Surgery Around the Region: How to find surgical care, close to home

You may know that Winchester Medical Center offers advanced surgical services. But did you know that surgical specialists provide advanced care at locations across the region? Below are answers to your questions about how area residents can find top-notch surgical care from a Valley Health surgeon, close to home. 

Q: What types of surgery are performed at my regional hospital? 

A: Valley Health employs and partners with many surgeons who routinely perform general abdominal surgery (gall bladder, hernia, bowel and upper GI procedures, for example); breast and gynecologic procedures; colonoscopy; and orthopedic, urologic, and ear, nose and throat procedures. Our surgeons use a combination of minimally invasive endoscopic and laparoscopic techniques, along with traditional open surgery, selecting the most appropriate approach for each patient’s unique needs. 

Like many other Valley Health surgeons, Javeed Khan, MD, general surgeon at Hampshire Memorial Hospital, notes that locally performed, minimally invasive options offer numerous benefits to patients: “I am able to perform many types of surgery on an outpatient basis … so patients often don’t have to stay overnight in the hospital. Now they can get surgical care close to home. When patients do have to stay overnight, they value having family nearby.” 

Q: What steps do I need to take to get specialized surgical care in my community hospital?  

A: Many patients are referred by their primary care provider to a specialist at a local Valley Health facility—and patients may be pleasantly surprised when a surgeon offers nonsurgical treatment options. “Not everyone who is referred needs surgery,” says Greg Hardigree, MD, orthopedic surgeon, who sees patients at Valley Health Shenandoah Memorial Hospital Multispecialty Clinic. “I always begin with the simplest treatments. I have many tools in my medical tool box, and surgery is one, but not the only one. Often medication, therapy or injections are tried before surgery is considered.” He adds that his patients appreciate the convenience of getting care in their local community.
