Established in 2006, DISC has quickly risen to global prominence and is cited by many as the gold standard in medicine. Featuring one of the nation’s most technologically advanced outpatient surgical centers, alongside next-generation diagnostics, non-surgical conservative care, pain management and rehabilitation, DISC was founded upon a commitment to provide an unmatched continuity of care in order to help patients restore motion and function for a rapid return to an active lifestyle.

Message from DISC Founder Dr. Robert S. Bray Jr.
“Continuing a 20-year career in private practice, I established DISC Sports & Spine Center with the single goal of offering a new model of medical services for spinal care, orthopaedics and sports medicine. After developing hospital-based spinal programs at many of the city’s local facilities, I became convinced that a comprehensive system, greatly extending the standard of care currently available could be accomplished with the correct group of physicians, nurses and support staff all working together with the latest advances in technology. Combining a robust set of diagnostic and conservative care treatment options with our ultra-clean highly advanced outpatient surgical center, we have achieved this model with DISC. I am both proud and honored to lead the DISC team in our quest to set a new gold standard in ambulatory medicine and patient care.”
