Benefits of robot-assisted surgery

Although each robotic surgery platform is different, each offers numerous benefits due to tiny incisions and increased surgical precision.

  • Less scarring

Interventional radiology services

Interventional radiology offers another avenue for treating basic to complex conditions. Our interventional radiologists use a range of image-guided technology to perform minimally invasive procedures. These procedures include computerized tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-rays or ultrasounds which our specialists combine with specially created tools.

We are pioneers in minimally invasive surgical procedures. Because of our commitment to use the latest methods, our facility was the first hospital in Virginia to offer a robot-assisted surgical guidance system for spine surgery and knee replacement surgery.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation after surgery

Often, rehabilitation is an essential component of your recovery after surgery. If physical therapy and rehabilitation are needed, our therapists will begin working with you as soon as you are able. We also offer outpatient rehab services to support you in your recovery after you leave the hospital.

Pre-admission visits before surgery

Your care team may ask you to come for an appointment before your surgery.
