Dallas Neurosurgical & Spine (DNS) began in the early 1960s as a merger of two pioneering neurosurgical groups, and was formally established in 1973.
Today, DNS is the longest-established private neurosurgical specialty practice group in North Texas, with seven full-time, board-certified neurosurgeons supported by an experienced, patient-focused staff.
DNS brings together a diversity and depth of training from prestigious medical programs across the United States. Each has exceptional skill in the latest, most innovative surgical techniques for neurological and spine disorders, including microsurgery, endoscopic surgery, minimally invasive spine surgery, Gamma Knife® focused radiation, complex and comprehensive spine surgery and nonoperative pain management.
While brain surgeries are a significant part of our practice, the majority our surgeries that we perform are surgeries of spine. Each of our neurosurgeons has received specialized training in neurological disorder diagnosis and treatment of the spine through a seven-year residency – more surgical training than found in any other specialty. Our extensive medical training and years of experience mean DNS is unsurpassed in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of disorders that affect the entire nervous system.
Each year, it has been our privilege to provide care for nearly 6,000 patients, not just from North Texas but from around the country and as far away as Germany and Japan.
