Dr. David Goss has been extensively trained in a vast array of surgical and non-surgical techniques, to treat all spinal disorders and injuries.

During a class project in junior high school, here in Hampton Roads, Dr. Goss followed an orthopaedic doctor for a day, discovering a career path that would lead him around the world and back again. After completing studies at the University of Virginia, he pursued this career path via an orthopaedic residency at Dartmouth Medical Center. A fellowship in Spinal Disorders in South Australia followed, as did Army Reserve time.

During his fellowship, he indulged several research interests, including prevention and treatment of discitis, and evaluation of anterior interbody fusion devices. He participated in international research trials evaluating the effectiveness of both intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET), and total disc replacement in the management of lower back pain and neck pain.

His professional interest covers all aspects of spinal disorders and injuries, including degenerative and traumatic disorders of the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine, scoliosis, infection, and spinal deformity.
