Are the surgeons here “knife happy?” Do I have to sign up for surgery? How do I know that my treatment is “state of the art?”

Our philosophy is to perform the smallest intervention possible that has a good likelihood of improving a patient’s current condition. Most of the time this consists of non-surgical treatment. Neurological Surgery Specialists of North Texas clinic has formulated an excellent program of physical therapy, medical management, and localized injections. When surgery is indicated, we make a focused effort to perform the smallest surgery possible. We utilize minimally invasive techniques and the newest technologies to preserve a patients range of motion and activity level. We are committed to getting our patients back to their optimal quality of life. Extensive fusions and spinal screw instrumentation are performed only when necessary for a handful of cases.
