As part of one of the largest physician owned hospitals in the country, our patients are not a business transaction but members of our family. We insist on the best for them.
The Neurosurgery Institute at Renaissance is South Texas’s premier center for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery and Neuroendoscopy. It is the only facility south of San Antonio in which a Board Certified Pediatric Neurosurgeon cares for children. All pediatric specialists are Board Certified.

The guiding philosophy of care at the Neurosurgery Institute at Renaissance centers upon a "triad of preservation" involving the patient's time, appearance, and function. We respect your time and make all efforts to schedule an immediate appointment and ensure that you are seen at the time you are scheduled. We don't believe in "waiting" rooms. Preservation and restoration of neurological function is our only benchmark of success. Maximizing patient function, minimizing infections and complications of hospital stays, combined with surgical expertise are the means to that end.
The Patient’s Role
Understanding your responsibilities
You are the only one who can decide which treatment is best for you. It is important that you recognize that you have a responsibility to participate in, and take ownership of, any decisions involving your health care. You will be asked to make the final decision about what is best for you, so ask questions about anything you do not understand. Your family and close friends are an important part of the collaborative process. We encourage you to include them in any education sessions we provide concerning your condition. If you choose to have surgery, we will make every effort to keep family members informed of your progress and to involve them in your recovery process. Deciding which treatment option is best for you involves weighing the risks and benefits associated with each option. If you eventually choose to have surgery, your physical condition and your mental attitude will determine your body's ability to heal. You must approach your surgery with confidence, a positive mental attitude and a thorough understanding of the anticipated outcome. You should have realistic goals — and be willing to work steadily to achieve those goals.
