Spine & Peripheral Nerve Center

The Spine & Peripheral Nerve Center at Houston Methodist Neurological Institute offers expert care for both common and complex spinal conditions.


Our team of spine surgeons have several decades of combined experience and leverage the most advanced tools and technologies available to deliver the personalized care needed to treat your specific spine problem.

Experts Offering the Latest in Spine Surgery

In addition to our extensive experience in the complex surgical techniques needed to treat advanced spinal conditions, we are one of the only teams in Houston with expertise in endoscopic spine surgery. This minimally invasive technique allows our surgeons to operate on common spine problems using an incision only a few millimeters long.


Benefits of endoscopic spine surgery include:

  • Preservation of healthy muscle, tendon, and ligaments
  • Typically performed as an outpatient procedure
  • Reduced risk of surgical complications
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Shorter recovery times


Our experts also leverage the latest robotic-assistance technology to more precisely navigate the complex architecture associated with your spine — helping to make spine surgery as minimally invasive as possible, whenever possible.

Improving Spine Care Through Innovative Research

Our spine experts don’t just treat spine problems, they’re also actively researching innovative ways to treat these conditions more effectively.


With ongoing clinical trials focusing on spinal-cord injury recovery and post-operative pain control, we’re committed to enhancing recovery after surgery — helping you get back to your normal life sooner and even minimizing the need for pain medications in some cases.
