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 General Surgery Program at the University of Virginia offers a unique commitment to the residents through rigorous clinical experience, dedicated research and a structured curriculum striving to create the future leaders in academic surgery. During the five-years of our clinical program, residents gain knowledge of the 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. 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.
