Why Dr. Chris Michael is a Top Spine Surgeon in Dallas

What His Patients are Saying:

“I had the best experience at Texas Neurosurgery with both Dr. Michael and his staff. Dr. Michael takes the time to explain your diagnosis, go over your treatment options, and answers any questions. He was extremely thorough with explaining my diagnosis and I felt confident with my treatment plan and surgery decision. I would recommend him to family and friends who were thinking about getting back surgery. I already feel so much better 6 weeks after surgery! Also, the schedulers and other staff in the office are extremely helpful and easy to work with.” -Jessie G.

Patient Testimonials

After steroids, physical therapy and many other things to help cope; my body literally gave up on me & I was no longer able to walk much less move without being in pain. I decided to go ahead with the emergency spinal surgery. I was so scared and nervous, when Dr. Michael introduced himself I immediately began to cry. He helped ease my worries, checked in with me before and after the surgery. His P.A. was also amazing! I am back to my old self & finally enjoying physical activities with my kids!
