Meet Your Team

Cortland K. Miller, MD

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation/Pain Management


Dr. Miller has been part of the Spine Team Texas team approach since 2008. Previously located in our Southlake office, Dr. Miller brings years of expertise in non-surgical management of a gamut of painful spine complaints and knowledge in electro-diagnostic studies. “I feel it is important to take as much time as our patients need to truly get to know them and try to identify a root cause in their pain. I personally review imaging with the patient and help explain in understandable terms, what is important and what is incidental, in their findings. Or if no specific cause of pain is found, my role is to help patients take a pro-active role in their management of chronic pain symptoms to become more functional in their daily lives.”

At Spine Team Texas, we have a unique approach of surgical and non-surgical specialties in close communication to help outline a conservative treatment plan that is best for the patient. Over 90% of our patients are treated successfully with a non-surgical approach. We strive to maintain good communication with our referral sources so your referring provider is always in the loop of what is going on with your care.
