Dr. Douglas Won, director and founder of Minimally Invasive SpineCARE, located in Dallas, Texas, is a fellowship-trained spine surgeon, board-certified by The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Chosen as one of America's Top Orthopedist/Spine Surgeons by Research Consumers' Council of America, he provides the most comprehensive methods of minimally invasive and endoscopic (camera-assisted) laser spine surgeries available to treat cervical, thoracic and lumbar disorders, and dedicates 100% of his spine practice to only minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Won has pioneered some of the surgical techniques utilizing the healthcare industry’s smallest incisions to avoid traditional, open back surgeries of the neck and spine.

Dr. Won attended medical school at the University of Texas, Galveston, TX and completed his residency in orthopedics at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. He was fellowship-trained in orthopaedic spine and neuro-spine at William Beaumont Spine Center, Royal Oak, MI, and in deformities of the spine at Washington University, St. Louis. His dual-fellowship training is recognized as the highest level in spine surgery training.

Dr. Won was the first surgeon in Texas to perform Micro-Invasive endoscopic laser spine surgery with a 3mm incision. With minimal blood loss, and fast recovery, the patient may return to work in just a few days. Dr. Won also recognizes that surgery is not always the best option and uses the latest nonsurgical methods to treat neck and back pain prior to exploring surgical options. This allows a large percentage of his patients to improve through nonsurgical, conservative treatment options administered at his fully comprehensive spine center.

An active scholar and researcher, Dr. Won is constantly seeking newer and safer methods of practicing minimally invasive spine surgery techniques. In the pursuit of his dream of having a fully integrated healthcare system, Dr. Won focuses on patient care, and lowering their healthcare costs without compromising on quality.
