TBSI Neurosurgery is the proud home of four highly-skilled neurosurgeons who use the most up to date and sophisticated tools and technologies in the treatment of our patients.   TBSI Neurosurgery treats all forms of neurologic illness, including intracranial diseases such as brain tumors and brain aneurysms and is also very experienced and capable with the multidisciplinary treatment of spinal disease.  All of the surgeons are highly involved at a national level, participating in leadership committees and continuing to improve the healthcare industry for all patients across the country. 

Each neurosurgeon is dedicated to academic and research contributions to the neuroscience field.  Cultivating intellectual curiosity and a drive for excellence associated with academics permeates all of our activities and leads to beneficial outcomes for all.  In as much, the neurosurgeons hold leadership roles as active faculty members participating in the education of students and in current research efforts at The Texas A&M Health Science Center’s College of Medicine.

It is our goal to serve the Brazos Valley and Central Texas locally by providing the level of expertise and skills available in larger markets plus the added comfort, support and convenience of home. Several of our neurosurgeons completed their training at Mayo Clinic and two of them completed subsequent fellowships in neuro-oncology and endovascular neurosurgery. Through their training and experience, all of them have the skill sets to provide the best care available anywhere to you and your family here in Bryan / College Station. 

There are a number of advantages to our patients and families by offering this type of care locally.   Sometimes the treatment path chosen requires several office visits (to include pain management, imaging, or physical therapy).  We have combined all of these services in one location to ease some of these burdens and enhance efficiency and convenience.  By eliminating multiple trips to the cities (pre and post operatively), time spent commuting, overnight stays in hotels for the families, and long wait times for availability, we hope to provide the framework and best opportunity for a successful and positive experience.

The other members of the TBSI Neurosurgery team are our Physician Assistants. What is a PA? Collectively the PAs in our office have over 30 years of neurosurgical experience and have similar participation in national organizations supporting professional growth and continuous education.

TBSI Neurosurgery has expanded its presence across Central Texas to make neuroscience specialists easily accessible to patients in smaller communities.  On a regular basis, TBSI Neurosurgery has clinics in Brenham, ​Groesbeck, Huntsville, La Grange, and Temple.  For information on when our next visit to your area will be, see Events.

For many patients, surgery is not the only option for treatment. The skilled team at TBSI​ Neurosurgery will evaluate and recommend the best treatment plan for each individual patient. Should you and your provider elect surgery, you can rest assured that you have an unparalleled level of clinical skills, educational training, integrated use of advanced technology, and fully equipped facilities available and assisting you with your condition.
