Texas Spine Center

BY MELISSA GAUTIER

The goal of Dr. Shah Siddiqi and his staff at the Texas Spine Center is to help patients improve and relieve chronic back pain and related symptoms. Dr. Siddiqi treats spinal conditions and provides on-site pain evaluation and management for simple and complex spinal conditions including disc disease, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis. He has been in active practice in Houston for more than 18 years as a neurosurgeon, specializing in minimally invasive care for spinal disorders and offering the most precise surgical treatments and modalities to date. 

A comprehensive range of non-surgical treatments for back and neck pain, disc disease, and spinal conditions including focused therapy, selective spinal injections (diagnostic and therapeutic), and physical therapy are considered before surgery is deemed necessary. If and when surgery is needed, Dr. Siddiqi considers outpatient procedures – laser or minimally invasive endoscopic and microscopic – before recommending open-spine surgery procedures.

“We are pioneers in microscopic image-guided spine surgery,” Dr. Siddiqi says. Utilizing intraoperative, CT image-guided and robotic surgery affords unparalleled precision with 3D virtual reality. “The combination of microsurgical techniques with minimally invasive surgery options for back pain, disc surgery, disc replacement, and spinal fusion results in smaller incisions, quicker recovery, and earlier return to a more normal, active lifestyle.”

Dr. Siddiqi received his Bachelor of Science with honors in medical sciences and psychology from University College London. He earned a medical degree from the University of Cambridge, England and completed his neurosurgery residency at the University of Toronto where he was awarded the Horsey Prize for Clinical Neurosurgery and the KG McKenzie Prize for Basic Neuroscience by the Canadian Neurological Society. Dr. Siddiqi completed a spinal surgery fellowship at Sunnybrook Health Science Center at University of Toronto, and a fellowship at NYU Neurosurgery. He is a board certified neurosurgeon, Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Neurosurgery (Canada), and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He is a medical staff member at Houston Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, St. Luke’s Vintage Hospital, HCA Tomball Regional Hospital, Houston Methodist The Woodlands Hospital, and has been appointed assistant professor of clinical neurosurgery with Houston Methodist Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical College. Dr. Siddiqi has authored textbook chapters and presented papers internationally on spine surgery, and is considered one of the most experienced spine surgeons in Houston. He enjoys spending leisure time with his family, traveling to historic cities around the world, and playing golf and cricket.
