Northern Virginia Magazine Names Virginia Spine Institute Specialists, Top Doctors 2016

February 5, 2016


Virginia Spine Institute is honored to have our nationally-recognized Spine Surgeons included in Northern Virginia Magazine’s Top Doctors 2016. Congratulations to Dr. Schuler and Dr. Good on this notable accomplishment. Dr. Schuler and Dr. Good were listed in both “Spine Surgery” and “Orthopaedic Surgery”. Northern Virginia Magazine recognizes the region’s best physicians through peer nominations and a panel of head doctors in local hospitals. Using internal tools including evaluations, patient reviews, and overall quality of care, the list was inclusive of 1,048 doctors spanning 49 specialties.


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! Watch his video documentary, “Role Reversal.”


Dr. Good specializes in the non-operative and operative treatment of spinal deformities. His expertise extends to all types of cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine care ranging from acute conditions to degenerative conditions and complex revisions to unsuccessful prior surgeries. His dedication to returning his patients back to their lifestyles safely and effectively has him using the latest techniques in spinal reconstruction as well as advanced skills in minimally invasive and motion-preserving surgery.

His most recent breakthrough in spinal health care was the first robot-guided surgery in the mid-Atlantic region. In addition to the latest techniques in spinal reconstruction, Dr. Good is also advanced in minimally-invasive and motion-preserving surgery.
