“I chose The Virginia Spine Institute because I knew I would receive the best spinal health care available. My physicians set me at ease right away and spent time to educate me on my treatment options. It is impossible to express my gratitude and appreciation for the care I received. From the physicians to the staff, the concern and compassion were genuine and heart-felt.”

“Before my treatment at The Virginia Spine Institute my mobility was very limited due to severe back pain. The most difficult part was not being able to hold or take care of my baby. My husband and parents had to assume all of my responsibilities. The injury did not just affect me, but my entire family as well. Thanks to VSI, I have my life back! My family and I are so grateful to have found them and the wonderful work they do!”

“I felt a pop in my back, then a sharp pain in my spine. I thought it was a muscle strain and that it would be better in the morning. For the next three years, the pain continued to develop. I simply could not take the pain any longer. The doctors at The Virginia Spine Institute gave me my life back! For the first time in three years I have hope for the future.”
“As a thirty-nine your old software engineer, I spent most of my time sitting in front of a computer. Over the course of time I started to experience severe pain in my back and right leg. The pain began to affect my life and I found it difficult to perform my daily activities… I even found it difficult to work. I tried physical therapy, medications and had even seen an orthopaedic surgeon for an evaluation and was told that nothing could be done. At that point the pain was so excruciating that I was unable to stand. When I arrived at The Virginia Spine Institute my physician was able to diagnose my condition. After carefully reviewing my options we decided to pursue surgery. Immediately after surgery, while in recovery, I noticed a difference in the pain in my low back and my leg pain was completely gone. Now I’m able to spend quality time with my family doing the things I love. I never thought I would be able to live pain free again! I’m so thankful that The Virginia Spine Institute was there for me.”
“The words thank you don’t even come close to telling you how much you have changed our lives for the better. In addition to my wife suffering for over three years with severe migraine headaches she had to endure numbness in her hands and the inability to feel with them. It’s a miracle how much better you have made her feel. Now that she is pain free it is possible for us to go places and have some fun every once in a while. You’ve given my wife and our life together a second chance; she knows when I’m holding her hand now. I’m so grateful to you and your staff. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.”

“It is with great pleasure that I write to further express my gratitude for your professional treatment of me before, during and after my recent surgery. It is indeed rare in these times for patient care to extend beyond the doors of a physician’s office or medical treatment facility. The simple courtesies that you and your staff provided to me gave the assurance of comfort I needed to get through my surgery and back to my professional and family responsibilities. Thank you again for your focused and professional treatment. Clearly, you and the staff at VSI are working hard to set a standard that few other medical providers can or are willing to do.”
“This letter is long overdue. I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you. I thought that you should know that 13 months and 3 days after you performed a two level fusion in my lower back I gave birth to a happy and healthy 7 pound baby girl. I had no back pain during my entire pregnancy and even my epidural worked during delivery! (for the most part). As you know my whole focus for having the back surgery was for pain relief and for the chance to try and get pregnant again. I just thought that you should know that my surgery was a COMPLETE success… all of my goals have now been reached! I just want to thank you and your staff for leading me through that difficult time and having such a happy outcome.”
“My family and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the care and support shown towards me before, during and after surgery. Before coming to VSI, I was told on many different occasions that nothing could be done to alleviate my pain – so essentially I lost hope. My days were filled with pain and the stress of not knowing what the future would bring. In my heart I felt like my wife had lost her husband and my daughter lost her father. Now, I can honestly say that because of my faith in God and especially the faith in you and your staff, the days that were filled with pain and uncertainty are behind me. Thank you for all that you have done for me, and most importantly, thank you for giving my family their husband and father back.”

“I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. For the last three to five years I lived in constant pain. If it wasn’t a migraine then there was always some sort of pain in my head. Chronic pain is terrible; it consumed me and the pain decided what my day was going to be like. I have not had a headache since you and your staff performed surgery on my neck. There is no way to put into words how you have helped me. So, I will just say thank you for all that I am. You are a wonderful surgeon and you should be very proud of what you do to help people like me.”

“I can't express enough my gratitude to The Virginia Spine Institute for healing me. My experience has been exceptional and it amazed me at how much care and attention I have received compared to all my other previous experiences with other doctors. I now see what it means and feels like to have a physician's office truly care about a person’s physical symptoms. Throughout my entire experience; from the office visits, to the surgery, then afterwards, I have felt as if I were the only patient being cared for; that’s how much attention was paid to my needs. Thank you to the ENTIRE staff. I've got my life back!”
