Minimally Invasive Surgery

When surgery is needed, you'll be glad to know the neurosurgeons of Spine Team Texas are nationally recognized for their skills and expertise. Led by Dr. David Rothbart, a renowned neurosurgeon and champion of minimally invasive surgical techniques, our spine-focused surgeons are highly trained and experienced in the latest technology and surgical methods.

Minimally invasive surgery techniques provide the opportunity to relieve spine pain. This treatment method involves making a small incision, as little as half an inch, and inserting specialized instruments or probes to access and repair the damaged area of the spine. This less aggressive approach is typically completed on an outpatient basis and has proven to be as successful as conventional "open surgery" methods.
