Dr. Moon joined the practice in September 2023 and specializes in awake craniotomy with brain mapping, brain and spine tumors, eyebrow craniotomy and more.

Both providers employ minimally invasive techniques to help clients on their journey back to living healthy, active lives. Dr. Moon said both he and Dr. Morgan enjoy spending time listening to patients and discovering the root cause of the issue they’re experiencing. Both doctors’ primary goal is helping patients regain their quality of life.

“I love seeing patients for their neurosurgical issues and seeing how I can best help them with my hands,” Dr. Moon said. “There are less than 5,000 [neurosurgeons] across the country. So it's a very select field ... It’s certainly a very special calling.”

Conservative treatment

Dr. Morgan and Dr. Moon believe in conservative management, which means they will only suggest surgery if there is a true neurological deficit. Dr. Moon said daily exercise, physical therapy, water therapy and steroid injections are a few options that can help relieve patients’ pain.

By exhausting other options first, patients can reduce unnecessary risk and get back to living their lives more quickly.

When to seek out neurosurgery

Patients may decide neurosurgery is the best option after a traumatic motor vehicle accident or an acute fall. Neurosurgery could also be an option for patients who have soldiered through low back pain for many years and want to discuss surgery as an option.

If individuals ever experience a sudden onset of weakness or are experiencing pain in their back or neck along with fevers, they should seek treatment right away.

Advanced technology

Designed to provide advanced neurosurgical care BSW Neurosurgery and Spine Associates - McKinney offers progressive techniques and innovative technology, including robotic technology. The robot helps surgeons more accurately put instrumentation in patients’ spine, leading to smaller surgeries and less recovery time.

Finding treatment

Dr. Morgan said BSW Neurosurgery and Spine Associates - McKinney is equipped to take care of patients.

“We have access to all the tools, and they're in good hands when they come to us,” Dr. Morgan said. “There are very few things that are so specialized that we wouldn't offer it [here]. We really are a full-service neurosurgery site.”
