Samuel F. Luebbert, MD

About

Many of Dr. Samuel Luebbert’s patients just want to be able to do tasks that were once simple like going for a walk without experiencing debilitating pain.

“No one should have to live with chronic pain,” he said. “Being able to give patients their lives back is what I find most rewarding about my job. ...Ultimately I want to make my patients’ lives better.”

After completing his fellowship in pain medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University, Dr. Luebbert joined the National Spine and Pain Centers in summer 2020.

While earning his bachelor’s degree in biology from the University of Virginia, Dr. Luebbert was a volunteer at the school’s hospital in the Digestive Health Center and Surgical Admissions Suite. He also served more than 120 hours as an Emergency Medical Technician in Virginia Beach and as an undergraduate research assistant in the university’s Biological Research Laboratory.

During his Doctor of Medicine studies at the University of Virginia School of Medicine, Dr. Luebbert was a clinical research assistant in the Molecular Transplant Research Laboratory and the Department of Anesthesiology. He completed his internship/anesthesiology residency at the Medical University of South Carolina.

Dr. Luebbert was mainly drawn to the pain management and anesthesiology field because he found treating patients’ pain to be extremely rewarding. “Chronic pain is one of the biggest reasons patients go see their doctor and it’s frequently undertreated,” he said. “Reducing chronic pain can dramatically change patients’ lives and I am glad I can provide that service.”

He is excited by the advancements in neuromodulation including both spinal cord and peripheral nerve stimulation technologies.

When coming up with an individualized treatment plan, Dr. Luebbert knows that medications are a crucial part of the therapy plan to treat chronic pain for many patients. “My goal is to provide a pain medication regimen that will effectively reduce pain while limiting adverse side effects,” he said.

Communication is key, according to Dr. Luebbert, when it comes to patient-centered care. “Medicine is increasingly complex and it’s crucial that doctors explain the pros and cons of therapies to patients in a way they understand,” he said. “It is important that doctors provide patients with different therapy options.”

In his downtime, Dr. Luebbert enjoys reading, hiking, swimming, and skiing. With a passion for capturing images, he hopes to improve his skills in photography.

    The staff at the [...] location is exceptional in every way. The office staff are efficient and caring. The Pain Management Doctor was excellent. He ensured that I was experiencing minimal pain during my procedure. Though new to this office he was familiar with my history and took his time to explain the procedure, answer any questions and made sure I understood expectations post procedure.
