Centra's minimally invasive surgery techniques allow the surgeon to perform the procedure through a small incision, often just an inch or two in length. When compared to traditional surgery methods, minimally invasive surgery typically results in less pain for the patient, minimal scarring, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery.
Our convenient location in Lynchburg allows patients to see their neurosurgeon pre- and post-operatively closer to home. Surgery, if needed, is performed at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital. Whenever possible, minimally invasive techniques are utilized.
