At Sentara Leigh Hospital, a number of surgery options are available. Click the links below to learn more about surgery options.
Complex general surgery procedures often involve more than one organ and are possible with vast advances in technology including Argon Beam Coagulation, Radiofrequency Ablation, and CUSA. Many previously inoperative tumors are candidates for complex general surgery, thus giving patients a life extension not previously possible.
In addition to reducing blood loss, these technological advances assist with early detection, accurate diagnoses, and more precise tumor excision (sparing non-cancerous tissue). For patients, this means shorter surgery time and a better post-operative quality of life.
