Hospitalists are physicians who
specialize in taking care of patients while they are in the hospital, including
those admitted through the Emergency Department. Hospitalist programs were started to provide
patients with access to the highest quality care at all times.
Our Orthopedic and
Surgical Hospitalists rotate their schedules to ensure that you receive
around-the-clock quality care while in the hospital and throughout your
follow-up period. They are members of a
team of physicians dedicated to the hospital and committed exclusively to its
patients. This allows other physicians
in the community to focus on patients who have scheduled appointments in their
practices. Hospitalists must meet the same requirements as every other
physician on the hospital’s medical staff and were chosen because of their
skills and ability to provide quality patient care. Our Hospitalists provide
CarolinaEast Health System patients acute orthopedic surgical and fracture care,
acute general surgery care as well as
an elective outpatient general surgery clinic.
Elective General Surgery-
The Orthopedic and
Surgical Hospitalists have added new
and exciting capabilities to the surgical services available at CarolinaEast
Medical Center in New Bern, NC. In addition to the acute care and emergency
surgery services, the program now provides elective surgery services. The
elective service is a complement to the existing acute care/emergency surgery
service. The surgeons work together to provide the best possible service for
all patients with surgical conditions.
Elective services available include
gastrointestinal surgery (colon/rectum, small intestine, gall bladder, stomach,
etc.), soft tissue biopsies as well as other procedures. The service also
provides advanced robotic and laparoscopic surgeries for certain procedures.
The service does not provide elective bariatric (weight loss), elective
vascular, specialty pediatric, thoracic (lung and heart), or plastic (cosmetic)
surgery. Questions about which services are provided will be gladly provided by
the clinic staff.
