Back Pain Treatment From Fellowship-Trained, Board-Certified Spine Surgeons in Houston, TX
Back pain can have many causes. With time, the discomfort will sometimes go away on its own, but if it doesn’t, the best way to find fast and effective relief is to see an experienced specialist. If you’re in the Houston, Texas, area, you are welcome to consult a fellowship-trained, board-certified spine surgeon at Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine. Matthew P. Cubbage, M.D., or Alexander R. Mohr, M.D., can pinpoint the cause of your severe or persistent back pain and then guide you through your treatment options to overcome it.
What causes back pain?
In many cases, the source of back pain is mechanical in nature, which means it can usually be traced to an issue with a disc, vertebra, facet joint, nerve root, ligament or other tissue in the spinal column. For instance, back pain may result from:
- A sprain or strain caused by a bout of heavy lifting
- Age-related spinal degeneration, which can lead to conditions such as degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, facet syndrome and spinal stenosis
- Spinal nerve compression
- A spinal injury, such as a vertebral fracture that resulted from a fall or other direct trauma
How is back pain treated?
Back pain treatment can vary based on a number of factors, including the severity of the symptoms and the source of the pain. Based on your diagnosis, we may discuss:
- Physical therapy to improve your posture, enhance your flexibility and strengthen the muscles that support your spine
- A back brace, which can support and stabilize your spine during certain activities
- Medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), analgesics or muscle relaxants
- Spinal injections, which can place a powerful anti-inflammatory medication directly into a painful area of your spine
- Surgery to address a specific issue, such as a compressed spinal nerve or vertebral fracture
At Advanced Orthopaedics, we offer a full range of back pain treatment options, including both surgical and nonsurgical therapies. Because we maintain a conservative treatment philosophy, you can count on us to help you find meaningful relief using the least invasive approach possible. Typically, we encourage our patients to try conservative treatment for several months before considering any type of surgery.
If you ultimately decide to proceed with surgical back pain treatment, you can feel confident entrusting your surgery to Dr. Cubbage or Dr. Mohr. Both are trained and experienced in performing the latest minimally invasive and endoscopic techniques, including disc replacement surgery and alternative bone graft substitutes.

What Our Patients Are Saying
This Hospital/clinic is the best that will take care of your pain and ailments. I will never trust any one else but Dr. Alain Elbaz to heal my body. The staff is awesome, polite, respectful and as professional as the team that works with Dr. Elbaz. I recommend him and all the doctors in the clinic because of their experience and honesty.
I have been fighting chronic knee pain for ten years following a knee replacement, a bone infection, and subsequent knee revision surgery. After a number of failed solutions to pain relief, Dr. Patel introduced me to RF nerve ablation procedure which has been very effective in improving my quality of life. Dr. Patel’s professionalism and proficiency are sincerely appreciated.
Dr. Mohr and his staff are very friendly people. They treated my father very well and made him feel comfortable in his uncomfortable situation.
Yes, I would certainly recommend Advanced Orthopedics & Sports Medicine to family & friends. My wife and I both have been going to see Dr. Mills for the past year, and both of us have had hand surgery performed by same. He is always very polite, and will discuss all options with you, and will not cut you short of time. He listens, he’s very professional, and bottom line is he is a great doctor. Plus all the staff that we have had contact with are very polite, and professional. Dr. Mills assistant Ms. Alexia Wilburn gets an AA ++

Dr. Bacon is hands-down the best doctor I have ever had (skills, knowledge, bedside manner, and more,) Garrett is an intelligent P. A. who is very approachable and answers any and all questions promptly, and Jose is warm, incredibly compassionate and genuinely shows great concern for the patients. He represents the practice very well. There are so many more positives to say about them, but not enough room! I highly recommend Team Bacon!
Doctor Brooks is the best. His advice to get lubricant injected into my knees has made my life so much better. Kudos!
