At , we are committed to focusing on the needs, challenges and solutions for each unique patient. Our practice is centered around providing the highest quality care to every person who walks into our office. Texas Neurosurgery works both with you and your primary care doctor to explore all of your options and develop a treatment plan. If your spine needs attention, the ideal approach may be a straightforward, outpatient microdiscectomy or a spinal fusion. In other cases, it may only require conservative care involving physical therapy, with no surgery necessary. For people with brain tumors or other lesions, we take the time to explain the condition to you and your family and discuss various treatment options. Our commitment is unwavering: We provide you with a complete understanding of your condition and offer you the best and most personalized care possible.
