At Johnston-Willis Hospital, we have five dedicated endoscopy suites, which are separate from our traditional operating rooms. We perform procedures such as bronchial thermoplasty, cancer staging, and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS).

Your comfort and safety are our main priorities.

Endoscopy is a nonsurgical procedure used to examine a person's digestive tract. Using an endoscope, a flexible tube with a light and camera attached to it, your doctor can view pictures of your digestive tract on a color TV monitor. The endoscope can either be inserted orally or rectally, depending on the part of the gastrointestinal tract that requires an exam.

Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery

At Johnston-Willis Hospital, we perform more da Vinci® robotic surgeries than any other single facility in Central Virginia. We are the first in Virginia and one of only three hospitals in the nation to be designated as a Center of Excellence in Robotic Surgery (COERS) by the Surgical Review Corporation.

The COERS designation recognizes hospitals and surgeons who demonstrate a commitment and ability to consistently deliver safe, effective, evidence-based care through a structured program to help robotic surgeons continuously improve quality of care and patient safety. Only physicians who meet these stringent qualifications and demonstrate proven aptitude through surgical experience are invited to be part of COERS.
