Once again, Virginia Spine Institute is honored to receive national recognition, as two of our Spinal Specialists were highlighted in Becker’s Spine Review recently published list of “326 Spine Surgeons to Know.” Dr. Schuler and Dr. Good received high accolades among their peers because of their dedication to pioneering innovative surgical techniques.
Thomas Schuler, MD, FACS. In 1992, Dr. Schuler founded Virginia Spine Institute, where he currently serves as the CEO. Dr. Schuler completed his spinal surgery fellowship at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles. He is a fellow of the American College of Spine Surgery, American College of Surgeons and American College of Orthopaedic Surgery. Dr. Schuler is the president of Spinal Research Foundation, and serves as a spine consultant to the Washington Redskins.
Christopher Good, MD. Dr. Good is the director of scoliosis and spinal deformity as well as director of research at Virginia Spine Institute. He recently performed the first robot-guided sacroiliac joint fusion surgery in North America and was one of the first physicians in Virginia to explore genetic counseling for adolescent scoliosis. He has completed advanced training in adult and pediatric spinal surgery at Washington University School of Medicine, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, St. Louis Children’s Hospital and Shriners Hospital for Children, all based in St. Louis.
