Tom Cartwright is a board certified spinal surgeon practicing for the last twenty years in Houston, Texas. He attended Texas A&M University for his undergraduate studies and received his M.D. degree from UTMB in Galveston. After completing an orthopaedic residency program in NYC he did additional spinal training in both Plano, Texas and Nottingham, England.
One of the best parts of his job is educating his patients about their spines. This includes different spinal conditions and their causes, the various types of treatment available, and most importantly how to prevent problems in the first place. He loves the whole concept of Know Yourself because it expands this philosophy of education to the entire body.
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife of 26 years and their four wonderful children.
