Default Back Surgeon

Guys I am looking for recommendations out there, I have had previous back surgery's and recently re injured it. I have spoke with 2 different doctors and have not had much positive feedback. Does anyone have experience with a miracle worker??

Henry N Small in Houston 336-320-2420 not sure about the miracle worker thing but definitely will be honest. He held me off for almost 20 years then Sadie you need surgery when you get ready to do it.

You are talking about Texas Back Institute.

I need the Tiger surgery and either Guyer or Hisey will do mine. Not sure when but itís inevitable.

Dr. Cyril Sebastian was the neurosurgeon that repaired the burst L3 vertebrae in my back from the car wreck. He did an amazing job and I am feeling pretty good.

Just about everyone from Texas Brain and Spine Institute. TBSI has clinics all over the state. If you need something more specific - the one in College Station. Dr. Johnathan Friedman is fantastic.

I may be biased but you'll be hard-pressed to find a better surgeon than Alex Ropper at Baylor College of Medicine. He is the director of spine surgery at Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center. His colleagues Michael Raber and David Xu are also wonderful.

Dr Brad White with them did mine a few years back. I cannot sing their praises enough! I put surgery off for some 20+ years and now the only time it bothers me is when the weather changes (darn arthritis)!

Sounds like there are a good number of quality surgeons to choose from. The only thing I will say is follow there PT to the letter

I don't have any personal experience. But my wife's pain management doctor, mentioned The Fondern Group to us today. She may need back surgery, this is who he recommended. Maybe someone here can comment on a particular doctor at this practice.

Ditto on Dr Jeff Kozak. I have referred a ton of patients to him over the years. If I need an orthopedic surgeon I would be calling him. For a neurosurgeon, I refer quite a bit to Dr. Paul Holman and Dr Alfonso Aldama, always with great results.

My back surgeries were for tumor removeal, but 2 I can recommend are Joseph Beshay who works out of medical city, and Jeremy Denning who uses Baylor Plano, Methodist and Presbyterian. Every doctor I saw after Denning's work last April all say he is a rock star of neurosurgeons.

Also had a surgery in Oct 18 that I wont recommend the surgeon to anyone. I think he is an ok neuro, but I needed the rock star. I think he shouldn't have taken it on if he couldn't handle it. He did send me to Denning, but he should have in the first place, and I would be over a year out now.

Back surgeries aint no freaking joke, be comfortable with your surgeon, and research him all you can. Good luck
