With over 40 years of experience, Texas Back Institute continues to lead the way in spine care.

From its beginning in 1977, the goal to perform as a high level multi-disciplinary, academic spine center, integrating the best of science and education with the best business practices has served Texas Back Institute well and continues to be the backbone of TBI’s success. Over forty years later, Texas Back Institute is one of the largest freestanding multidisciplinary academic spine centers in the world and is dedicated to providing superior and innovative care for patients who suffer from back and neck pain.

With the “Surgery as a Last Option” Approach, the providers at Texas Back Institute believe surgery is not always the best course of treatment.  This has been the cornerstone of our care philosophy.  Approximately 88% of our patients are treated successfully without surgical intervention.

Patient education is an important component in the overall treatment of neck and back pain.  At TBI we believe a well-educated patient has more consistent success in physical improvements and overall recovery.

TBI follows evidence-based protocols, we have a national and international presence, effective quality care program, leadership roles in major spine societies, strong accountability as a result of our outcomes reporting, a spine-focused psychological program and we do a lot of research.

With locations throughout the DFW Metroplex, we are easily accessible to patients where they live and work.

Patient satisfaction is one of the primary tenets of the Texas Back Institute.  We ask for feedback from all of our patients.  We consistently score in the 90th percentile in all areas of patient care.

Texas Back Institute is dedicated to your spine health and wellness!

About Us

Multidisciplinary Spine Surgery Center Serving Patients in Dallas, TX – Texas Back Institute

Texas Back Institute evaluates patients from Dallas, Texas, and across the globe, enabling anyone with severe neck or back pain to receive treatment from our world-renowned team. Known as leaders in advanced spinal procedures, our surgeons specialize in using minimally invasive techniques that greatly reduce the impact of surgery on the body. As a result, our patients commonly enjoy more predictable surgical outcomes, faster recovery times, and a quicker return to work and hobbies than they would experience with traditional spinal surgery.

However, because we reserve surgery as a last resort, we’ll first seek to provide pain relief through conservative treatments such as physical therapy and pain management. In fact, thanks to our skilled physical therapists, physicians, and other specialists, only 10 percent of our patients ever undergo surgery.

If non-surgical treatments fail to provide significant pain relief and surgery is recommended, patients from Dallas, TX, and elsewhere who undergo minimally invasive spine surgery at Texas Back Institute will benefit from our:


As a spine center that has treated patients since 1977, Texas Back Institute has some of the most knowledgeable and experienced surgeons in the world.


Our surgeons use robotics, intraoperative CT imaging systems, computer-assisted navigation, and other state-of-the-art technology to perform spine surgery with enhanced precision.


Because we regularly perform advanced procedures that few other spine centers offer – such as lumbar and cervical disc replacements and robotic spinal surgery – we offer  spine surgery options to address the specific problems our patients face.
