Pacific Northwest Spine is a work in progress. The Pacific Northwest Spine was founded in 2011 by Gus Varnavas, MD, a board-certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon. The goal is to create a regional referral center for back and neck pain for the Yakima Valley of Central Washington State that ultimately includes non-surgical spine specialists and spine therapists along with surgeons. While Dr. Varnavas is referred neurosurgical cases from the Yakima Valley region, he specializes in spine care. For example, the spine center emphasizes non-surgical treatment options like spinal injections and spine-specialized therapy in advance of spine surgery. But if spine surgery is necessary, Dr. Varnavas is able to provide minimally invasive spine surgery to reduce the length of the incision and speed return to activity with a less painful recovery. Their goal is to provide an excellent treatment option for those with back pain or neck pain so they no longer have to drive to Seattle or Portland for top quality spine care. Now isn’t that a welcome relief?

  • Motto: “A multi-disciplinary team approach for spine care”
  • Founded: 2011
  • Led By: Dr. Gus Varnavas
  • Why They’re Unique: A nonsurgical approach to back and neck pain
  • They Can Answer Questions Relating to: Spine problems, spinal deformity, stenosis, spinal tumor, nonsurgical care
