Award-Winning Spine Care


We are proud to be recognized by Healthgrades as a five-star program for spinal surgery.

Comprehensive spine care

Our spine care team includes specialists in bone and joint, neurological care and pain management, as well as physiatrists, anesthesiologists and family practitioners. This group works together to develop a personalized treatment plan for you. We also collaborate with nurse navigators and case managers to make sure you have support every step of the way.

Advanced imaging tools

Effective treatment starts with a precise diagnosis. That's why we use advanced imaging tools to help us identify your pain and develop the most appropriate treatment plan. Some of our spine imaging tools include:

  • 3 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • Open MRI
  • Large-opening computed tomography (CT) scanner

Robotic spine surgery

Our renowned spine surgeons are leaders in advanced spinal surgery and are always working to improve the field. In fact, we were the first hospital in Virginia to use a state-of-the-art guidance system for minimally invasive robotic spine surgery. Our hospital also offers a visiting clinician program where our spine surgeons teach best practices and new techniques to surgeons from around the world.

Minimally invasive and robotic surgeries use smaller incisions and cause less trauma to muscles and tissues. This process leads to shorter operations, less pain and a faster recovery. Many patients go home within a day or two.

Augmented Reality (AR) Guided Spine Surgery at Reston Hospital Center

Reston Hospital Center is now offering a groundbreaking augmented reality (AR) guidance system that allows spine surgeons to “see through” a patient’s anatomy as if they have “x-ray vision.” The system is the first AR guidance system to be used in surgery and is currently approved for use in open and minimally invasive spine implant procedures.

Similar to a real-time GPS, this “see-through” surgery lets surgeons know exactly where to place implants in a patient’s unique anatomy, and is bringing a new standard of personalization and care to the operating room. This advanced technology used at Reston Hospital Center allows surgeons to maintain their focus directly on the patient, rather than on a distant screen displaying the patient’s anatomy.

Center for Scoliosis and Spinal Deformities

The Center for Scoliosis and Spinal Deformities at Reston Hospital Center specializes in the care and treatment of complex scoliosis and spinal deformity conditions. Our team approach provides seamlessly coordinated care by top specialists and support services for patients with lifelong or evolving deformities. Bringing together nationally recognized doctors, innovative technology and break-through treatment options, we offer accessible, individualized care in one location.

Spine rehabilitation

Our on-site physical therapy and rehabilitation facility offers inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. Here, our experienced rehab teams create a therapy plan tailored to your specific condition.

Your doctor may prescribe spine rehab as treatment for back pain before suggesting surgery. They may also prescribe it as therapy after spine surgery. If you have spine surgery, we will begin rehabilitation the same day as surgery or as soon as you are ready to promote a healthy recovery.
