Take a look inside our practice

Our Vision

At Dallas Brain, Spine & Skull Base Surgery we believe in customized patient care and a team approach to medicine, with attention to careful selection of the least invasive and most effective form of treatment for each patient. Commitment to this philosophy has resulted in maximal preservation of function, less discomfort, shorter hospital stays and durable favorable outcomes for our patients.

Our practice is a top referral destination for the treatment of patients with complex brain tumors.

We are recognized leaders in Dallas/Fort Worth in the development of minimally invasive neurosurgical concepts.

In addition to a focus in rare brain tumors, our practice uses the same successful minimally invasive surgical concepts in the treatment of other neurological diseases – including, but not limited to, cerebral aneurysms, trigeminal neuralgia and spinal tumors. Additionally, we are fully committed to providing comprehensive care for patients with a wide range of spinal disorders.

Dr. Coimbra, Dr. McGowan, and Dr. Beshay accept most health insurance plans, including Medicare. Patient referrals can be seen within 24 hours.

Delivering Proven Results

Extradural Navigation Concept

Dallas Brain, Spine & Skull Base Surgery has developed a cutting-edge concept of extradural navigation, using natural spaces in the skull to gain access to deep structures. Avoidance of early brain exposure limits the risk of potential injury to normal structures. This has resulted in improved outcomes in our patients.

No Footprint Concept

Our focus on discrete, minimally invasive exposures coupled with extradural navigation results in less manipulation of the brain. On postoperative imaging, this is illustrated by the absence of a "footprint" or edema/contusion in normal tissue.
