Sentara expands neurosurgery services to the Peninsula
Sentara CarePlex Hospital recently added neurosurgery services, led by experienced neurosurgeon Dr. Tina Rodrigue, to its Hampton campus. With the addition of these services, patients on the Peninsula will be able to receive surgical treatment for brain and spine disorders, including neurooncology and neurotrauma.
“We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Rodrigue as well as her extensive experience and expertise to the Peninsula community,” said Kapua Conley President of Sentara CarePlex Hospital. “She has been practicing for years in advanced clinical settings, and will now bring her knowledge full-time to Sentara CarePlex Hospital to serve the Peninsula.”
These neurosurgery services are an extension of the Sentara Healthcare comprehensive, multi-disciplinary neurosciences program, which is a well-established program that comes with decades of experience, superior clinical quality and physician capabilities.
“I am excited to further build on the strong neurology and neurosurgery program that Sentara already has in place,” said Dr. Rodrigue. “With the expansion of neurosurgery services to the Peninsula, Sentara is underscoring its investment in continually growing its neuroscience services and offering innovative and personalized care close to home.”
Sentara is committed to providing expert care, individualized treatment plans and serving as a trusted healthcare partner. The neurosurgery program will offer minimally invasive surgical techniques for improved patient outcomes with a focus on providing the right care, in the right location, at the right time and in the most cost effective way for its patients.
