Team Treatment for the Global Community
Frank Feigenbaum, M.D. is part of a unique multi-disciplinary team providing neurosurgical care with a strong focus on meningeal cysts, such as Tarlov cysts.Dr. Feigenbaum is the only neurosurgeon in the world who has treated over 1,500+ symptomatic Tarlov cyst patients with statistically significant outcomes study results. His refined surgical treatment incorporates the newest advances in neurosurgical care, including computer-assisted image guided and minimally invasive approaches to surgery.
Many patients who seek Dr. Feigenbaum’s expertise have experienced countless specialty physician visits, multiple surgeries and feel like they are at the end of their rope. With debilitating back pain, everyday life and activities become impossible. Tarlov cysts are dilations of the nerve root sheaths that create abnormal sacs filled with spinal fluid causing progressively painful radiculopathy (nerve pain). If left untreated, patients suffer incredible pain and dysfunction with the disease remaining undetected for far too long.
Frank Feigenbaum, M.D. has treated more than 1,500+ Tarlov and meningeal cyst patients. His specialized techniques and outcomes during the past few years singles him out as the only Tarlov Cyst surgeon worldwide to show statistical improvements in his patients. Partnering with Sarah Cannon Research Institute (a strategic research organization focusing on advancing therapies for patients) and Medical City IRB adds credibility and independent validation of these improvements.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery (MIS): Dr. Feigenbaum is fully trained in surgical techniques which involve making smaller incisions and reducing the amount of tissue damage beneath the skin.
