About me

Robert Bryan Mason, MD, is a board-certified neurosurgeon who performs surgery at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center.

As a member of the MedStar neurosurgery team, Dr. Mason performs brain and spinal surgeries on patients of all ages, but primarily adults. He came to MedStar Georgetown in 2008 from private practice in Minneapolis. Previously, he was at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., where he was chief of Neurosurgery.

Dr. Mason is a navy veteran who flew F-14s and served as a flight instructor before pursuing a medical career. Working with the intricacies of the brain and spine drew him to his specialty, and the opportunity to perform surgery on a wide variety of cases led him to MedStar Georgetown.

Dr. Mason still holds multiple pilots licenses and is a scuba instructor. In his free time, he also stays active running up to 150 miles a month, scuba diving and snow skiing.
