Physical therapy and rehabilitation

Our therapists work with you and your referring provider to create a therapy regimen tailored to your health and well-being.

Minimally invasive spine surgery

For some patients, minimally invasive surgery may be a treatment option. With advanced technology, spine surgeons can perform a variety of spine surgeries through tiny incisions—which results in less scarring and a quicker recovery because there is less trauma to the body.

In some cases, our Houston spine surgeons use robotic-assisted surgical technology for spine surgery. Robotic-assisted spine surgery offers superior precision and control, as well as a faster recovery.

You may want to talk to your physician to learn if you qualify for minimally invasive surgery.
