Dr. Brian R. Subach, MD

Neurosurgery | Male | 49 years old

'It has always been my primary goal to get patients back to their families, their lives, and their jobs as quickly as possible when spinal problems arise. In doing so, I have realized that patience and a non-operative approach is usually most effective. After examining you and reviewing your studies, I will try to give you both a clear diagnosis of your problem and an understandable therapeutic plan. If you and I decide that surgery is the only remaining option, as a neurosurgeon and spinal surgeon, I will make every effort to ensure that both the decision and the actual surgery are as painless as possible. I, along with my partners at the Virginia Spine Institute, have been able to combine our expertise and extensive training in both neurosurgery and orthopaedic surgery to offer you the most up to date treatment modalities and surgical interventions available today.'Read more

His thorough staff was kind, patient, and knowledgeable. After a bad experience with a previous neurosurgeon we found Dr. Subach via recommendation. He took the time to explain everything to our satisfaction and we left there confident that we were receiving the very best care. What a nice change.

I recently had major spinal reconstrution and my GWU neurosurgeon moved back to Seattle. I went through all the process of booking an appointment and was told because my Medicare was the disability type they would NOT see me! Nice, Whatever happened to Do no harm? Are we supposed to take second best?
