At Virginia Hospital Center, we understand that not every patient in Women & Infant Health is here to deliver a baby. Our commitment to providing outstanding, personalized medical care extends to women who have entrusted their gynecologic surgery to us. From the moment she enters the Hospital, to the superior treatment she receives, to the comfort of her private room (whether it is used for only a few hours before and after an outpatient surgery, or overnight after an inpatient procedure) every patient will be the focus of our highly skilled physicians and nurses, all of whom have training on the unique requirements of the gynecologic surgery patient.
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, urological, gynecological 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 Physician Group has female physicians 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 physicians provide care in two easily accessible locations:
- Claire Edwards, MD, Breast Surgeon
- Victoria Lai, MD, General Surgeon
- Molly Sebastian, MD, FACS, Breast Surgeon
- Sarosh Zafar, MD, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon
