Helped my mom when no one else could
My mother fractured her C1 and C2 vertebrae a couple of years back. After living in a brace for 18 months, her neck hadn't healed properly. Her regular doctor said, Oh well, she's too old, tough break. After another fall, she was seen by Dr Alexander who thought he could do something for her. We just wrapped up our two year post spinal fusion surgery visit. We tried a different solution prior to surgery - Dr Alexander was straight with us about the likelihood of that solution not working, but we needed to try it first, due to ethical guidelines. We are very pleased with the result, not only would we go to him again, but I'd recommend him to everyone I care about - he's the kind of doctor that other doctors want to be. PS: when he was running late due to complications in surgery, he had the office get catering from Bill Millers for the patients waiting.

Thanks to Dr. Alexander and his staff, I can walk again. I suffer from spinal stenosis, myelitis, disc degenerative disease and sciatica nerve pain just to name a few. I have had seven previous back surgeries in Houston before moving to Corpus Christi in 2019. I was 90% paralyzed from the waist down and was suffering from a massive bacterial infection. Dr. Alexander immediately admitted me into the hospital and three days later performed his first surgery to remove all prior hardware to tackle the bacterial infection. Eight months later Dr. Alexander performed his second surgery, a laminectomy, to help relieve spinal cord pressure due to my spinal stenosis. Last December, Dr. Alexander performed his third surgery, a TLIF, to help alleviate spinal cord pressure due to my myelitis. Thanks to Dr. Alexander’s persistence, surgical skills and experience along with a lot of physical therapy, I can walk again! Dr. Alexander and his staff have always treated me with excellent care.

I would highly recommend Dr. Alexander. First of all the staff was really friendly. Secondly, when Dr Alexander came in to meet and talk to us, he was very friendly and explained everything clearly to us. He made me feel comfortable and I knew then that I could trust him. He was very positive about my procedure. After my surgery and even up til now , not once have I needed any kind of pain medicine. I am so happy to have my life back to normal and pain free. I am truly blessed. Thank you Dr. Alexander.

Terrible office management. We waited 4 hours and finally decided to leave. We decided that this poor attitude and lack of respect towards patients would most definitely reflect their attitude towards surgery. I know my time is not nearly as valuable as some but that was 4 hours lost for good.

I just went in for my 18 month checkup. Before the surgery I could barley walk and now I am up to a mile a day. My sciatic nerve issues have not returned and the pain is at a level that I can treat it with over counter drugs. This is an awesome result. Great Surgeon, great staff. I would recommend Dr. Alexander to anyone who wants or needs results.

I cannot explain just how grateful I am to Dr. Alexander. I suffered for years with excruciating pain on my lower back down my right leg. I had not slept on my own bed in at least 2 years. I handed my life over to him and he has given it back to me 99% better than it was before. I had my surgery March of this year and I can honeslty say that I do not feel any of the pain I had before. He has given me my life back to enjoy with my family once again. I highly recommend him.

In 2010, my husband fell 12’ through a ceiling, landing on his head on a concrete floor. His neck was broken in 4 places, as well as other life-threatening injuries. Dr. Matthew Alexander performed life-saving neurosurgery, and after 59 days in 3 hospitals, he made a miraculous recovery. Five months later, Dr. Alexander removed a tumor at the junction of C1-C2, and 7 months after that, he removed another tumor from around his brain stem, in an extremely difficult place to operate. Nine months later, he required lower back surgery -- his 4th neurosurgery within 2 years, performed by Dr. Alexander. In 2016, I had a spinal cord injury, and Dr. Alexander successfully performed an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at C4-C7. Dr. Alexander is an experienced, super-dedicated neurosurgeon, and works late/long hours to accommodate EVERYONE! .We would NEVER consider going to anyone else. He saved our quality of life multiple times, and we will be forever grateful!

I am a 68 yr old female. Doctor Alexander has saved my life. I was in a wheelchair this time last year. He performed my surgery and cleaned out a deadly spinal infection, I was in absolute agony when he saved me. There are not enough words to express the kindness brains and talent this man has been Blessed with. There is no other Doctor better than him. I am walking, infection free, and just about pain free. The office and staff are wonderful and you can expect a wait. All good things are worth waiting for. God Bless this man.

Dr. Alexander has performed surgery for spinal compression fractures on my 92 year old sister. The fractures cause excruciating pain and Dr. Alexander has alleviated the pain. He is very caring and takes the time to show and explain the procedures that will be done. You might have to wait, but the wait is worth it if you will get relieve from pain.

Superior neurosurgeon. Had a great surgical experience and recovery was quick. This was the second surgery in my neck. The previous was in 1997 where three disks were removed. I was suffering from extreme headaches. Now I am free of the headaches caused from my neck.

I had lower back surgery with Dr Alexander in early 2018. He is a very good and thorough surgeon. Like he told me he can’t take all my pain away. He did alleviate the pain. He always does his best to tend to my back pain. I would recommend him to anyone that needs back surgery. N Bueno

After 4 hours I was 4th in line then the staff said it was best to call in at the time of your appointment, then they will call me back 30 minutes before the doctor can see me, they will call me back in Ingleside to come back and see Dr Alexander - I quickly saw one of his associates and when he showed me my x-ray I couldn't see the fracture - left and never went back to him Other patients said he sometimes orders pizza at 8pm for those still waiting

When I began losing feeling in my fingers, Dr. Alexander and his team quickly (and confidently) diagnosed, communicated, and arranged procedure on neck vertebrae to "fix." His knowledge, skills, and process is so good that this is practically an in-patient evolution. Although wait times in lobby and exam room may vary, follow-up appointments are stress free with an attentive staff and scheduling (office open until 7pm). You are likely reading this and researching this Doctor due to a referral - I can confidently say that you will be in good hands if fortune finds you with an option to have Dr. Alexander and his team at South Texas Brain & Spine review your case.
