When you need comprehensive, conservative spine care, Spine Team Texas provides specialized services close to home. With the opening of their sixth clinic in Richardson last year, Spine Team Texas has followed through on their commitment to meeting the needs of the North Texas community and treating spine disorders conservatively whenever possible. Patients no longer have to travel long distances to receive spine-specialized treatment from award-winning, innovative physicians.
Spine Team Texas has been established in the North Texas area for over 10 years, starting with their flagship clinic in Southlake, and provides surgical and nonsurgical options for relief from spine pain. Their conservative treatment model and team approach has a proven success record. Through minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, patients are able to resume normal activities and return to job responsibilities sooner and with fewer modifications, providing the best possible outcome for the patient.
Board-Certified Specialists Offer Relief for Spine Pain
David Garrigues, MD, physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, specializes in nonsurgical interventional spine procedures and spine pain medicine. He completed his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas; internship in internal medicine at UT Southwestern and Parkland Memorial Hospital; residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago; and a fellowship in Pain Management at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital and Carolina Pain Institute.
Anthony Berg, MD, spine pain anesthesiologist specializing in acute and chronic spine pain interventional procedures, works closely with industry leaders to develop new generations of spinal cord stimulators to offer pain relief to a wider range of patients who previously did not qualify for implantation. “Spinal cord stimulators use small amounts of electricity to scramble the signal of pain before it reaches the brain,” explained Dr. Berg, a Spine Team Texas partner. The devices are typically implanted in patients who have found other methods of relief for back and leg pain ineffective.
Leonard Kibuule, MD, an orthopedic spine surgeon specializing in minimally invasive spine surgery techniques, offers patients the OLIF procedure—an innovative spine surgery for those with low back and/or leg pain due to diseases and conditions that have not responded to nonsurgical treatment. “The OLIF requires a smaller incision and results in less scarring, a quicker recovery, and crucial vessels manipulation is avoided,” said Dr. Kibuule, also a partner at Spine Team Texas. He also provides many other minimally invasive spine surgery procedures to help patients get back to an active lifestyle with little interruption.
