What Patients are Saying About Dr. Scott Blumenthal

  • Marney says that Dr. Blumenthal and the other skilled professionals finally made sense of the rumors and misinformation about back pain, gave him the true story, and made his surgical experience the "easiest” and most “well done” he’s seen. Texas Back Institute gave Marney the “dramatic change” that has allowed him to play with his children, take up golf again and travel.
    — M. E.- Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Dr.. Blumenthal gave me my life back! "I now live completely unrestricted with a very active lifestyle — 100% pain-free." David has no reservations in recommending Dr. Blumenthal, Texas Back Institute or the Charité disk. As he says, "I’m living proof that it works."
    — D. E. - Degenerative Disc Disease/ Charité Artificial Disk Replacement
  • My recovery went far better than I expected. I was amazed at how quickly I healed and was back to normal activities. I was walking around only three hours after my surgery and released from the hospital the next morning. I was relatively pain-free after the first couple days. I was previously not aware of the artificial disc studies and might have missed out on the opportunity. It can be scary to make the ultimate decision to have surgery, but if you are informed and have the right expectations, you will be amazed at the relief these options can give you. I’ve already recommended it to others... I used to feel like I was trapped in a body twice my age; now I feel like I’m 25! I tell everyone how amazing TBI is!
    — R.V. - Herniated Disc and Artificial Disc Replacement
  • It has greatly changed my life in just 13 months. For years I prayed to God to heal me because the pain was so intense, and now, I am thankful and grateful to Dr. Blumenthal and Texas Back Institute for their dedication to helping people with a debilitating condition.
    — M.A. - Herniated Disc treated with Lumbar Disc Replacement
  • [Dr. Scott Blumenthal and[ The Texas Back Institute was so thorough – they covered every aspect of how my accident did – and would – affect me... They were so caring and supportive. My recovery was amazingly easy, and there was absolutely no back pain. Living with chronic back pain is miserable, and up until recently, the options haven’t been good... Now, with the new technology, I would encourage people not to be afraid, and tell them it can truly get better. It was totally worth it.
    — R.Z. - Degenerative Disc Disease
  • I’m a 100% believer in TBI. The surgery [with Dr. Blumenthal] has done wonders for me – it was very much a life-changing event.
