Spine Surgery Procedures Performed by a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon in Houston, Cypress & Tomball, TX
R. Alexander Mohr, MD, is a fellowship-trained, board-certified orthopedic spine surgeon who has been practicing with Advanced Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine since 2011. While Dr. Mohr specializes in complex spine surgery, he adheres to a conservative treatment philosophy, helping his patients find effective relief from neck and back pain using the least invasive approach possible. He is often able to offer several potential ways to help what hurts. In addition to performing cervical and lumbar spine surgery procedures in Houston, Cypress, and Tomball, Texas, Dr. Mohr provides a comprehensive range of nonsurgical treatments to address painful spine conditions.
A customized approach to neck and back pain treatment
Highly skilled and experienced in performing both traditional and minimally invasive spine surgery, Dr. Mohr tailors each patient’s treatment plan to the patient’s specific needs, recommending the most conservative approach that is likely to be effective. For instance, he may recommend nonsurgical treatment, such as physical therapy, a minimally invasive procedure or traditional open spine surgery.
With regard to surgery, Dr. Mohr is well versed in the anterior, posterior, lateral and oblique approaches. For both lumbar and cervical spine surgery procedures, he recommends the approach that is most likely to produce the best result for the patient based on the patient’s diagnosis, anatomy, body weight and other individual factors. This methodology distinguishes Dr. Mohr from many other surgeons who perform each procedure the same way every time.
The least invasive approach to spine surgery
If Dr. Mohr believes that a surgical procedure is the only viable option for helping a patient feel better, he will be straightforward about it. If the patient elects to pursue spine surgery and Dr. Mohr does not believe that a minimally invasive procedure is appropriate, he will recommend the least invasive surgical techniques. For instance, he can incorporate minimally invasive components into many open lumbar spine surgery procedures. By preserving muscle integrity and reducing soft tissue trauma on a fundamental level, Dr. Mohr is able to reduce the risk of surgical complications (including the need for revision surgery) and enhance the long-term surgical result.
