Colin M. Haines, M.D.

Spinal Surgeon

Hailing from the Cleveland Clinic, Dr. Haines joins the interdisciplinary spine-specialized team at Virginia Spine Institute to provide progressive treatment solutions for complex scoliosis patients, and degenerative neck and back conditions that get patients back to a pain-free lifestyle more quickly. He works collaboratively with in-house pain management specialists and physical therapists to provide the most comprehensive treatment plans and improved post-operative recovery. Recognized as the region’s Top Doctor, Dr. Haines’ treatment offerings extend to the latest non-operative treatments in the form of stem cell therapy, which utilizes the patient's own tissue to naturally stimulate healing. 

His ambition to become a physician began at a young age and was solidified when he suffered a lumbar disc herniation. After undergoing successful non-operative treatment, he was back on his feet and profoundly impacted by the process of healing. This experience fueled his desire to personally connect with patients, working together to create a tailored treatment plan that will achieve their goals for recovery.

Positioned on the forefront of spinal advancements, Dr. Haines promotes motion preservation through the use of cervical disc replacements and is a current participant in an FDA trial for cervical disc replacements. His expertise in minimally invasive surgical techniques improves patient safety and reduces recovery time. These techniques include robot-guided spine surgery and ultrasonic spine surgery.

To continue to bring the most advanced treatment options to his patients, Dr. Haines is an active leader in spinal research.  In addition to numerous textbook chapters and publications in peer reviewed journals, he is a frequent presenter at national and international conferences. This includes the first study investigation of Major League Baseball players with a common lumbar spine injury.

Fun Facts!

Dr. Haines enjoys traveling, working out, and spending time with his wife and daughter.
