Considered the pioneer in Transcutaneous Lumbar Disc Resection, Dr. Marks has performed this minimally invasive spine surgery to over 5,000 discs. Considered a top surgeon in Richardson, his commitment to providing the best in patient care has helped establish him as a sought-after spine surgeon throughout Texas and surrounding states.

Using the latest medical techniques as well as specifically crafted proprietary tools, Dr. Marks performs multiple types of back surgeries ranging from complex fusions to minimally invasive procedures.

While many of his new patients are recommended by former patients, he also is a sought-after consultant to the M.D., D.O., and D.C. medical communities.
