Samir B. Lapsiwala, MD, FAANS, FACS, is an experienced Neurosurgeon at Fort Worth Brain & Spine Institute, where patients are treated like family. The practice has two offices in Fort Worth and additional offices in Granbury, Cleburne, and Weatherford, Texas, so that patients can choose the nearest location.
Dr. Lapsiwala graduated Magma Cum Lauded from the University of California at San Diego with a degree in neuroscience. He then pursued his medical degree at Pennsylvania State University, followed by a seven-year neurosurgery residency at the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
During residency, Dr. Lapsiwala received many awards and grants, published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, and wrote chapters in textbooks.
After residency, he was privileged to complete a complex spine surgery fellowship at the Cleveland Clinic under the guidance of Dr. Edward Benzel. He was also granted the unique opportunity to train with spine surgery leaders in both orthopedics and neurosurgery fields.
Dr. Lapsiwala has a large amount of experience dealing with Herniated Discs, Spinal Stenosis, and Spinal Fusion.
His treatment philosophy is, first and foremost, to care for his patients as if they were his family or friends. He strongly believes in exhausting all conservative treatment measures first, then taking the most minimally invasive approach if surgery is needed.
Each patient has a unique story, complete with their own problems; therefore, their treatment plan must be equally unique. Dr. Lapsiwala’s goal for his patients is to create the proper treatment plan to get them back to enjoying their lives as quickly as possible.
Voted on by his medical peers, Dr. Lapsiwala has been selected as a “Top Doc” in Neurosurgery by Southlake Style Magazine in 2017.
Dr. Lapsiwala grew up in Los Angeles, California, but has called Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) home since 2009. He and his wife have two children. When he is not working, Dr. Lapsiwala enjoys fishing, watching sports, and traveling.
