Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

The world-renowned surgeons at Texas Back Institute in the Dallas area have practiced minimally invasive cervical and lumbar spine surgery since the 1990s. Since our founding in 1977, we’ve focused intently on developing surgical techniques that produce the best possible outcomes for our patients and their families. When we talk about minimally invasive surgery, it’s not just a buzzword; it accomplishes the task through small incisions, causing less trauma to the muscles. It makes a difference in our patients’ lives, reducing recovery time and complications

Motion-Preserving Disc Replacement

An innovative alternative to traditional spine fusion surgery, disc replacement surgery replaces the damaged disc with a prosthesis that allows the patient to retain a normal range of motion. A fusion permanently joins the vertebrae that sit above and below a damaged intervertebral disc, restricting movement. Compared to a fusion, disc replacement also typically enables patients to return more quickly to their families and reduces the risk of needing additional surgery. Texas Back Institute surgeons were the first to perform lumbar disc replacement in the US in 2000, and are recognized experts on cervical and lumbar arthroplasty. We have performed thousands of disc replacements, and implanted more than a dozen types of artificial discs, establishing ourselves as a leader in artificial disc surgery.

Conditions we can treat with disc replacements include:

  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Herniated discs
  • Chronic discogenic pain
