Medical conditions may be difficult
Conversations about them, don't have to be.
All things being equal, many women prefer to go to a female physician rather than a male physician for their colon and rectal, urogynecologic and breast healthcare. When a female patient has a sensitive condition requiring highly-specialized surgical care, there are few female experts to whom she can turn.
Fortunately, Virginia Hospital Center has five female surgeons who possess advanced surgical training and specific focus in their area of expertise, which may make patients feel more comfortable and less embarrassed by their treatment because it is being administered by a woman. And for patient convenience, these six surgeons provide care in one easily-accessible location.
