Surgical and Nonsurgical Sciatica Treatment Options in Houston, TX
Advanced Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine offers a variety of sciatica treatment options to individuals from Houston, Texas, and other surrounding areas. Our state-of-the-art orthopedic center is equipped with today’s latest treatment technologies, enabling us to provide both surgical and nonsurgical sciatica treatments in a single location.
Because sciatica is typically the result of another type of spinal damage, such as spinal stenosis or a herniated disc, it’s important to determine the underlying cause before initiating treatment. At Advanced Orthopaedics, we use today’s latest diagnostic technologies to ensure that every patient receives an accurate diagnosis and the most appropriate types of treatment. For patients with sciatica, this may include:
- Prescription medications
- Physical therapy
- Nerve blocks and epidural spinal injections
- Trigger point therapy
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Minimally invasive or traditional surgery
Nonsurgical forms of sciatica treatment are often quite effective at alleviating the pain and discomfort that occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed. However, if symptoms do not improve with several months of conservative treatment, surgery might be an option. At Advanced Orthopaedics, we believe that the least invasive approach is often the most appropriate, although our experienced surgeons perform both traditional and minimally invasive procedures for sciatica treatment.
Patients from Houston, and other nearby areas are welcome to turn to Advanced Orthopaedics at any stage of their treatment journey, whether they’ve just started to experience sciatica symptoms, are working through their conservative treatment options, or are ready to move forward with a surgical procedure. With a team of highly experienced and compassionate orthopedists on staff, we’re here to help our patients find the right options for alleviating their pain and getting back to their daily lives.

What Our Patients Are Saying
I was in pain for a couple of months and went to see Dr. Cubbage. He knew right away by the way my posture what the issue was. He had me scheduled in and he along with his staff were awesome. After my surgery, I felt 100 % better. I had a few follow up visits and he along with his staff were genuinely attentive to my concerns and needs. I was also not in his network and his staff helped me out with that as well. I highly recommend him for people that have back or neck issues.
Dr. Cubbage & Staff replaced a disc that had been destroyed between my 4th and 5th vertebra. This is my 4th month since the surgery in January of 2018. I was very impressed with their dedication and professional approach to helping me live a more productive life. I am a 70 year old wife, mother and grandmother. Feel very blessed. Sincerely!
Excellent experience. The doctor, staff, office services and hospital care were outstanding before, during and after the procedure. Thank you – Heathgrades, Dr. Cubbage review
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.
