When you are considering surgery, you can rely on the skill, dedication and training of ECU Physicians. Our surgeons have the outstanding qualifications you look for as an assurance of the best possible care before, during and after your procedure.
Our landmark work includes minimally invasive and robotic surgery, as well as minimally invasive (laparoscopic) procedures for digestive diseases, cancer, women's reproductive disorders and other illnesses. We are recognized as leaders for our clinical excellence and compassion.
In surgical care, experience is considered an important indicator of quality. Our surgeons perform more than 19,500 procedures each year, including major and minor procedures.
We offer general surgeries, transplants , trauma and critical care and cancer surgery. Through the East Carolina Heart Institute, we offer life-saving heart and vascular procedures.
We pioneered weight-loss surgery (bariatric surgery) and today perform hundreds of these procedures each year. Our medical database allows us to follow our patients closely for many years after their procedure to verify their long-term results. We support overweight patients as they make their decision, and throughout their recovery.
Our newest division, the ECU Neurological and Spine Center, offers patients state-of-the art Gamma Knife technology, which allows us to operate without incisions. Our neurosurgery center also offers microvascular surgery, pediatric neurosurgery and complex spine surgery and radiosurgery.
