Tired of Countless Physician Visits without Answers?

If You Experience Debilitating Back Pain, We Can Help.

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, because very few neurosurgeons can treat this disease, it is often undetected for far too long

World-renowned Experience with a History of Successful Outcomes

Dr. Feigenbaum has extensive, world-renowned experience treating 1500+ Tarlov and meningeal cyst patients.  His specialized techniques and outcomes research starting in 2007, singles him out as one of a few neurosurgeons worldwide to show statistical improvements in his patients.  Partnering with Sarah Cannon Research Institute and North Texas Institutional Review Board (IRB) at Medical City adds credibility and independent validation of these improvements.
