Dr. Phelps has operated on my back twice (not his fault for 2 surgeries) because of my body producing to much scar tissue. In the 4 years since my last surgery i have not had to go back to pain management. I can not recommend Dr. Phelps high enough and will never go to a different doctor if I should need additional treatment for my back.

My primary care physician referred me to Dr. Phelps. He saw me within a couple of days. I was in a great deal of pain and was happy they could see me so soon. Dr. Phelps reviewed my MRI films, showed me the areas of concern and made a plan of action. Further care has been planned out for me and I am looking forward to a much improved lifestyle. The entire office was kink, professional, curtious. Very please with all aspects, so far.
Highly Recommend Dr Phelps

After getting injections at Spine Team over a period of months, I started getting a sharp pain down my right leg. My physician referred me to Dr Phelps. Laminectomy later, pain is gone. It's been almost 2 months and still have to watch what I do but I've read it can take up to 6 months to feel totally normal. Back issues are tricky. My sister who lives out of state has had back surgery 3 times and is still suffering. I think the moderate approach Dr Phelps takes is much better than jumping into rods, screws, etc. I would recommend him in a heart beat!
Its great to hear how well you are doing after your surgery. I appreciate your kind words. My staff and myself work extremely hard to excel at all we do. Im happy to say we have been named the first and only Spine Center of Excellence anywhere in Texas. Dr Phelps

I believe Dr Phelps is a young "gun slinger" when it comes to jumping into surgery too soon. He seems more interested in quantity over quality. If the surgery fails (it did) then lets do some shots. If they fail (they did) then lets the electrical stimulator trick. I stop right there. Back to the surgery: He performed a laminotomy of L4-L5 and L5-S1 without any locking screws to secure and stabilize the structure of my back. After surgery I complained about my back being unstable. He blue me off and said some movement is normal. Before surgery, my complaint was that I had occasional leg pain about 3-4 when I had pain. After surgery my leg and hip hurts 24-7. I rate my pain now at a constant 7-8. Please beware of this guy.
Im sory that we were not able to get the results that we were hoping for. Not everyone resonds to surgical treatment as well as we would like. As far as surgery is concerned, only 1 in 50 patients that gets seen ever goes on to surgery. The vast majority (over 95%) of patients do well with our conservative treatments. We dont fuse every patient as some surgeons do as its not often needed and causes more discomfort and increases costs for the patient. We think that non-fusion surgery is a great option that allows out patients to still bend and have mobility. There are many options for people with continued pain, such as injections and dorsal stimulators to help block pain. I will continue to stand by my patients to do everything I can to help them, and if you should decide to return I will continue to do so for you as well. Dr. Phelps

I think injection were not warranted and he still injection me. Did not get any relief. Pain actually got worse. Then he tried to sell me the pain stimulator. The bill is huge so beware. Good think I checked before I had it done.
Im sorry the injections did not work. We always try to perform conservative treatments first and avoid surgery. The dorsal column stimulator to which you refer has been an extremely valuable advancement for people who suffer from chronic pain or who I do not think that surgery is a good option. I do not sell them, I only implant the device, which is covered by insurance in most cases. If you would like to talk futher or speak with patients who have had a stimulator please let me know.
