Samir Lapsiwala, M.D., F.A.A.N.S.
Dr. Samir Lapsiwala graduated Magma Cum Lauded from the University of California at San Diego with a degree in neuroscience. He then went on to pursue 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 text books.
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 leaders in spine surgery in both fields of orthopedics and neurosurgery.
Dr. Lapsiwala’s treatment philosophy is, first and foremost, to care for his patients as if they were his family or friends. He is a strong believer in exhausting all conservative treatment measures first, then if surgery is needed, to take the most minimally invasive approach. Each patient has their own unique story complete with their own problems; therefore, their treatment plan must, also, be as equally unique. Dr. Lapsiwala’s goal for his patients are to create the proper treatment plan so he can 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 DFW home since 2009. He and his wife have two children. When he is not working, Dr. Lapsiwala enjoys fishing, watching sports and traveling.
