I have sen Dr Courtney a few times for different issues. When I explained the pain i am having he knew right a way what the issue was. He also suggested a couple of things for me to try rather than going directly to the surgeruy option.

Dr. Courtney is the best back and neck surgeon in Texas. He has operated on my neck and my spine with excellent results. I won’t let anyone else touch my spine. He is brilliant. It has been written that he isthe orthopedic doctor’s doctor. I would get his opinion before I considered anything concerning my back. He has a wonderful and caring staff as well.
