Patient Care & Services

The Department of Surgery at the Miami VA Healthcare System is jointly affiliated with the Dewitt Daughtry Department of Surgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. We provide comprehensive tertiary and quaternary care to our veterans throughout the region.

Patients at the VA must meet certain criteria to receive care at the VA. Any questions about VA care can be obtained by calling 305-575-7000

To contact the Deaprtment of Surgery at the Miami VA Healthcare System, please call 305-575-3244.

To encourage efficiency, and the concept of “one stop” healthcare delivery, patients are asked to bring all appropriate studies and data with them on their first visit so that a decision can be reached immediately and a plan developed.

If a patient is ready for surgery at a given visit, all preoperative preparation including labs, EKG, CXR, blood work and anesthesia consult can be completed that day. This will minimize travel for the veteran.
