The Top Spine Surgeons in the Dallas, TX Area

Chronic spine pain affects everyone differently. Some people are unable to exercise or play the sports they love, while others find it difficult to work at a desk for a prolonged period without experiencing discomfort. With the help of the qualified surgeons here at Texas Spine Associates, patients can look forward to participating in their favorite daily activities once again, maintaining a healthy spine, and enjoying a high quality of life.

Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF)

This procedure is used to fuse discs in the treatment of lower back and leg pain. By entering through the abdomen, back muscle and nerves are left untouched and a larger implant can be used allowing for better initial stability.

SI Fusion

SI fusion is a minimally invasive procedure which fuses together the two bones linked by the SI joint at the base of the spine when the joint has deteriorated or been damaged causing pain. Fusing these bones together stabilizes the damaged joint and aims to relieve pain in the process.

Minimally Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression

Minimally-Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression (MILM) is a surgical procedure used to treat spinal stenosis and herniated discs. MILM is an alternative to a traditional “open” laminectomy.

Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF)

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a combined minimally invasive surgical procedure to remove damaged or injured disc material from the spine in the neck and relieve the pain associated with compressed spinal nerves.

Minimally Invasive Microdiscectomy

A microdiscectomy is a minimally invasive spine surgery to remove portions of a damaged spinal disc in order to relieve back pain. During the procedure, only the affected portion of the disc is removed to leave the majority of the disc intact and maintain the integrity of the spine.

Posterior Cervical Decompression and Fusion

A posterior cervical decompression is a complex spine surgery done to alleviate severe compression on the spinal cord and nerves. Specialized instrumentation is placed to provide stability and allow for fusion to develop.

Minimally Invasive Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (Mi-PLIF)

Minimally Invasive Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) is a less invasive form of spinal fusion surgery. By using state-of-art screws and innovative intra-operative guidance we are able to perform the surgery with minimal muscle and soft tissue trauma.

Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (Mi-TLIF)

This minimally invasive technique utilizes state-of-the-art screws and intraoperative guidance to minimize tissue trauma in this procedure. A small incision is made on the patient’s back to access the lumbar spine. Patients tend to experience less post-surgical pain and recover faster from surgery using this approach.
