Surgery & Procedures

We know that surgery can be a difficult experience for you and your family. Our goal is to help you move, breathe, eat, sleep, and be comfortable, so you recover as soon as possible.

Types of Surgery

At UVA Health, we offer all kinds of surgery. Our high-tech robots, imaging-guided methods, and tiny video cameras give you options. Because of our expertise, we have a number of ways to make major surgery faster, better, and less painful. 

Same-Day Procedures

Same-day procedures don't require you to stay overnight in a hospital. Called outpatient surgery, these procedures often offer: 

  • Less expense
  • Reduced pain 
  • Lower risk of complications
  • Recovery in your own home

Surgeries With a Hospital Stay

If you’re having a baby or need a major operation, you'll need to stay overnight at the hospital. If you have health risks, too, we'll want to watch and care for you before you go home.
