Back Pain Relief & Spine Surgery Options for Less Pain & Less Swelling, HCA Virginia


– [Announcer] This is
Up to the Minute Health from HCA Virginia
Health System. – Many people suffer
with back problems, but for those who
require surgery, there are now minimally
invasive techniques that offer a shorter
hospital stay and a much faster recovery. Dr. James Leipzig explains. – The patients have
these procedures. Instead of really feeling like
they had a major operation they’re up and walking
usually within an hour or two of
their operations. We’re doing surgeries
that used to require a three to four day stay
as an outpatient. The other key issue is
that we’re not disrupting the muscle about the spine. We’re just kind of
pushing it aside. And so what the
patients notice is far less swelling,
far less pain. The small incisions and
doing the procedures I believe much better than
with traditional techniques. – Talk with one of
our spine doctors to see if this option
is right for you. Just call 1-877-2HCA-DOCS. I’m Joyce Sutton with HCA
Virginia Health System.
