Spine care in North Texas

Spinal cord injuries can be caused by trauma, aging, improper body mechanics, congenital (present at birth) deformities, tumors, infections and normal wear and tear. Damage to any part of your back can cause pain and diminish your quality of life.

Although back pain is common, it's also treatable. At Medical City Dallas, we can diagnose any condition or injury affecting your spine. You can then move forward with your orthopedic team to develop a treatment plan that includes noninvasive care and, in certain cases, spine surgery.

Our approach to back and spine treatment focuses on options that minimize the healing time for patients while allowing the patient to return to their normal activities as soon as possible. The spine doctors at our hospital provide comprehensive care for patients with back pain and offer the highest level of expertise in treating the full spectrum of spinal disorders.

Scoliosis treatment

At the Medical City Scoliosis & Advanced Spine Center, we treat a range of spinal abnormalities where scoliosis may be a factor, including:

  • A side-to-side spine curve
  • A forward spine curve (kyphosis)
  • A concave lower back (lordosis)

Ideally, we'll detect an abnormal spine curve while it's minimal. In this case, a brace or physical therapy may be all that's needed to manage scoliosis. However, for severe curves or when scoliosis is accompanied by pain, spine surgery may be needed.

Spine surgery

Many back problems can be treated with nonsurgical care, such as rest, medication and physical therapy. However, in cases of severe or chronic pain, your spine doctor may recommend surgery.

Complex spine surgery

The spine specialists at our spine center offer complex spine surgery for a range of conditions, from spine deformities to herniated discs. The spine care you receive and whether surgery is necessary depends on a range of factors, including:

  • Your diagnosis
  • Your overall health
  • Your wellness goals

If complex spine surgery is needed, you'll benefit from our commitment to alleviating your pain and achieving the best outcomes possible.

Spinal revision surgery

No one wants to think about having a second surgery for the same condition. However, there are times when spinal revision surgery is needed. If you're experiencing pain after surgery, your orthopedic team can further diagnose your condition and recommend the best path toward eliminating your pain.

Tarlov cyst screening and treatment

Tarlov cysts are rare, but they can cause immense pain. These cysts form on nerve roots at the base of the spine. This puts pressure on nearby nerves and can be debilitating. Your neurological care team can diagnose these cysts using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and other screening techniques. You can then move forward with a treatment plan.
