Spine Specialist & Surgery in Austin TX

Low back pain and neck pain are among the most common spine-related complaints. Muscle, ligament, nerve, disc, and spine injuries are frequent causes of back pain. Poor posture during movements, wear and tear, and degenerative disease, such as arthritis, can cause the spinal structures to break down and add pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Only a small percentage of people with back and neck pain need spine surgery.

The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic spine surgeons and physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation specialists) at Texas Orthopedics can determine the cause of your spine pain and provide effective treatment to relieve and manage your pain, recommending spine surgery only after exhausting all conservative treatment options.

Common spine conditions we treat include:

Feel confident that our spine surgeons use the most advanced surgical techniques, provide diligent follow-up care, and communicate closely with our post-surgical rehabilitation therapists to ensure you experience the best outcome possible.

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation


Doctors of physical medicine and rehabilitation are referred to as physiatrists. This type of doctor has expertise in diagnosing and treating neck and back pain without surgery, as well as nerve, muscle, bone, and orthopedic injuries. Our board-certified physiatrists perform electrodiagnostic studies to diagnose nerve and muscle conditions that can cause pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling in the spine and extremities.
