Dr. Schuler was selected in the category of "Orthopaedic Surgery" and Dr. Good was listed in both "Orthopaedic Surgery" and "Spine Surgery."

About Dr. Thomas Schuler: 

Dr. Schuler founded Virginia Spine Institute in 1992 to advance the development of contemporary neurological and orthopaedic spinal surgery. His knowledge, drive and innovative techniques have revolutionized spinal healthcare in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. Over the past two decades, he has grown our award-winning medical practice into the largest multidisciplinary spinal practice in the region.

In addition to performing the first hybrid multi-level cervical artificial disc replacement with fusion in the country, he has first-hand experience of this procedure from the patient perspective. After suffering from severe neck pain, disc herniations, and nerve compression, Dr. Schuler successfully underwent a hybrid procedure to treat four levels of his spine and is fully recovered and back to his life, pain free!
