Dr. Brent Morgan, MD
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.

Patient Comments (10)
in Sherman Tx |
Dr Morgan and his entire staff were very friendly concerned and helpful. My first visit I felt like I had been going there for years and everyone knew me. I have never been this comfortable in any other doctors office.
in Richardson, TX |
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.
in Mckinney, TX |
Dr. Morgan asks a lot of questions and he allows you to ask a lot of questions! He takes his time to ensure that he understands your concerns. My wife first used Dr. Morgan a couple of years ago and we have recommended the doctor to a friend who met with him and thanked us for recommending him.
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Morgan professionally is an outstanding neurosurgeon. More importantly, he has genuine care for patients. His care does not stop at the hospital. He always has a deep care and concern for patients. This is what I feel is so important about Dr. Morgan.
in Fairview, TX |
I was suffering from back pain from two previous lumbar spine surgeries in 2014. I searched for an excellent spine neurosurgeon and found Dr. Morgan. I had my initial examination which was followed up with a Myelogram and CT scan. My diagnosis was a tethered spinal cord and a pedicle screw that was in my existing hardware causing pain from my 2014 back surgeries. My surgery was completely successful. I highly recommend Dr. Morgan and his staff if you require excellent and outstanding care.
in Sherman TX |
Was very pleased with the diagnosis & recommended plan of treatment for my neck\arm pain.
in Garland, TX |
After moving to Garland four years ago, I began searching for new doctors, including a neurosurgeon for my husband. The thought of picking a doctor from an insurance book was pretty scary. Luckily for us, a family friend, familiar with doctors in the area, recommended Dr. Morgan. We liked him right away and was impressed with his medical knowledge and ability to find just the right treatment for my husband! We are so thankful to have found such an exceptional doctor!!!
in Mount Pleasant, TX |
Dr. Morgan never hesitate to explain and calm my fears. Always diligent with response to my concerns.
in Pottsboro, TX |
I have known Dr Morgan 20+ years as a Registered Nurse who would take care of his patients post surgery and now I am the patient. I would not consider any other neurosurgeon to assess me or make decisions in the care of my back. Dr Morgan has proven to me over the past 20+ years he is an outstanding physician in neurosurgery.
in Denton, TX |
Long story short I was a trama patient, he tried something knew on me and it failed. My spine never fused and 1 year later my screws broke. I never got better always experiencing extreme pain. His answer was well you broke your back its always going to be this way. His post op care is the real reason for this review. There was absolutely none. He didn't have any notes from my visits. He was short, rushed, and did not care. He didn't even know how many weeks out I was from surgery.
