About Us

Leading the Nation in Spine Care

Virginia Spine Institute has pioneered life-changing solutions that have helped millions of patients around the world improve their quality of life. Thirty years ago, Virginia Spine Institute was founded to provide exceptional spine care for people suffering from life-altering spine conditions. The vision was to create the ultimate spine center, out of the necessity to provide life-changing care for those impacted by back and neck pain.

Over the last three decades, we have improved the lives of over 100,000 people traveling from all 50 states and over 32 countries. Our model is effective, and our philosophy is unique: 90% of our patients get better without surgery. This shared philosophy across 100+ team members sets us apart from other centers and hospital systems.

While Virginia Spine Institute started as a sole physician institute, we have strategically expanded to an interdisciplinary team of the top spine specialists in the world. We are proud to have earned international recognition through our surgical firsts, nonsurgical breakthroughs, life-changing research, and five-star patient outcomes.

Through quality spine surgery, regenerative medicine, and spine-specialized physical therapy, we have created a destination where patients can improve their lives!
