Mission

Our center located in central Texas (Austin, Houston, Waco, San Antonio) transforms the lives of children and adults with scoliosis, spinal deformity, and complex spinal problems.

This is done in a patient and family centered environment, with a focus on conservative care first if there is no risk of permanent damage or disease progression. Counseling and education are the cornerstone of this relationship.

Initial treatment at our Austin, Texas location may include innovative diagnostics, genetics testing, bracing, and injections. Surgery, if indicated, proceeds with a preference for motion preserving or minimally invasive options.

Dr. Matthew Geck is the co-chief of this scoliosis and spine practice that is a regional referral center for Texas (from Austin to Houston, Lubbock to El Paso, Dallas to Temple), Louisiana and New Mexico. Dr. Geck treats the most complex spinal problems, and have expertise in scoliosis surgery, revision scoliosis surgery, spine surgery, complex spine surgery, realignment surgery, and spinal osteomy.
