Surgical consultations to put you at ease.
If your physician recommends surgery as a part of your treatment plan, they will connect you to one of Novant Health’s surgical navigation clinics. You'll discuss your treatment options, surgery resources and any necessary pre-surgery preparations so you feel ready for your procedure.
Your personalized consultation may be provided remotely or in person. This visit allows you to meet your surgical team, get answers to your questions on what you can expect in understandable language, and get a care plan specific to your unique needs.
Focused on a safe, fast recovery for you
Our surgeons adhere to the Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) care pathway. This means your entire care team follows scientific-based methods before, during and after surgery designed to reduce your pain, reduce your recovery time and enable you to go home faster.

Experience next-level surgical technologies to improve your recovery.
Novant Health surgeons are skilled in the latest laparoscopic and robotic-assisted surgical technologies. These minimally invasive techniques — many of which are an outpatient procedure allowing you to go home the same day — are designed to give you the most comfortable experience possible with less scarring, pain and recovery time than traditional procedures.
Robotic-assisted surgery is one of the most leading-edge, minimally invasive surgical approaches available. During such procedures, your surgeon’s skill is enhanced by advanced imaging and robotic instruments that provide a level of control and precision beyond what can be achieved with the human hand alone.
Robotic surgical precision
Many of our surgeons have expertise in using the latest robotic surgical equipment, such as the da Vinci Surgical System® or MAKOplasty® surgical system. In the operating room, your surgeon uses a console to guide robotic instruments through their hand movements. The instruments move like a human hand but with an even greater range of motion, stability and precision, guided by a magnified, high-definition 3D display of the surgical site.
We may use robotic surgery for a variety of procedures, including:
- Ear, nose and throat
- Joint replacement
- Weight loss (bariatric)
