About Centra Medical Group Neurosciences:
Centra provides expert neurological care in Bedford, Gretna, Lynchburg, and Farmville. Centra Lynchburg General Hospital was the first hospital in central, southside, and western Virginia to earn The Joint Commission's National Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers. Centra has since been awarded the Get with the Guidelines, Gold Plus Achievement designation reserved for health systems who achieve higher quality standards. A dedicated neurological intensive care unit at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital provides specialized nursing technologies for patients recovering from significant head injury or head and neck neurosurgical procedures.
The CMG Neurosciences division has grown significantly in the past several years to include specialized epilepsy services complete with epilepsy monitoring unit, neurodiagnostics and research, stroke and neurovascular services, as well as development of a comprehensive headache center with plans for expansion to treating concussions.
In 2019, the department developed a movement disorders program along with a dedicated MS Clinic to address the specific needs of these patients. This included the development of a robust DBS program including surgical options and medical management of DBS devices.
The Neurosciences surgical team is trained in spine, complex spine, and vascular neurosurgery. Within the neurovascular services, the team offers a full range of clinical capability from endovascular procedures to open cerebrovascular procedures addressing AVMs, aneurysms, and tumors.
The department has dedicated resources to the development of research within the Neurosciences department; these efforts will continue to expand with the addition of the MS clinic and the Movement Disorders Program as well as with the expansion and interest of other providers that join the team.
