Facing surgery can be one of the most stressful experiences in anyone's life. Within days of diagnosis, patients can see a number of unfamiliar healthcare professionals, which can be exhausting if the providers are in several different locations. It can be overwhelming.
The surgeons of EVMS Medical Group understand. Our surgeons are the only Level 1 Trauma surgeons in Hampton Roads, Virginia. The advantage to patients of choosing a surgeon who is dedicated to treating patients in emergency/crisis situations and can do exceptionally well with elective yet challenging problems, cannot be overstated.
As full-time faculty at Eastern Virginia Medical School, our surgeons have virtually immediate access to each other, and to every researcher and specialist on the EVMS faculty, as well as the comprehensive resources of an academic medical center. This multidisciplinary team approach means our surgeons work together, often under the same roof, to ensure the smoothest, most seamless care. In most cases, patients can see several providers in one visit.
