Becker's Spine Review recently reached out to Dr. Schuler and Dr. Subach to discuss their top priorities for 2017. Both spinal surgeons will be speakers at the Becker's 15th Annual Spine, Orthopedic and Pain Management-Driven ASC + The Future of Spine event in Chicago, June 22 to 24, 2017.

Thomas Schuler, MD. Virginia Spine Institute (Reston):
"My top concern is preserving patient access to appropriate spinal treatments. There are many obstacles that prevent doctors and their patients from determining what is the best treatment for that patient's unique condition and situation. Organized medicine is not doing enough to help our patients access the best and most appropriate treatments."
Brian Subach, MD. Virginia Spine Institute (Reston):
"My top priority as a spinal surgeon in 2017 remains the delivery of outstanding patient care. With the time constraints placed on physicians, the ones who suffer are the patients. They are shuffled from pain management providers to surgeons to physical therapists, without ever really understanding their problem. Many have never even seen their MRI scans or X-rays. Define the care plan in clear terms, and when surgery is called for, perform the procedure with unparalleled excellence."
