Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Dr. Francis routinely uses minimally invasive surgical techniques which benefit patients by speeding recovery and minimizing post-operative pain. Minimally invasive spine procedures are performed on an outpatient basis so our patients typically return home the same day­­­­. To learn more about our minimally invasive spine surgery techniques and whether surgery is an option for your pain relief, request a consultation in Houston or Beaumont. Or you can call us at 1-713-383-7100 to schedule your appointment.

Minimally-Invasive Surgery. Maximum Results.

Independent clinical research has shown that minimally-invasive surgery provides the benefits listed below:

  • Promotes faster recovery
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Lower complication rates
  • Increased accuracy


It makes sense to seek multiple opinions from specialists when you’re considering a possible spinal operation. Almost all of our patients do exactly that, and in the end, they come to us. There are multiple reasons why, but it is largely about trust. Our reputation has been built upon patient successes and real results, repeated many times over many years. We invite you to read the success stories from our patients to learn about our approach and their outcomes firsthand. Then discuss with your doctor about the best place to receive care.
