General Surgery - Virtua Service

Advanced Surgical Procedures Speed Recovery for Patients

Virtua’s board-certified general surgeons specialize in performing emergency and elective surgical procedures, as well as diagnosing and treating abdominal pain. Surgeries include gall bladder removal, hernia repair, appendectomies, tumor removal, and liver biopsies. 

Our collaborative surgical team includes experienced surgeons, anesthesiologists and skilled surgical nurses. Surgeries are performed in advanced operating suites with sophisticated surgical and imaging technologies.

Minimally Invasive Surgical Solutions

Many patients no longer need a lengthy hospital stay after surgery thanks to advances in minimally invasive surgical techniques. Virtua’s surgeons perform many procedures using laparoscopic or robotic surgery technology. This allows the surgeon to operate through smaller incisions and with greater precision, and often results in a shorter and faster recovery for the patient. 

To consult with a Virtua surgeon, call 1-888-VIRTUA-3.
