Spotlight on north texas Texas Back Institute In the world of medicine, there are very few independent practices that have made a name for themselves. North Texas’s own Texas Back Institute (TBI) is one of those, having become world renowned for their game-changing research philosophy. For over 35 years, Texas Back Institute has been ahead of the field in research techniques and technologies for spinal patients, including bringing disk replacement to the United States. Techniques developed by TBI are not only used across the world, but doctors and researchers from across the globe visit the facilities to see what the buzz is all about. Visitors from China, South Africa, India, Germany and England, just to name a few, come to learn western medicine, see the financial side of the business and observe the strategic relationships TBI has formed with other medical facilities in North Texas and beyond. More recently, Texas Back Institute has partnered with a third-party company to begin building surgical facilities in China. Medical fellows from both countries have traveled overseas in exchanges to help make the partnership excel. 30 www.ntc-dfw.org FALL/WINTER 2015
