Texas Neuro-Spine Surgery is committed to providing patients with minimally-invasive spine treatment for the best results. When you come to our office, we’ll have a conversation and listen to your concerns. After thoroughly understanding your issues, you’ll receive recommendations and the reasoning for each.
The best treatment for back and neck pain is different for each patient. Every treatment option is tailored based on your needs. The goal is to find a minimally invasive spine treatment that provides the best results for you individually. Occasionally, some cases require more extensive treatment or surgery. Fortunately, most problems we see don’t need surgery. Some are solved with physical therapy and other non-invasive treatments.
