Surgical Services


All doctors claim to be the best, but the patient’s opinion is what really seals the declaration. At Sampson Regional Medical Center, our surgeons pride themselves not only on their surgical skills, but also getting to know their patients in-depth. That’s why we claim the best surgeons know you inside out. At Sampson Regional Medical Center, you are not a case number on the operating table, but rather Percy who has a garden to attend in the summer after his prostate surgery, Samantha who has to take her son to soccer camp after she delivers twins, Charlie who has that lifetime adventure planned to Australia once he gets his artificial hip, and Julie who plans to visit Disney World with her parents after repair of her broken arm.
 
In choosing Sampson Regional Medical Center, you quickly come to understand the true meaning of “Best,” both in terms of care provided and care shown.
