Neurosurgery and neurological treatments
Reston Hospital is proud to offer state-of-the-art neurological treatments, including:
- Glycerol injection: Minimally invasive, outpatient treatment option for trigeminal neuralgia (face pain)
- Kyphoplasty/vertebroplasty: A rejuvenating treatment used in spine care for spine fractures and herniated/degenerative discs
- Microvascular decompression: Also known as craniotomy, an option to open the skull with a small incision behind the ear to treat trigeminal neuralgia (face pain)
- Tests and imaging: Procedures and equipment for extensive exploration of neurological health conditions to give you and your physician the most accurate information available
- Tumor embolization: Cuts off blood flow to a tumor before surgery, which means shorter surgical procedures, less blood loss and reduced need for transfusion
- Radiotherapy: Uses ionizing radiation, typically for cancer treatment, to kill or control malignant cells; Also known as radiation therapy
- Stereotactic radiosurgery: A minimally invasive procedure used to treat a variety of brain disorders and tumors
Interventional neuroradiology uses minimally invasive imaging technologies and procedures to diagnose diseases of the head, neck and spine—including brain tumors. The fragile vessels in these areas—some barely the thickness of a human hair—coil and curve extensively, requiring an experienced touch to avoid damage during medical procedures.
We know and perform all treatment options, including stereotactic radiosurgeries, which means we can customize a care plan specifically for your condition and your circumstances. For example, one of our well-received imaging and treatment techniques takes a catheter directly into the brain, instead of first passing it through the heart, which shortens surgical time and reduces the chance of potential complications.

Brain cancer and tumor care
Our neurosurgeons at Reston Hospital spend the majority of their time operating on tumors and treating disorders of the brain, placing them in an elite group of surgeons in the U.S. and among the very best in northern Virginia. We treat all types of brain tumors, including malignant and benign tumors and rare, skull-based lesions. Our cancer program is accredited the Commission on Cancer.
Reston Hospital's neurologists have access to state-of-the-art imaging services to ensure accurate diagnosis and treatment of brain disorders and neurological conditions. Some imaging modalities used in neurology include ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) scan and electroencephalogram (EEG). An EEG uses sensors to evaluate electrical brain activity, also referred to as brain waves.
Care for neurological conditions goes beyond the initial recognition and medications delivered or procedures performed. At Reston Hospital, our neurological rehabilitation program helps patients regain motor functions following a neurological event or surgery.
