According to a recent story in the Wall Street Journal, the most common form of spinal cord problem of Americans over 55 is spinal cord compression. Since this group is a part of the “Baby Boomers,” largest demographic group in U.S. history, this problem is affecting many people and perhaps you are feeling its impact too. See Dr. Ted Belanger's new post about spinal cord compression here: http://texasback.com/?p=3119

Six-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer Amy Van Dyken Rouen severed her spine in an all-terrain vehicle (ATV) accident over the weekend in Arizona. Treating this type of traumatic spinal injury requires precise surgical skills and state-of-the-art technology.

There was a time when osteoporosis was a disease which was largely suffered by postmenopausal women. However recent studies have shown its incidence is spreading among younger men and women. Researchers are calling this new type of the disease: secondary osteoporosis. Dr. Ted Belanger talks about osteoporosis in our new blog post: http://texasback.com/?p=2942

I spent $1500 to fly in from out of state for my new patient appt, with surgery scheduled for two weeks later. I had sent all of the new pt forms as well as copies of MRIs for both my lower back and neck along with the new patient forms 2 months before. I was supposed to be the first appt of the morning, and arrived on time to discover that they had "lost" all of my forms and I would have to do them over--very difficult when sitting for more than 20 minutesat a time causes me horrendous back pain. It took more than 2 hours to fill out the new patient packet a second time, and meanwhile I missed my appt with the doctor. There were many appts that day, including my pre-op medical appt and a psych appt with Dr. Block (watch out, this one has power to deny or delay surgery and gave me tons more paperwork, one of which was 6 pages of questions that I received twice and didn't realize it until I was partially through the second one), After the pre-op medical appt in the hospital I stopped at a sandwich shop for my first meal of the day at 3pm--received a phone call with my first bite of food to hurry back to the office.immediately. I never did finish all the paper work because I was kicked out of the office at 5pm. They called a week later to cancel my surgery, after I had made all of the reservations, because I was on too much pain meds. Yes, I'm on pain meds, that is why I need surgery They should have already known how much medicine I was taking due to severe problems in my spine in neck and lower back since this info was included in the info I sent to them months before--was it not reviewed? Now my surgery has been called off until I get on a lower level of pain medicine--They would have saved me $1500 and a lot of pain by just telling me this to begin with, before me coming for the appt. They were disorganized and seemed not to allow for the fact that I have a much more serious condition than many of their patients, disk replacement and minimally invasive treatment are not even options for me--just fusion. I felt like a number: that no one had MY intrests at heart, especially that very expensive day I don't know now what I will do...

I was in for a New Patient appointment worst appointment ever. The wait was ridiculous talk about a 2 hour wait and not only that there were patients longer than I was there waiting to be roomed. Once roomed the Medical Assistant is rude. What a way to start off the New Patient appointment by saying well which pain would you prefer to be fixed. No if I am there for a New Patient visit it is because I am there to be seen for everything and discuss options not what would you like worked on. Then in order to get everything fixed because of not having x-rays done prior to being seen. Overall I am disgusted with this clinic. No emotion and no way of showing a new person how things would be like in the future. I am so glad I walked away when I did. It would of been a disgrace if I wasted my money and time any more with some ridiculous place. Never in my life would I say this but I am so grateful I work in the Medical field to understand how not to treat my patients and how well we are organized and micromanaged. So thankful my employer shows me what expectations should be for an organization who claims patient care is there priority.

I have been a patient at Texas Back Institute for two major operations, the staff and surgeons are incredible, They do care 100% about you and your health and the pain and suffering you are in, I am a spine study patient and they continue to treat and monitor me, Any treatments they tried such as steroid injections was discussed with me prior and I was well informed they may or may NOT help my condition, They did everything I feel in my heart to avoid a major operation, With my current age and condition of my spine I am certain they will be the ONLY Institute that I would even consider when my other failing disc's finally decide they can no longer hold my weight. You are more than welcome to contact me if you have any questions, I know many of the staff and can offer my advise or past experience. Brian Harrington

Surprised at the reviews here. I found Dr. Shellock to be caring and compassionate, very realistic and open to different options. Subsequently had a back injection that went very smoothly and plan to have a surgery in Dec. with this group. Also, haven't waited more than a few minutes for any appointment so far and no paperwork problems.

Dr. Jessica Shellock and Tonya is who our complaint is about! 1st Appointment of 4 today was scheduled for 9:30...Tonya finally comes to get my huband at 10:32! 2nd appoinment of the day was at 10:15! Missed that one! During which no one even cared enough to update us with why we were waiting so long. I suggested that a courtesy call would have been nice to Tonya and she says " What kind of courtesy call would you of liked?" Which is absolutely an absurd thing to say! The kind that says "Hey Mr. Adams... just wanted to let you know we're running a little behind this morning, so you don't have to rush to be here by 9:30... coming from north of MCKINNEY! I didn't want you to have to wait for an HOUR in the waiting room...in the HORRIBLE amount of pain I know your in." ....Maybe the kind that comes with a little compassion! Anyone that drives on HWY 75 right now knows exactly what I'm talking about! You can't get anywhere on time...but we made sure we did for nothing! 15 MINUTES LATER.... In comes Dr. Jessica Shellock with the most horrible attitude I have ever experienced from a DOCTOR in my life! She was rude, careless, abrubt, disrespectful, snide, inconsiderate and every other word in that category you can think of. She procedes to say "If you want his treatment to be done here then this is what you have to deal with." I was obviously getting very frustrated so she says that she was going to "chalk it up" to I was tired of seeing my husband in pain! NEVER once taking responsiblity for her tartiness or behavior!! We we're actually relieved that we were finally getting somewhere...her attitudte changed EVERYTHING! I stated I that I run a schedule for a doctor and how I handle it when we are running late. She then says to me "Well this is a specialty office." Well thats when she made an ass of herself by not knowing I also work for a specialty office and our doctor WOULD NEVER treat a patient that pays his salary like that!!! No patients= NO JOB!! That level of care can't be accepted by anyone and to often it is because "thats just the way it is now". Then your stuck between a rock and a hard place because of your pain level. Her attitude was a total "you need me, I don't need you" approach. We have been conditioned to think that is acceptable when no it is not. Just because YOU are a "DOCTOR" does not mean your time is more important than anyone else's. You put your pants on the same way I do...1 leg at a time! My husband is a business owner and every minute he is wasting at a rude dr's office is costing him alot of money!! We will pay and wait if the level of care is worth it! I know a lot of you reading this can relate! All we were asking for was a little care and compassion where there was ZERO. Everyone BUT DR. JESSICA SHELLOCK AND TONYA has been great so far. If they make this right I will be back with a good report...We'll see how it goes...

They are very unorganized and seem to be more about the $$ than the patient. My doctor could not explain things well at all. Every request I made of them they messed up. They LOST my MRI results and made me buy another copy. I was told by several other doctors and neurosurgeons that i need IMMEDIATE surgery. Texas Back Institute was about to put me on $1600 streroid injections (which do NOTHING for my 2 herniated discs and i'm out of pocket) over the course of the next few years and see what happens. I can hardly walk now. I am told I will be paralyzed by then if I don't have surgery now. They do not know what they are doing. They would take me for everything with the shots and followups then I'd be paralyzed. DONT TRUST THIS PLACE.
