Dallas-Fort Worth’s Best in Spine Surgery

Our goal is to get you back to your normal life as quickly as possible. Texas Spine Associates is led by Dr. Neil Shah and Dr. Vishal Patel. We provide the latest in minimally invasive spine procedures to patients to treat arm, neck, back and leg pain in Dallas and Fort Worth

Our doctors are committed to excellence in spine surgery. Our only goal is to treat our patients with compassion and respect.

Surgery is a scary thought. That’s why we pride ourselves on being conservative doctors, focused on helping you feel the best you can. Counseling and education are the cornerstones of our relationships with our patients. We are on this journey with you and will work with you to exhaust every non-surgical option possible before talking about spine surgery.

We specialize in Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery. It calls for a one-inch incision and has our patients up and walking the same day as surgery, and only needs a band-aid to cover the incision. Don’t let your spine issues keep you from your life! We serve patients with scoliosis, spinal deformities, and other complex spine diseases in a patient and family-centered, multidisciplinary environment.
