The Division of Trauma Acute Care Surgery (TACS) comprises eight full-time faculty who provide 24/7 in-house coverage for general surgery, trauma and critical care. Each member of the team is board certified by the American Board of Surgery in general surgery and surgical critical care.
Our practice encompasses both a busy inpatient clinical practice and an outpatient practice. The inpatient clinical service provides daily patient care for all trauma patients, many critical care patients and emergent and urgent general surgery patients. The division is part of the teaching program for the Inova Fairfax Surgical Residency and VCU medical students.
We have a daily outpatient general surgery clinic where we see patients in follow-up from their hospitalization and new patients requiring surgical consultation. The TACS team is available for consultation for a variety of surgical diseases and routinely treat patients with biliary disease, hernias, small and large bowel disease, endocrine conditions, soft tissue lesions and upper and lower endoscopy needs. Our team approach provides efficient, expert and comprehensive care for our patients.
