Reston Hospital Center

The Virginia Institute of Robotic Surgery at Reston Hospital Center has acquired a second Mazor X System for their rapidly growing spine program, making it the first in the nation to have two of these robotic systems at one hospital location.

The Reston Hospital Center (RHC) Spine Team is comprised of nationally-recognized spine surgeons who excel in implementing the latest in surgical advancements for spinal procedures. One of the first in the country to acquire and use Mazor Technology in 2012, RHC, in collaboration with its surgeons, has been a pioneer in using advanced technology and procedures in the operating room.

In 2016, the facility was the first in the Mid-Atlantic to acquire and perform a procedure using the latest Mazor X platform. More than 1,500 spine surgeries are performed annually at RHC, with over 600 of these procedures utilizing the advanced technology of the Mazor X system, offering patients an advanced, minimally invasive surgical option for the spine.

“Providing our surgeons with the technology and resources they need to keep our surgical program at the forefront of innovation means that our patients receive the most advanced care in the safest environment,” said John Deardorff, CEO of Reston Hospital Center and President of HCA’s Northern Virginia Market. “As a leader in spine surgery we are committed to delivering exceptional care and the best possible outcomes for our patients.”

Reston Hospital Center is one of only eight Visiting Clinician Programs (VCP) in the United States where surgeons from around the world come to train on the latest in Mazor technology.  The VCP gives surgeons the opportunity to learn about the latest in robotic-assisted spine surgery capabilities from the proctoring surgeon, Dr. Christopher Good of the Virginia Spine Institute. In addition to the surgical training, surgeons also learn how a comprehensive robotic surgical program runs from an operational and administrative perspective.
