Traditional and Minimally Invasive Neck and Back Surgery in Houston, TX
Residents of Houston, Texas, who are considering back surgery can turn to Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine for individualized care. We have a team of board-certified and double-board-certified orthopedic surgeons, many of whom focus exclusively on the treatment of neck and back pain. This specialization allows them to make tailored treatment recommendations for patients with degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, sciatica and other common neck and back problems.
In many cases, surgery is not necessary to effectively treat back pain. However, if conservative methods (e.g., medications and physical therapy) do not significantly reduce a patient’s discomfort, surgery might become an appropriate next step.
As one of the largest orthopedic providers in Houston, Advanced Orthopaedics is a leading destination for individuals who are considering neck or back surgery. We perform many different procedures, including:
- Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery
- Cervical total disc replacement surgery
- Minimally invasive cervical laminoforaminotomy
- Posterior cervical instrumentation and fusion
- Lumbar total disc replacement
- Anterior posterior lumbar interbody fusion
- Lateral interbody fusion
- Minimally invasive laminectomy
- Minimally invasive discectomy
At Advanced Orthopaedics, we understand that the decision to undergo back surgery is a complicated one, and we’re here to help our patients make the best choices for their specific needs. We not only offer surgical treatment, but nonsurgical therapies as well. As such, we can help our patients ensure that they’ve explored any and all conservative options before moving forward with an operation. And, if back surgery is deemed the best course of action, we can use advanced techniques to help reduce the likelihood of complications and increase the chances of a successful outcome. For instance, we often use minimally invasive approaches, which involve much smaller incisions than traditional operations, to help minimize scarring, limit the chance of infection and shorten the postoperative recovery time.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Each procedure done by Dr. Patel has been an improvement. Very pleased.
Dr. Patel has been a great Doctor for me. When I was referred to after discussion we decided to do injections in my back. The first two did not work so did two more in a different section of my back. These injections worked great. I’m now able to sleep at night and the numbness in my foot is almost gone. The tingling in my foot & leg is gone and I am very happy about that. I am extremely happy that Dr. Patel is my Doctor. She has been a good listener when I tell her where I hurt and talks to me about what she feels should be done. The final decision is always mine.
On Nov. 22, 2017, I had a spinal injection in my lower back and it was an instant miracle in my life! For the first time in 4 intolerable months of pain, I was finally pain free, and I am now getting a second chance to live again! I am so grateful to Dr. Patel for my new life, and to God for guiding me to her! Thank you so very much Dr. Patel – you are God’s gift to me, thank you for being so awesome at what you do.
Dr. Patel is one of the best Doctors I have ever had. She is pretty good at her job. She makes it plain and simple. She is also very thoughtful. I was very glad to have met her. In other words she is pretty good.
The surgery done by Dr. S. Patel (Actually injections) & the mild medications she has prescribed has surely made my lower back -hip-leg less painful. I have complete confidence in her medical judgement & advice. She will administer second injection in June.
Dr. Patel is a very good Pain Management Doctor. She is one of my favorite doctors.
Dr. Patel has been great at my pain relief. She doesn’t force me to take any meds I don’t want, or injections. She will give me the injection I want when I need it. Great friendly Doctor.
Thank you for the opportunity to express how pleased I am with the excellent care of Stacy A. Bacon, M.D. I have confidence in her ability to care for me as she successfully partially replaced a broken hip 10 years ago, 2007. I also want to compliment Cheryl who set up the appointment. She represents Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine very well.
It’s been over 8 years since Dr. Bacon replaced by right ankle. I still can’t thank her enough for the years of pain free walking I have done since! And I’m still going strong! I had numerous breaks in my ankle due an auto accident, repaired/set by a different doctor, after multiple surgery’s, I was still limping, in great pain every day. Then I found Dr. Bacon, now, no more pain, NONE, and no more limping after this ankle replacement. I rave about her constantly and would recommend her to anyone who has a foot or ankle issue
I had been in so much pain with my back for years. It got so bad that I knew I had to do something. I went to Dr Mohr for help. I was so afraid to have spine surgery as I had heard so many horror stories. He and his staff were very informative. I was amazed at the new technology in spinal surgery. December 8, 2016 I had rods and pins put in my back. I am so happy I did now. I am healing really fast and the pain is going away as my body heals. Thank you Dr Mohr for you expertise and sensitive nature. You were understanding about my fear and helped assure me so I could receive the help I needed. You are an excellent Doctor.
