Special Interests:

Dr. Andrew Parkinson specializes in diagnosing and treating disorders of the Spine. Dr. Parkinson completed his Fellowship at The Texas Back Institute, with specialty training in all areas of spine care, including surgical and non surgical treatments and interventional pain therapies. Patients are treated with the latest proven surgical techniques including minimally invasive surgery, microsurgery, and deformity correction. “Surgery as a last option” is the cornerstone of Dr. Parkinson’s care philosophy to spine treatment. Through diagnostic procedures, pain management therapies, patient education, physical therapy, research and return-to-work programs, solutions to back and neck pain can often be realized without surgery. In those patients who are candidates for surgery, Dr Parkinson uses the latest cutting edge surgical techniques, performing the most common outpatient procedures to the most complex cases.
