Destination Medicine

Seamlessly coordinated spine care in a place designed to feel a little more like home.

Every year, patients from across the United States and 30+ countries travel to Virginia Spine Institute for spine care they haven’t been able to find elsewhere. Our patients receive a timely diagnosis and seamlessly-coordinated specialized care in a place designed to feel a little more like home. Because patients are traveling away from home, we make the process easy for patients and their families. Upon your arrival to our state-of-the-art facility, you will have access to the top specialists in spinal surgery, non-surgical treatment, neurology, regenerative medicine, pain management, and spine-specialized physical therapy. Rest assured, we will do everything we can to make your process as smooth as possible and deliver the most effective results.

Our concierge experience is designed to take care of you in a time of medical crisis. We will coordinate all of the necessary components of your experience; from the first teleconsultation to your accommodations, and through the final check-up with your surgeon. Our exceptional patient care goes hand-in-hand with our surgical expertise. Leading the world in the use of technology, our surgeons have improved safety and precision in surgical procedures. In fact, our surgeons were the first in the world to utilize the most advanced robotic guidance system (Mazor X™ Stealth Edition) to perform complex spine surgery. This technology has proven to reduce the length of hospital stay, as well as improve recovery time for the patient, getting them back home faster!
