Understanding Clinical Outcomes

The TRUE definition of quality is reduction of variation about the mean. As quality experts note, unless you have data, you have no business talking about quality. Texas Spine and Scoliosis, Austin — a multidisciplinary spine center with fellowship-trained spine specialists in physical therapy, physical medicine & rehabilitation, orthopedic surgery and neurosurgery — is one of the few spine centers in the nation tracking and publishing their clinical outcomes for back and neck pain and scoliosis.

Unlike most providers of back and neck pain, a regional spine center typically receives the most complex patients. At Texas Spine and Scoliosis, about one of every three patients coming in the front door has had previous back surgery at other clinics. Additionally, half of new patients coming into the spine center have red flag symptoms like numbness into a leg or arm, which are symptoms of a herniated disc, rather than simple acute back or neck muscle strain. This severity of new patients presents a challenge for a spine center. Still, the spine center emphasized non-surgical options first, holding surgery as the last resort.

2021 Clinical Outcomes for Spine Care
at Texas Spine and Scoliosis, Austin, Texas

The 2021 Clinical Non-Surgical Outcomes Report is based on the tracking of 153 patients who received non-surgical spine care at Texas Spine & Scoliosis. The outcomes data is based on an outside outcomes measurement system called “Promis”. Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) is an NIH-funded initiative to develop and validate patient reported outcomes (PROs) for clinical research and practice.

The Surgical Clinical Outcomes track those patients who failed non-surgical treatment options and needed LOW BACK spine surgery to recover from their symptoms.

At 6 months after DECOMPRESSION SURGERY, 90% of patients reported significant percent improvement in their Oswestry Disability index scores.

At 6 months after MICRO-DISCECTOMY SURGERY, 75% of patients reported significant percent improvement in their Oswestry Disability index scores.
