Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center held a ribbon cutting ceremony for their new Back & Neck Center in Woodbridge.
Located in Sentara’s Northern Virginia Medical Center site at 2300 Opitz Boulevard, the center will now be able to offer a range of treatments and procedures for individuals dealing with neck and back issues.
“We’re very excited to be offering this center to our community. It certainly part of our goal to improve healthcare every day, and to offer the community that we live in all of the services that we can, so they don’t have to travel far to get the healthcare that they need,” said Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center President Kathie Johnson.
According to Johnson, one of the benefits of having the center versus individual doctors offering back and neck procedures is the collaboration and access it provides to patients.
“It’s unique in a couple ways – one is the high level of the clinical care that we offer. Another way is the collaboration between disciplines. We’re really able to look at the whole patient and what they need, and provide all of those services in a coordinated way,” said Johnson.
Following the ribbon cutting, surgeon Dr. Paymaun Lotfi shared his thoughts on the new center.
“I’ve been a spine surgeon in this community, in this hospital for over seventeen years…I’ve been able to offer a series of procedures and treatment options to patients [that] were never available in this community. Many patients had to go elsewhere to seek treatment,” said Lotfi.
The Back & Neck Center is now open and seeing patients.
