When spine surgery is your best option

The renowned spine surgeons at Reston Hospital Center lead the way regionally and nationally in spine surgery. Our surgeons perform over 1,600 spine surgeries annually. Reston Hospital Center is also one of only eight Visiting Clinician Programs (VCP) in the United States where surgeons from around the world come to train on the latest technology.

Advanced Mazor X Technology

In 2016, Reston Hospital Center was the first hospital in Northern Virginia - and only the 14th in the nation - to use the Mazor X Renaissance™ Surgical Guidance System for minimally invasive, robotic-assisted spine surgery. Today, Reston Hospital Center is the first hospital in the nation to offer robotic-assisted minimally invasive spine surgery using the Mazor X™ Stealth Edition System.

Further, we offer advanced diagnostic imaging tools, including 3.0 Tesla MRI, an open MRI and a CT scanner with tumor localization to allow for more precise diagnosis and treatment. Our minimally invasive surgery means less trauma to muscles and tissue, resulting in shorter operations, less pain after surgery, and faster recovery. Many patients go home within a day or two.
