About the Mischer Spine Center
Back pain is the number one cause of lost job time in the nation and the single leading cause of disability worldwide. It is estimated that 80 percent of adults will suffer from moderate to severe back pain in their lifetime, from any number of causes including injury, disease or simply from degeneration. The Mischer Spine Center offers a comprehensive range of services and specialists dedicated to providing back pain relief and restoring back function and quality of life, with an expert multidisciplinary team of board-certified neurosurgeons, neurologists, pain specialists and therapists. Patients of all ages come to the Mischer Spine Center for the diagnosis and treatment of back pain resulting from trauma, degenerative disc disease, deformity, and osteoporosis and related stress fractures.
Through our affiliation with the Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute at the Texas Medical Center, we bring patients the latest in research, clinical trials, and innovative therapies. The Institute’s position as the primary teaching hospital for McGovern Medical School at UTHealth offers our patients access to world-renowned experts in spine care who are fellowship trained at leading institutions.
We strive for and specialize in a variety of non-surgical treatment options, however, when surgical intervention is necessary, patients can rest assured that they are in the hands of the region’s most experienced spine surgeons. More than 3,000 spine surgeries – from minimally invasive to advanced surgical procedures – are performed by our neurosurgeons annually, more than any other hospital system in Houston. These highly qualified surgeons are dedicated to advancing medicine through research and technology, providing patients with the latest innovations and equipment, and access to groundbreaking clinical trials.
