Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery in Dallas, TX
At Texas Back Institute in Dallas, Texas, we don’t simply use minimally invasive spine surgery as a marketing tool – instead, our surgeons’ approach to minimally invasive surgery truly makes a difference in our patients’ lives. Since our founding in 1977, we’ve focused intently on developing surgical techniques that produce the best possible outcomes for our patients. We’ve published and presented more studies about evidence-based spine treatments than virtually any other spine center in the country, and our world-renowned surgeons in the Dallas, TX, area have practiced minimally invasive cervical and lumbar spine surgery since the 1990s, so we have an unparalleled ability to evaluate surgical techniques and determine what works.
Our surgeons often use robotics, intraoperative CT imaging systems, and computer-assisted navigation that help us specifically address the source of a patient’s neck or back pain without affecting healthy tissue or unrelated parts of the spine. As a result, our patients experience:
- Faster recovery times
- Reduced risk of complications
- Faster return to work, sports, and other hobbies
To perform these surgeries in such as precise fashion, we must first fully understand the cause of a patient’s pain, so we’ll thoroughly review a patient’s medical history, imaging results, and diagnostic tests before we recommend surgical treatment. Before many surgeries, a nine-doctor, peer-review committee will meet to evaluate the proposed treatment plan, so a patient will receive multiple expert opinions without having to separately visit numerous surgeons. However, in many cases we find that surgery isn’t necessary to address neck and back pain, and that conservative, non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy can yield beneficial results. In fact, fewer than 10 percent of our patients ever require surgery to experience pain relief.

Motion-Preserving Disc Replacement for Patients in Dallas, TX
Texas Back Institute’s Center for Disc Replacement provides patients in Dallas, Texas, and all nearby areas with an innovative alternative to traditional spine fusion surgery. While a fusion would permanently join the vertebrae that sit above and below a damaged intervertebral disc, restricting movement, our surgeons can replace the damaged disc with a prosthesis that allows the patient to retain a normal range of motion. Compared to a fusion, disc replacement also typically enables patients to return more quickly to their regular lives and reduces the risk of needing additional surgery.
Known for performing groundbreaking surgical procedures, Texas Back Institute completed the first artificial disc replacement in the U.S. in 2000. Since then, we’ve performed thousands of disc replacements, and have installed more than a dozen types of artificial discs, establishing ourselves as a leader in artificial disc surgery.
Some of the conditions we can treat with disc replacements include:
To discuss whether you would benefit from artificial disc surgery, visit Texas Back Institute in the Dallas, TX, area for an evaluation of your medical history, a physical examination, and any necessary diagnostic tests. Because we always reserve surgery as a last resort, we’ll seek to achieve pain relief first through conservative treatments such as physical therapy and pain management. If severe pain persists and it is determined that you would benefit from surgery, we can help you determine whether artificial disc replacement is right for you.
