Texas Orthopedic Hospital brings together highly-skilled experts in both interventional spine care and spine surgery.

If your condition can be treated without surgery, the interventional spine specialists at the Spinal Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Texas Orthopedic Hospital can provide pain relief through minimally invasive treatments. If surgery is required, the experienced spine surgeons affiliated with Texas Orthopedic Hospital, most of whom are part of the globally recognized Fondren Orthopedic Group, employ the latest surgical techniques to repair your spine surgically. Whenever possible, this includes using robotic-assisted surgery to ensure the best possible outcomes when performing upper-middle back (thoracic) and lower back (lumbar) surgeries. With smaller incisions and more precise movements, this advanced surgical technique can reduce pain, minimal scarring and faster recovery.
