Dr. Morgan's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Morgan "Dr. Morgan was raised in Dallas and attended college at Baylor University. After receiving a Bachelor of Science degree, he attended and graduated from the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He was elected as a member of Alpha Omega Alpha, the medical honor society, and was recognized with an award for outstanding academic performance by the Department of Surgery. He began his residency in Neurological Surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. When the chairman of the program moved to the University of Maryland, he was invited to accompany him to complete his training under his guidance. He completed his residency training as Chief Resident in Neurological Surgery and Neurotrauma at the University of Maryland in Baltimore. After his residency, he served as an assistant professor in the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Maryland. He also had the privilege of being the director of the neurotrauma program at the Shock Trauma Center, one of the nation's most respected institutions for treatment of trauma related disorders of the brain and spine. Dr. Morgan also was the director of the Complex Spine Surgery Program at the University of Maryland. Dr. Morgan returned to Texas in 1996 to pursue a private practice in Neurological Surgery. He was certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery in 1997. He has been named as one of Dallas' best doctors by D Magazine for the last ten years. He was the only neurosurgeon in the Dallas area named as a "Super Doctor" by Texas Monthly for 2005 and 2006. These are both determined by the nomination of other physicians. He treats complex brain and spine conditions, specializing in the latest surgical techniques for brain and spine surgery, including image-guided techniques, minimally invasive surgical procedures and use of the BrainSuite for precise treatment of intracranial tumors. Dr. Morgan has recently been named the Director of Neurosurgery for The Medical Center of Plano and Medical Center of McKinney and is the founder of the Texas Institute of Spine and Neurosurgery. His reputation for excellence is recognized as his fellow neurosurgeons routinely refer patients to him when dealing with more difficult patient cases. His patient-centered approach to treatment begins with the most conservative treatments available. While surgical procedures are often needed, Dr. Morgan has maintained that conservative treatment of spinal disorders is always the treatment of choice and believes that all nonsurgical treatments such as physical therapy or pain management should be attempted before surgery is considered. He has found that most patients can delay or avoid surgery if these measures are undertaken. When surgical treatments are required Dr. Morgan has experience with the advance treatments for disorders of the brain and spine. He performs minimally invasive approaches for procedures when appropriate. These techniques result in shorter hospital stays, less pain and quicker recovery compared to the more invasive procedures. Also, computer guided approaches to both spine and brain disorders have improved the ability to treat these problems. Dr. Morgan currently is active in programs that serve to educate other physicians in performing the newer and more advanced procedures. He has served as a consultant to several corporations and teaches courses throughout the year in conjunction with these companies at various sites around the country. He has been involved in clinical studies involving cervical and lumbar fusions, cervical artificial discs and treatment of brain tumors with chemotherapy and radiation. Dr. Morgan has dedicated his time to participate in medical missions in Vietnam and Bulgaria. During these missions, lifesaving procedures were performed on several children. A significant need for neurosurgical expertise was identified there, and Dr. Morgan will be involved with future missions to Vietnam, Bulgaria and Serbia to help train neurosurgeons there."

Dr. Morgan took time to explain my options to me and my wife. He does not "push" for surgery when not needed and takes a conservative approach. He made us feel very good about our decisions.
