After spending a year practicing in North Carolina, he spent 19 years in suburban Washington D.C., where he was consistently named a Top Doctor by Washingtonian magazine. While there he served as Associate Professor of Surgery at the Inova Campus of VCU School of Medicine in Fairfax, Va. was active in teaching residents the art of surgery and developed one of the busiest clinical practices in the region. Dr. Savoca joined Virginia Hospital Center Physician Group - Colorectal Surgery in 2014.

Dr. Savoca specializes in minimally invasive colorectal surgery particularly as it applies to the treatment of cancer and inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis) which causes less postoperative pain and allows patients to enjoy a quicker return to full activity. As well, he has maintained active interest in pelvic floor problems and benign anorectal conditions. He holds certifications from the National Board of Medical Examiners, the American Board of Surgery, and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery.
