by other medical service providers.
