I just went through my 3rd spine surgery with Dr. Josey. I have a family history of back issues so unfortunately I’m a frequent flyer. You cannot find a more compassionate and knowledgeable doctor who is willing to spend the time it takes to address any issues or concerns that arise.View on Google

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Minimally invasive surgery with our Austin, TX, practice can reduce muscle and tissue damage, shorten hospital stays and recovery times, and minimize the scarring associated with surgery.
We use conservative endoscopic techniques to perform this minimally invasive surgery.
We Offer Various Treatments For Various Problems
Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin features state-of-the-art facilities where patients can seek a wide variety of orthopedic services, including spine surgery. Our Austin, TX, spine surgeons perform the following treatments using minimally invasive endoscopic techniques:
A discectomy removes parts of the intervertebral discs that apply painful pressure to the spinal cord or nerves. Our doctors can also perform disc replacement surgery to remove a damaged spinal lumbar or cervical disc and replace it with an artificial one.
This surgical procedure relieves pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. It is commonly performed for patients with injuries, herniated discs, tumors, or age-related changes in the spine.
This procedure addresses bone deformities and relieves pain associated with spinal compression fractures. It is performed by inserting a tube into the desired vertebra and inflating a balloon within. A cement-like substance is injected into the created cavity, the balloon is removed, and the substance hardens.
This surgery serves to stabilize sections of the spine. The spine surgeon connects the vertebrae and secures them in the desired position, allowing the bones a chance to fuse.
Removal of Spinal Tumors
Tumors can cause pain, neurological problems, and even paralysis if they progress, but our doctors can perform tumor removal surgery. This may or may not involve the removal of any bone that has been damaged by the tumor, in which case it may also be necessary to reinforce the spine.
We encourage patients to keep up with nonsurgical treatments, such as exercise, hormone replacement, physical therapy, medication, or bracing, but if needed, we can perform lumbar fusion therapy to treat scoliosis.
"Brilliant, kind, and meticulous." Gratitude From Our Patients in the Austin, TX, Area
Dr. Josey is not only super smart (he found a bulging disc that two other ortho surgeons missed), but he has a great bedside manner. His personability and the fact that he doesn’t seem “cut happy” is a rarity in the orthopedic field. He took his time with me and made me feel like he actually cared. I highly recommend Dr. Josey!View on Google
Dr Heinrich is a brilliant, kind, and meticulous meticulous surgeon, who even designed the prosthetic for the knees. He quickly got me back on the dance floor after surgery, and discovered a bulging disc and then referred me to Dr Moghimi, who was able to address the issue non surgically. The doctors and staff provide the best quality care and results with minimally invasive surgery. I highly recommend Orthopedic Specialists of Austin.View on Google
