Brian R. Subach, MD, FACS
As a double board-certified neurosurgeon and complex spine surgeon, Brian R. Subach MD, FACS has been named one of America’s top doctors by Castle Connolly and Becker’s Healthcare. He has a unique perspective on the progressive degenerative changes that affect the spine, advanced interventions in pain management, and the benefits of intravenous supplementation.
Dr. Subach attended medical school at the University of Michigan, and completed a seven-year neurosurgery residency at the University of Pittsburgh followed by a fellowship in Complex Spinal Surgery at the Emory Clinic. He holds a functional medicine certification in Age Management Medicine. He has been in practice for the past 18 years and is set apart from his peers by his surgical technique, his alternative, holistic approach to managing pain, and his ability to address the underlying causes of their disease.
“There is a difference between masking the symptoms and actually fixing the problem,” Dr. Subach says.
While new technological advances continue to dramatically change the treatment of back issues, Dr. Subach prefers to take a deliberate approach. “I move cautiously until I can see a clear benefit,” he says.
Finding himself on the other side of the scalpel has brought Dr. Subach a new perspective. “In 2012, I underwent open heart surgery for endocarditis,” he says. “It was certainly a challenge for me, both mentally and physically, to return to the operating room.” The experience has strengthened his commitment to his patients.
The event also had a profound influence on Dr. Subach’s philosophy of life. “I would advise others to enjoy the process,” he says. “Prioritize and commit to both personal and professional growth while being grateful for life’s blessings. Onward and upward!”
