HCA Virginia neuroscience specialties

HCA Virginia neurologists and specialists provide care from diagnosis and treatment, through disease management and rehabilitation. Although there is no limit to the neurological conditions and disorders that we treat, we specialize in:

Trigeminal neuralgia: Trigeminal neuralgia—a disorder that causes severe pain in one side of the face—often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed. HCA Virginia offers multiple treatment options for trigeminal neuralgia, including glycerol injection and microvascular decompression (a procedure that removes a tumor or artery that’s pressing on the nerve).

Deep brain stimulation: HCA Virginia neurosurgeons are equipped to perform both awake and asleep deep brain stimulation (DBS). DBS can be used for a variety of brain and nervous system conditions, as well as movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia.

Neuro interventional: Interventional neuroradiology uses imaging technologies and minimally invasive procedures to treat head, spine and neck conditions. The board-certified interventional neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons of HCA Virginia have extensive training, knowledge and experience in safely performing these delicate procedures to deliver positive outcomes.

Neuroradiology: Neuroradiology is a specialty within radiology that uses neuroimaging to detect conditions in the nervous system, brain, spine and neck. Our board-certified neuroradiologists in Richmond, Virginia have advanced training in understanding brain and spinal cord conditions and identifying abnormalities on CT, MRI and X-ray.

Neurosurgery: Neurosurgery is a procedure performed by expert teams using advanced techniques to precisely locate, treat or remove targets inside the brain or spinal cord. HCA Virginia’s neurosurgeons work exclusively in neuroscience surgical suites, which are designed to help them address previously inoperable conditions.

Spine surgery: Spine surgery can be both neurological and orthopedic in nature, which is why HCA Virginia has neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons specializing in spine care. Our surgeons can perform a variety of spine surgeries, including pediatric spine surgery, spinal fusion and cervical disc spinal surgery, among others.

We offer unparalleled stroke care in the region. With one neuro endovascular radiologist and one neuro endovascular neurosurgeon in residence at Johnston-Willis Hospital, HCA Virginia is the only healthcare network to offer neuro endovascular procedures for stroke care in Richmond.

To assist in the removal of brain tumors and deliver effective treatment for other neurological conditions, HCA Virginia established the intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) suite at HCA Virginia's Henrico Doctors' Hospital in Richmond.
