Dr. Gus Varnavas

Treating back and neck pain in Central Washington

Gus Varnavas, MD, is a board-certified, fellowship-trained neurosurgeon. In 2010, Dr. Varnavas founded Pacific Northwest Spine in Yakima which evolved into a regional referral center for back pain, neck pain and complex spine surgery cases for Central Washington State. In 2014, Dr. Varnavas relocated his spine practice 90 miles north to Wenatchee Valley and joined Wenatchee Valley Medical Center, part of Confluence Health. Dr. Varnavas specializes in spine surgery and in particular cervical spine surgery (neck surgery). He emphasizes a broad spectrum of treatment options for the person with back pain or neck pain, including non-surgical options like spinal injections and spine-specialized therapy in advance of spine surgery. 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. Consequently, patients no longer have to drive to Seattle or Portland for top quality spine care.
