Back, Neck, and Spine

At UT Southwestern Medical Center, we aim to help you resume life without back and neck pain, with a focus on effective, long-term results.

You can rely on our physicians to accurately pinpoint back, neck, and spine pain and apply the most current solutions available — not only in North Texas, but in the world.

Our comprehensive offerings include nonsurgical treatments and minimally invasive spine procedures that require extremely small incisions, new modular disc implants to allow for more mobility than previous technology, spinal fusion surgery, and disc arthroplasty.

Although we are leaders in the latest spine surgery procedures and technology, our physicians have found that effective nonoperative treatments and lifestyle changes can often improve back and neck disorders. In fact, for nine out of 10 patients, the best relief for back pain is not surgery.

Comprehensive Spine Care

Whether you are seeing a UT Southwestern spine specialist for an initial diagnosis or second opinion, our goal is to prescribe the treatment option that is most suitable for you.

We individualize the course of treatment based on a variety of factors, including the cause of the back or neck problem and your lifestyle.

We treat a full range of back, neck, and spine conditions, including:
