Faisal Siddiqui, MD, FACS, is a board-certified and highly-skilled spine surgeon with more than 15 years of experience performing minimally invasive spine surgeries. He has helped thousands of patients find relief from back pain with safe, effective surgical treatments. He currently works at The Spine Care Center in Manassas, where he uses his expertise to help patients find relief for their back pain.
Originally from Ohio, Dr. Siddiqui earned his medical degree from Vanderbilt Medical School, where he graduated with honors. He completed a residency in orthopedic surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital at the University of Rochester Medical Center, where he was recognized as Resident of the Year and given the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation humanitarian award.
After residency, Dr. Siddiqui sought out additional specialty training in spine surgery. He completed his fellowship training at the Charlotte Spine Center at Carolinas Medical Center. During his fellowship, he learned how to treat back pain and injuries by using the most minimally invasive surgical procedures possible.
In 2007, Dr. Siddiqui joined The Spine Care Center in Manassas. He and Dr. Bassam imbued the practice with the principle that surgery should only be used for patients who have no other choices for meaningful pain relief. Before deciding to operate on a patient, Dr. Siddiqui ensures they are a good candidate for surgery and that the surgery can be performed safely with minimal risk. Patients are more likely to experience lasting pain relief, less risk of infection and blood loss, and faster recovery times as a result of his minimally invasive techniques. His careful approach to spinal care helps all of his patients receive the most effective and least invasive treatment for their painful condition.
Dr. Siddiqui’s specialized training has also allowed him to bring new procedures to the Washington, D.C. area. He was one of the first surgeons in northern Virginia to perform the minimally invasive TranS1® and Extreme Lateral Interbody Fusion (XLIF) spinal fusion procedures using computer-assisted navigation. During his career, he has performed thousands of procedures, ranging from complex 10-hour surgeries for traumatic spine injuries to 45-minute minimally invasive endoscopic procedures. He is dedicated to a lifetime of learning and continues to undergo additional training to give his patients access to the latest, groundbreaking surgeries.
Dr. Siddiqui is a recognized expert in spine surgery and has been repeatedly awarded Top Doctor distinctions from both Washingtonian magazine and Northern Virginia Magazine. Throughout his career, he has had original orthopedic and spine surgery research published in numerous peer-reviewed medical journals. He also routinely gives lectures to other physicians and medical professionals on minimally invasive spine surgery and has trained multiple physicians in the D.C. area to perform the latest procedures in the field.
In his free time, Dr. Siddiqui enjoys being with his wife and two children. His hobbies include golfing and skiing.
