Patient Resources

Facility Ownership

The physicians of Texas Neurosurgery, LLP has invested in the following facilities: Baylor Medical Center at Uptown and Methodist Hospital for Surgery.

These investments provide your physician an opportunity to be actively involved in the quality control over your medical procedures and to insure that your medical costs are reasonable. Your physician’s ownership interest in Methodist Hospital of Surgery and Baylor Medical Center at Uptown, does mean that your physician may benefit from choosing to perform surgical procedures on you at one of these facilities.

Because of this, your physician hereby advises you that you have the right to choose to be treated at some other facility at which they provide services. Your physician will make arrangements for such an alternative should you so desire.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide you with your neurosurgical needs.
