Dr. Booher and his clinical team believe in exhausting all non-invasive protocols first and if needed, employing the least invasive procedures necessary to treat the patients.
A fellowship trained neurosurgeon specializing in the latest minimally invasive spine techniques, Dr. Grant Booher utilizes robotic assisted spinal surgery, cervical disc replacement, chiari decompression, minimally invasive discectomy including endoscopic approaches, complex spine surgery and spinal tumors.
Born and raised in Arlington, TX and a graduate of Martin High School, Dr. Booher then graduated with honors from the University of Texas at Austin with bachelor’s degrees in Neurobiology and Psychology.

During his Neurosurgical training he completed a minimally invasive spine fellowship with special focus on robotic applications. As one of the first in the nation to train in advanced image guidance and robotic assisted techniques,Dr. Booher finds cutting edge ways of giving his patient’s the best possible spinal treatment.
In addition to his many spinal procedures, his practice focuses on degenerative lumbar, thoracic and cervical disease/injury. This skillset has led many of his peers to consider him the leading authority on robotic and minimally invasive techniques in North Texas. He has published numerous articles and textbook chapters on robotic spine surgery. He also serves as an instructor teaching other surgeons the intricacies of these advanced techniques.
