What is a “Neurosurgeon and Back Surgery”? A neurosurgeon is a doctor who specializes in surgery of the head, spine and peripheral nerves. Sometimes a neurosurgeon will sub-specialize in an area such as spine surgery and peripheral nerve surgery. Back surgery or neck surgery consists of a surgical procedure on the spine. It can be an open procedure or a minimally invasive surgery. It is important to find a neurosurgeon who specializes in this type of surgery.
Texas Spine and Neurosurgery is a neurosurgical practice which specializes in the coordination of both surgical and conservative treatment options. We treat herniated discs, spinal stenosis, radiculopathy, spondylolisthesis, spondylosis, pars defects, spinal fractures, back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, and many other disorders of the spine and nerves. We are skilled in the use of both microsurgical and minimally invasive procedures on the neck and back, as well as more complicated procedures. At Texas Spine and Neurosurgery we can also do lumbar, thoracic, and cervical discectomies, laminectomies, and fusions. In order to ensure quality, all our partners which provide operative locations must meet our strict standards for excellence. To that end, we both require and provide specific training for staff both inside and outside the operating room. All centers are required to meet state of the art technological standards with regard to equipment, procedures and protocols in order to become a Texas Spine & Neurosurgery partner.
Whenever possible, conservative treatment options are always considered before surgery. . At Texas Spine and Neurosurgery, we coordinate with high quality local providers and we help to oversee and coordinate care, including but not limited to pain management, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory therapy, bracing, massage therapy, chiropractic therapy, acupuncture, and pool therapy. Above all, our philosophy allows and encourages patients to try the least invasive treatment before progressing to more invasive therapies.
At Texas Spine & Neurosurgery, we specialize in the treatment of disorders of the spine and peripheral nerves, but our primary goal is to help stop the suffering associated with these disorders.
Texas Spine & Neurosurgery was founded by Dr. Steven Zielinski, a Stanford trained neurosurgeon who believes in giving patients the freedom to control their own healthcare, in partnership with their chosen physician. Texas Spine and Neurosurgery is a patient-centered practice that brings first class spine care to local communities and to patients. Texas Spine and Neurosurgery started as a small collaboration with local hospitals and local providers and has grown over several years.
