Among all surgical specializations, the surgery of the brain and spinal cord takes a special place. The peculiarities of the central and peripheral nervous systems require surgeons of the highest level of skill, dexterity, and accuracy. Few places in the world can achieve the high level of results found in the Texas Medical Center.
Modern neurosurgery’s standard is stereotaxis (minimally invasive surgery using a spatial scheme with a given coordinate system). Stereotactic operations on the brain are carried out using the finest manipulator tools, highly advanced planning, and calculations based on a detailed preliminary examination of the patient.
Robotic and gamma knife neurosurgical techniques are widely used. Gamma knife operations do not require craniotomies. The accuracy and variety of surgical methods and the most modern equipment allow neurosurgeons in the USA to perform complicated operations that are not yet available to their colleagues in other parts of the world.
The level of training of neurosurgeons in the US is extremely high. Since this area of medicine is considered one of the most prestigious, the competition among doctors is very high, and neurosurgeons are truly the best of the best.
Neurosurgery in the US opens up new treatment options for patients from around the world. Doctors in the Texas Medical Center are ready to help people with tumors of the brain and spinal cord, intervertebral hernias, circulatory disorders of the brain, pathologies of the peripheral nervous system, and many other neurological diseases requiring surgical intervention.
Houston Spine & Neurosurgery
Houston Spine & Neurosurgery is one of the few hospitals in the world which uses Medtronic's deep brain stimulation method. This method is effective in the treatment of Parkinson's disease and motor activity disorders.
Spine Disc Replacement Center
The Center offers treatments for neck and back pain, spinal stenosis, intervertebral hernia, osteochondrosis, and other neurological diseases. Patients have both non-surgical methods and minimally invasive high-precision neurosurgery options available.
Texas Spine & Neurosurgery Center
Texas Spine & Neurosurgery Center was one of the first medical centers in the USA to offer minimally invasive spinal surgery. Patients with herniated intervertebral discs, lumbosacral radiculitis, and more are successfully treated here. Patients with vertebral fractures, tumors, and osteoporosis are treated with the kyphoplasty method.
Houston Methodist Department of Neurosurgery
The Department specializes in the surgical treatment of craniocerebral, spinal, and peripheral nervous disorders. Doctors have achieved outstanding results in the treatment of brain tumors, strokes, epilepsy, various motor disorders, and traumas of the brain and spinal cord.
Texas Children’s Hospital. Pediatric Neurosurgery
At Texas Children's, neurosurgeons perform more than 950 different neurosurgical operations every year, returning health to the smallest patients. Texas Children’s was the first pediatric center in the world in which Neuropace RNS was used to treat convulsions in children. This method is now considered to be one of the most effective treatments of severe childhood epilepsy. Pediatric neurosurgeons work closely with specialists in maxillofacial surgery, oncologists, otorhinolaryngologists, and more to create individualized treatment and surgical plans for patients ranging from in-utero (still in the womb) to adolescence.
