Spine specialists in Fort Worth, Texas

Damage to any part of your back or pressure on the nerves in your spine can affect your quality of life, but you don't have to live with back pain and debilitating symptoms.

The spine doctors at Medical City Fort Worth provide complete care for back pain and spine disorders. No matter what type of discomfort you have, you can find relief.

Spine surgery

Our approach to spine care is to minimize healing time while allowing you to return to normal activities as soon as possible. To that end, we offer a high level of expertise in treating spinal disorders.

Your spine doctor may recommend noninvasive care or surgery for your back pain and can help you create a treatment plan tailored to your diagnosis and health goals. If your doctor has suggested surgery, you may have options. Spine surgeries offered at our hospitals include:

  • Spinal fusion: During a spinal fusion, your surgeon will fuse vertebrae together. This is the most common procedure for spine conditions, including scoliosis.
  • Laminectomy: Your surgeon will remove parts of the bone, bone spurs or ligaments in your back. A laminectomy relieves pressure on nerves and can ease pain or weakness.
  • Discectomy: During a discectomy, your surgeon removes all or part of a spinal disc or discs.
  • Disc replacement: Your surgeon will replace a damaged spinal disc with an artificial one.
  • Interlaminar implant: Your surgeon will implant a U-shaped device between vertebrae. The implant helps keep the space between the vertebrae open. This eases the pressure on your spinal nerves.
  • Arthroscopy: Your surgeon will fix tears in your spine's soft tissues and cartilage. This can reduce pain and improve your range of motion.
  • Specialized cervical disc surgery: Your surgeon will remove damaged cervical discs. These discs are in the neck, connecting the skull to the upper spine.
  • Robot-assisted spinal fusion surgery: Your spine doctor may use robot-assisted technology for:
    • Lumbar, thoracic and cervical spinal fusion
    • Degenerative disc disease surgery
    • Surgery for traumatic spinal injuries
    • Spinal instability due to scoliosis, fracture, etc.

Spine surgery in Fort Worth Texas

Only a small percentage of patients need spine surgery. Back pain can often be treated with nonsurgical care. Your spine doctor may recommend anti-inflammatory medicine, ice, heat and/or gentle massage. If these options don't help, back surgery may offer relief.

Your orthopedic team will discuss whether spine surgery is an option. Noninvasive care, such as physical therapy, may also be recommended.
