Working with the UVA Health System, the Department of Surgery is part of a healthcare team that collaborates to bring the best care possible to our patients. We work with your primary care doctor and the specialists who know you best. We offer ground breaking surgical techniques such as advanced robotic surgical equipment and minimally invasive surgical techniques that limit incisions and your recovery time. Our surgeons are renowned for their expertise and committed to the highest level of patient care.
The Surgery Residency and Fellowship Programs at the University of Virginia offer a unique commitment to the housestaff through rigorous clinical experience, dedicated research and a structured curriculum; striving to create the future leaders in academic surgery. Throughout the duration of our clinical programs, residents gain knowledge of pre-operative and post-operative patient care with a strong focus on critical care, develop surgical technical skills, and - most importantly - acquire pre-, intra-, and post-operative decision making skills.
The Department of Surgery is currently undertaking a number of research endeavors in an effort to forward our knowledge of the basic sciences and improve patient care. At UVA, the Department of Surgery ranks in the top 25 nationally for total NIH funding, as reported by the BRIMR. Our physicians are dedicated to achieving quality results while undertaking some of the biggest questions facing the medical and scientific community. The projects we are involved in span our numerous divisions, and include collaborations within the University and with academics at other institutions.
