Spine & Peripheral Nerve Center

The Spine & Peripheral Nerve Center at the Houston Methodist Neurological Institute brings together a team of world-renowned neurologists, neurosurgeons and other specialists who offer the most advanced treatments of the most common spine conditions. The Center offers a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach to the management of a wide variety of disorders affecting the spine. Spinal neurosurgeons work in collaboration with neurologists, neuroradiologists, orthopedic surgeons, pain management specialists, and rehabilitation experts to provide the most accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan for every patient. The center not only serves the local community but also plays a vital role as a tertiary referral source for both doctors and patients in the Gulf Coast region and internationally.

The Spine & Peripheral Nerve Center's physicians treat the full spectrum of disease, from routine degenerative conditions to the most complex spinal conditions, including adult scoliosis, spinal tumors, and chronic pain conditions. Although many patients can be successfully managed with conservative, non-operative therapies, others benefit from our extensive expertise in spinal surgery. The center's surgeons utilize cutting-edge technology such as the O-arm intraoperative imaging system and computer-guided stereotactic spinal systems. When appropriate, minimally invasive approaches are used to minimize the risk of surgery and speed the recovery and return to normal activities. The collective goal is to improve each patient’s quality of life by providing compassionate, professional expert care.
