Ruz Toussi, D.O., MPH

Specialties

OrthoVirginia Offices

Dr. Ruz Toussi is board-certified in both anesthesiology and pain management. He chose pain management because living with daily pain can impact a person’s mental health, ability to work, and overall health. He believes a successful pain management physician improves not only a person’s pain but also their overall quality of life. Dr. Toussi enjoys the challenges of identifying the source of pain and finding the best treatment options. The field of pain management is relatively young and growing, so he is excited to continue learning the best new treatments to offer. In his free time, he enjoys trying new hobbies and has recently got into hunting and skeet shooting. He also enjoys traveling to sunny places. At home the nerd in him comes out and he spends his time looking for the next best science fiction show or movie.
