Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Spann "After sustaining a major spinal cord injury in 2005 due to a bicycling accident that left me initially quadriplegic, I have personal experience as a patient in need. Through excellent surgery, rehabilitation and caring from others, I was able to resume my career as a spine surgeon and my meaningful goal to help improve the lives of my patients using my own experience and decades of knowledge in the spine surgery field."

in Leander, TX |
After a previous surgery, continued pain, progressive leg weakness and years of going to pain management I had lost hope of ever feeling good. I saw Dr Spann at the urging of a family member and the surgery he completed instantly relieved 10 years of leg pain! Wish I had found him sooner!!!

I had resigned myself to living with my painful back and resulting leg muscle soreness along with a numbing foot and lower leg. I couldn't walk or stand more than 15 minutes then I'd have to either bend from a standing or sitting position to relieve the nerve pressure and get the feeling back in my foot and leg. I heard about this amazing surgeon and from the moment I spoke to him the first time I knew he would work miracles on my back. L2-S1and released a nerve. No more numbing. Amazing results

I had a fusion of my lower lumbar. L4/L5 &L5/S1 with Dr. Spann almost exactly 3 months ago and I COULD NOT BE HAPPIER!!!! I am amazed and so thankful to him and his excellent team. I just wish I hadn't waited SO long... I was so scared after reading about the recovery time and pain-- but it actually was a breeze for me. NOT KIDDING.. All of my appts, surgery etc all went like clockwork. He was caring and personal too. Feel blessed and thankful to have found him. I HIGHLY recommend him-
