Movement disorder treatment
At our hospitals, we offer comprehensive treatment for movement disorders. We employ experienced neurologists and rehabilitation therapists who create a customized treatment plan for your specific condition. Our goal is to maximize your independence and mobility while optimizing the quality of life for you and your family.
Our emergency care teams exceed standards that ensure the best stroke care and stroke recovery care for you. Additionally, with one neuro-endovascular radiologist and one neuro-endovascular surgeon in residence at Johnston-Willis Hospital, we are the only healthcare network to offer neuro-endovascular procedures for stroke.
Trigeminal neuralgia treatment
Trigeminal neuralgia is a disorder that causes severe pain in one side of the face. Because this can also be a symptom of many other disorders, trigeminal neuralgia often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.
We offer multiple treatment options for trigeminal neuralgia, including glycerol injection and microvascular decompression (a procedure that relieves pressure from a nerve).
Neurological treatments and services
We offer a wide range of treatments and services to help patients find relief from their symptoms caused by a neurological condition.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
Our neurosurgeons are equipped to perform both awake and asleep DBS. DBS can be used to treat a variety of brain and nervous system conditions, as well as movement disorders, such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
DBS works by implanting a device that sends electrical signals to brain areas responsible for body movement. These electrical signals can help reduce symptoms, such as tremors, slowness of movement, stiffness and walking problems, caused by movement disorders.
Interventional neuroradiology combines imaging technologies and minimally invasive procedures to treat head, spine and neck conditions. Our board-certified interventional neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons have extensive training, knowledge and experience in safely performing these delicate procedures to deliver positive outcomes.
Neurological rehabilitation and stroke recovery
At our hospitals, we begin your neurological or stroke rehabilitation in your hospital room to help you heal. Our specialists use many forms of rehabilitation therapy, including physical, occupational and speech therapy, to help you regain as much function as possible.
Neuroradiology is a specialty within radiology that uses neuroimaging to detect conditions in the nervous system, brain, spine and neck. Our board-certified neuroradiologists have advanced training in analyzing brain and spinal cord conditions and identifying abnormalities on tests.
Neurosurgery is a procedure performed by expert teams using advanced techniques to precisely locate, treat or remove targets inside the brain or spinal cord. Our neurosurgeons work exclusively in neuroscience surgical suites, which are designed to help them address previously inoperable conditions.
Our neurovascular team provides patients full access to a wide range of advanced diagnostic imaging services, including magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), positron emission tomography (PET) and electroencephalogram (EEG) testing.
To assist in the removal of brain tumors and deliver effective treatment for other neurological conditions, we established the intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) suite at HCA Virginia's Henrico Doctors' Hospital. Henrico Doctors’ Hospital is one of only 20 hospitals in the U.S. to provide this advanced surgical technology for your neurological care.
The need for spine surgery can be due to both neurological and orthopedic conditions. This is why HCA Virginia employs expert neurosurgeons and orthopedic surgeons specializing in spine care. Our surgeons can perform a variety of advanced spine surgeries, including pediatric spine surgery, spinal fusion and cervical disc surgery.
Neuroscience intensive care units
Depending on your condition or procedure, we may need to transfer you to a spacious, private room within one of our neuroscience intensive care units (ICUs) or step-down units for your recovery. In these units, you’ll benefit from advanced inpatient monitoring technology, which means a fast response, highly effective care and a quiet environment for healing.
