Board Certified, American Board of Orthopedic Surgery
Minimally Invasive Surgical Spine Specialist

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.

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 using the most minimally invasive surgical procedures possible.

In 2007, Dr. Siddiqui joined The Spine Care Center in Manassas. He and Dr. Bassam founded the practice on 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 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 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 D.C. area. He was one of the first surgeons in northern Virginia to perform the minimally invasive Trans1 and Xlif spinal fusion procedures using computer-assisted navigation. During his career, he has performed thousands of procedures, 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 his free time, Dr. Siddiqui enjoys being with his wife and two children. His hobbies include golfing and skiing.

I am so glad I came here. Without going into details I had a very difficult morning when another doctor wouldn’t see me. I called my insurance company they gave me this office. I really needed to be seen that day because my husband took off work. You all took us as a walk in and from the front desk to the doctor, I felt cared for! Thank you!

From the moment I walked in until the moment I walked out I felt this was the most professional group of people I have ever dealt with. I would travel 100 miles to deal with them from receptionist, to doctor, to nurse, to check out. They are perfect!!

A surgeon who actually talks to you, not at you, who really listens, genuinely cares, and looks for solutions to a difficult case with care. Impossible to find you say? NOT if it is Dr. Siddiqui! He is all that and more. I am one lucky patient! Sohail, his Physician Assistant, is a mirror image of Dr. Siddiqui.

I liked the fact that he took the time to answer my questions and address my concerns. Upon leaving the office that day I felt that Dr. Siddiqui would use his expertise to "fix" my problem the best he could. His competent manner gave me confidence that I would be better.

I have spent the majority of my professional career working with a large medical practice, so I’m well knowledgeable about all aspects of a practice. I admit I can be very judgmental. Having such high expectations, your practice has definitely met my HIGHEST expectations.
