Brian R. Subach, M.D., F.A.C.S., F.A.A.N.S.
Named one of America’s Top Doctors (as featured in American Airlines Magazine), Dr. Subach has extensive training in both spinal neurosurgery and spinal surgery to care for patients with neck and back conditions such as pinched nerves, herniated discs, and spinal stenosis. Through his leadership as President of Virginia Spine Institute, Dr. Subach is pioneering the latest surgical techniques that improve patient safety and reduces recovery time. These techniques include minimally invasive spine surgery, robot-guided spine surgery, and ultrasonic spine surgery. As an alternative to a traditional spinal fusion, Dr. Subach leverages the use of artificial disc in order to preserve the range of motion in the neck and back.
As a former NCAA athlete in both football and lacrosse, Dr. Subach understands the drive to overcome pain and return to life as quickly as possible. He collaborates with patients to understand their goals for recovery, combining revolutionary medical advances from multiple disciplines. This includes physical therapy, regenerative medicine, pain management, and surgical intervention, resulting in the most effective treatment plan customized for each patient.
To remain on the forefront of spinal healthcare, Dr. Subach currently holds the position of Chief Scientific Officer and Board Member for the Spinal Research Foundation (a national 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization). Additionally, he lends his thought leadership in advancing spinal health care as he serves as Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of the Spinal Research Foundation.
