What Patients are Saying About Texas Back Institute

  • The Texas Back Institute team was wonderful. Everyone treated me as an individual, not as a patient. My advice for anyone with back pain – do injections first. But if that doesn’t work and your life is as bad as mine was, have surgery at Texas Back Institute.

    — R.V.
  • I had a 360-degree fusion of my L4 L5 in March 2011 and Dr. Michael Duffy was my surgeon. He had told me prior to surgery “We might be able to reduce your pain by about 70%.” I have no pain… I got the life back that I wanted.
    — R.C.
  • I had a SI Fusion at the Texas Back Institute and I am status post or after surgery – 5 weeks. I don’t even know how to describe it. Everything was just perfect. Everybody explained everything to me, everybody took excellent care of me…
