Today, over 90,000 people are living with an improved quality of life as a result of receiving the most innovative care at Virginia Spine Institute. Our concierge approach is designed to take care of you in a time of medical crisis. We will seamlessly coordinate all of the necessary components and details: from your initial consultation, handling insurance claims, creating your customized treatment plan, and through your post-treatment care. You will receive the highest level of interdisciplinary care (specialists working together under one roof for your benefit). This model has surpassed the level of care delivered by other institutional medical centers and large hospital systems for nearly three decades.
Watch as our founder and pioneer in spinal healthcare, Dr. Thomas Schuler, shares insight on the power of modern technology and advances in surgical techniques that have improved the lives of millions of people suffering from spinal conditions. No two journeys are the same, and for this reason, each patient receives individualized time and attention, as well as a unique treatment plan to get them back to an improved quality of life!
At Virginia Spine Institute, we believe that surgery is not always the first answer. In fact, 90% of our patients are successfully treated without surgery. This philosophy is embodied by all of four of our surgeons who initially utilize modern non-surgical methods for our patients. These treatment options include spine-specialized physical therapy, regenerative medicine (natural healing), osteopathic medicine, injections, acupuncture, and therapeutic exercise programs.
