In recent years there have been significant advances in the field of spinal surgery. Today nearly 80% of adult Americans will sustain at least one episode of severe disabling lumbar back pain in their lives. Of these, 15% will face surgical intervention as their treatment. With the advances and new technology in the spinal field, patients who undergo spinal surgery may be able to undergo much less invasive procedures in an outpatient setting. This means recovery time is much shorter and there is much less pain involved. The spine doctors at South Texas Spinal Clinic endeavor to use these procedures to provide the very best care to their patients.
South Texas Spinal Clinic offers physical therapy, back school, work hardening, functional assessment, electromyography, and pain management. For your convenience, the South Texas Spinal Clinic has three main offices, located throughout San Antonio. Additionally, the spine doctors see patients at various satellite clinics in San Antonio and the surrounding towns.
