Spinal Discs 101

July 15, 2021

It doesn’t matter how you do it — whether a bad fall while water skiing over at Lavon Lake or if you helped your brother move a sofa and bent just the wrong way — a herniated disc can create pain moving forward that can be hard to calm down. Our expert team at Texas […]

Fixing Your Aching Wrists

June 15, 2021

Today we do more repetitive work with our fingers than in older times. Tasks such as typing can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, a condition caused by pressure on the median nerve and typified by pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling. One of the options for treatment is surgery. In these outpatient procedures our three Texas […]

Good and Bad Exercises for Back Pain

May 15, 2021

At Texas Neurosurgery, we are called on to surgically address many back injuries. Procedures such as microdiscectomies, laminectomies, artificial disc replacements, and others often can point back to an initial back injury as the start of the problem.  The reality of modern life, where we spend a lot of time sitting and aren’t as physically […]

What is Golfer’s Elbow?

April 15, 2021

Whether playing Stevens Park or Dallas National, golf’s big around here and across Texas. If you play enough, you may have developed a condition colloquially known as “golfer’s elbow.” You can see why people call it that.

The Unwanted Surprise of an Aneurysm

March 15, 2021

A brain aneurysm is a bulge or ballooning in a blood vessel in the brain. Although it can only be seen on scans, if you could see an aneurysm it would look like a berry hanging off of a stem. An aneurysm on its own is not a problem, as they are typically small and […]

What kinds of surgery are used for chronic neck pain?

February 14, 2021

Life can be a pain in the neck…literally. Humans weren’t meant to be hunched over a computer all day. We weren’t meant for the sedentary lifestyles most of us now lead. Plus, the cartilage in our joints has trouble keeping up with our ever-lengthening lifespans. The seven vertebrae and surrounding muscles that make up our […]

Removing the Back of a Vertebra — Laminectomy

January 15, 2021

A compressed nerve is not a happy nerve. Much of the chronic pain we suffer outside of our joints is due to nerve compression involving our spinal cord and the nerve roots exiting the spinal cord. This can show itself in back pain directly at the site of the compression or it can show itself […]

Pay Attention to Those Facial Twitches

December 15, 2020

At Texas Neurosurgery, our board-certified neurosurgeons deal with many situations, such as aneurysms or vertebral fractures that are instantly serious and often could present life and death possibilities.

Fractures in the Thoracic and Lumbar Spine

November 15, 2020

Last month, our blog addressed a broken neck, less dramatically known as a fractured vertebra in the cervical spine, the seven vertebrae that make up our neck. Just so we don’t overlook the 17 other vertebrae that make up our spine, this month let’s get into fractures of the thoracic or lumbar spine. Our Texas […]

Fractured Cervical Vertebrae

October 15, 2020

When most people hear the phrase “broken neck” they assume the person is now going to be a quadriplegic for the rest of his or her life. In cases of traumatic injury, of course that can be the result. But a broken neck actually simply means the person has a fractured vertebra in their cervical […]
