Fusion in the Neck

Our cervical spine is made up of seven bones with intervertebral discs between them. The cervical spine has three important roles: it allows the largest degree of movement of any part of the spine, and it has to protect the spinal cord and support the skull. The loads it bears, coupled with the degree of […]


Relieving Your Chronic Neck and Arm Pain

Our nerves are remarkably sensitive, but they’re also very durable. After all, they need to send messages to the brain for our entire lifetime. But they don’t like to be crowded. That’s what happens when a bulging or herniated spinal disc starts pushing on a nerve root. If this occurs in the vertebrae in the […]


The Surprise That Is Aneurysm

Most people don’t like surprises. Surprise a person with a “surprise” birthday party and someone’s likely to get slugged. Surprises at work — “uh, the boss would like to see you” — are never good. Generally, humans like to know what’s coming up. That’s why aneurysms are especially sinister. Most brain aneurysms are completely asymptomatic, […]


Surgery Without an Incision

When you undergo surgery, you expect your recovery to include the healing of your incision location. But that’s not the case with a certain type of surgery we perform at Texas Neurosurgery — stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). In stereotactic radiosurgery, we use high doses of radiation to target tumors and other problems in the brain and […]


Stimulating the Brain to Treat Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s Disease is a horrible nervous system disorder that gradually robs a person of most of their physical activities one by one. There is no cure and patients simply deteriorate until their entire life has completely changed. At Texas Neurosurgery, we treat Parkinson’s disease in some patients with deep brain stimulation. What is Parkinson’s disease? […]


More About Brain Tumors

Brain tumors are somewhat of a mystery. There are only a few known risk factors, such as children who receive radiation to the head are more at risk for developing brain tumors later in life. There are a couple rare genetic conditions that also increase risk. But those three issues account for a very low […]


Drugs and Parkinson’s

Effective progress has been made in treating Parkinson’s disease, especially with the development of new drugs, along with a better understanding of how to use older treatment methodologies. Most Parkinson’s patients can find relief from medications, but it’s important to start them early. This early treatment can impact how the disease will unfold over time. […]


More Information About Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Many people suffer through pain, numbness, and tingling in their hand and arm yet don’t do anything about it. They just assume they slept wrong on their arm or are doing something else at that instant causing the issue. They’re often wrong in those assumptions because those same people often have carpal tunnel syndrome. At […]


Those Tingling Hands Need Attention

We all have tingling hands and fingers at times. We may sleep on an arm and awaken to pins and needles as blood returns to the limb. We may bang our funny bone, with tingling sensations that can last for a couple minutes. But if your hands, fingers, or arms have these sensations for an […]

Understanding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The carpal tunnel is a narrow, fibrous passage in the wrist that protects the median nerve. This is the nerve responsible for movement and sensation in the hand and thumb, index and middle fingers. When there is a change in tissue position, the tunnel can become congested, leading to tingling and numbness in the fingers […]
