  • Competent and compassionate!
    Dr. Cubbage always has time to calmly and clearly discuss my medical situation. He's clearly a very accomplished surgeon, but his compassion for his patients is equally incredible. When we (his patients) are faced with important health issues and decisions, his calmness and very intentional care is an almost immeasurable gift.

  • Bertolotti's Syndrome Education Group (USA)
    Back in Houston for my follow up with Dr. He with Dr Cubbage's office. My Bertolottis joint block injection was extremely successful. Three weeks later and pain is just now starting to come back. I was 100% pain free for over two weeks. Now I'm at 50% pain free from where I was before the injection. She sent her report to Dr Cubbage and his lady that does the scheduling emailed me immediately and said that he wanted an updated MRI, already did an updated CT scan. Houston MRI got me in TODAY for the MRI and immediately gave me a disk of it. Took it and the CT scan disc to Dr Cubbage's office in cypress and Vickie (the scheduler) penciled me in for a date for surgery sometime between now and August. Once Dr Cubbage reviews the images she will get my surgery permanently scheduled and will let me know when. I am so freaking happy, nervous, and a little scared. I am glad that I took the step and asked my PCP to refer me to Dr Cubbage.

  • I had a spinal fusion by Dr. Cubbage in TX a little over a month ago. He prescribed me this device called a SpinalStim by a company called Orthofix. I have to wear it 2 hours a day for probably 4-5 months. This device uses a low- level PEMF to help activate the body’s natural healing process with a 97% success with it’s effectiveness in healing spinal fusions! He also said that they use this device for people who have had a failed spinal fusion. I was thinking that maybe this information might help someone!

  • Dr. Cubbage does God’s handy work. I must admit I tried everything not to have disc replacement surgery. After 9 months of fighting the fact that my disc was not going to slip back into place I had to take the plunge. I was in serious pain and had very to little movement in my neck. I had forgotten what it felt like to finish a bottle of water or take that last bit of a glass of wine. I couldn’t look up at the stars or put my neck back to rinse my hair. I had no quality of life pre-surgery. I was depressed and in major pain. Dr. Cubbage and his staff truly care for their patients. He has a sweet disposition and a great bedside manner. I’m now 4 months post surgery and my neck feels amazing! I cried when I could look up at the stars. My only regret is not doing it sooner. I understand if you’re scared to take that leap, I was too, but God gave Dr. Cubbage a true gift and I promise you’ll be in amazing hands- literally- by choosing Dr. Cubbage. I cried tears of joy on my last post op appointment because of the long journey I had with him and his staff. They are all a God send and I couldn’t be more thankful for each of them. I will forever be grateful for the rest of my life.

  • Dr Cubbage and his staff are some of the most attentive orthos I have ever been to. I had to have surgery on my lower back and I could not be any happier with the results. When I woke up the pain was immediately gone and only surgical pain remained. Would highly recommend Dr Cubbage to anyone with back or neck issues!

  • I didn’t see Dr Cubbage, saw Tim who is great) because this was a visit where I only needed an x-ray to make sure the pain I was experiencing wasn’t from coming from any movement in last years surgery. I can say that everyone on Dr Cubbage’s team is excellent and saw me through my surgery long after…

  • Dr. Cubbage & staff are very friendly, knowledgeable and informative. Dr. Cubbage fixed my neck 8 years ago and I am back for lower back surgery now. I trust his expertise.

  • Dr. Cubbage explains the medical issues in a way that a layperson can understand, which allows the patient to feel involved and participating in his treatment. Unlike most doctors, he takes the time to explain in detail the medical issues and the plan to solve it. Last, he really listens to the patient’s concerns and anxieties about a given treatment or procedure and prepares his treatment plan to address and allay same. Also, Vickie and others that work for Dr. Cubbage are fantastic. The best I have encountered, and I have had a lot of surgical treatments. They take care of everything for you—scheduling, insurance, etc—so the patient can focus on treatment. I highly recommend.

  • Dr. Cubbage has the hands of God! He has truly been blessed with stability and effectiveness of putting my body back together. His staff is amazing- Tim & Vickie. I appreciate your patience with me. Last year, I had C3,4,5,6,7 replaced in my neck. I was 50 years old with a spine fracture that cracked and twisted my odontoid as well as a C2 fracture that healed. Superman himself had a C2 fracture and we know his story. God blessed me with healing, but many years I suffered as this happened at a very young age! When I finally made my way to Dr. Cubbage, my arms and legs w/feet were going numb. I had severe sciatica and wanted to die. After his surgery, I felt like my injury was fresh and I was immediately in his office before a follow up to get pain meds. He and his staff understood my misery and stepped in to accommodate my helplessness. It was a slow painful recovery but I wasn’t paralyzed! I could have been many years prior and he stepped in and saved me & my life. I had contemplated a variety of resources to end my misery, he wouldn’t hear that. For the first time someone cared. As I stand I currently need S1 L5 replaced. I do know there are consequences but fully trust God lead me to the hands of Dr. Cubbage. I appreciate his patience & his staff as well, they have tried their best to help me pull through. Though I still have unrelated issues, they listen as if they’re by my side going through my misery, I refuse to go anywhere else. I am more than happy with my medical care & the warming of completeness of their concern. I appreciate his hugs, Tim’s hugs, Vicki’s hugs & their follow ups and eagerness to get me in their office even on an emergency. Dr. Cubbage is a class act God giving gift with his hands. I love him for saving my life, my mobility & his fabulous medical family. They’re complete package that allow me one more day of living. I don’t need to be a 100%! I expect I will have other issues, but I know in my soul they’re there. I couldn’t be more appreciative, I love them all…

  • After going to 4 different surgeons and being dismissed for over a year about constant back pain Dr. Cubbage was the only Doctor who not only listened to me but also was able to find/fix the issue I had been having for such a long time! Being 21 years old and having back surgery was not on my list and definitely wasn’t something I wanted but I trusted him and I’m so glad I did! My life is changed because of him and I’m so grateful to him and his team! I’m 3 weeks post op and I couldn’t be happier that I finally am living a life pain free again! Thank you!

Dr. Cubbage and Karen Everingham were incredible they were with us every step of the way. I would definitely recommend them to anyone I meet. Thank you so much for your help, and my son is doing great thanks to you all.

I could not believe it I wanted to cry I felt great! All I could do is think about Dr. Cubbage and his team and their special skills that made me feel great again. It’s been two months since my surgery and I still feel great. Thank you Dr. Cubbage!

  • Dr. Cubbage is all for trying conservative approaches before even discussing surgery. He only recommends a surgical approach when all else has failed or there is so much damage that waiting could cause irreversible damage. I am very pleased with his work & glad I did it. (Microdiscectomy & Laminotomy). I also liked how his post op directions stress the importance of strict walking schedule. Thanks to Dr. Cubbage, Karen, Billing Dept. & the Pre-Op/Post-Op

The doc and his nurse Karen are awesome. He ordered tests, called late evening (same day) with results and I had surgery the next morning. During my recovery Karen contacted me many times. Thanks Dr. Cubbage and Karen for your swift care! I can’t wait to start playing golf again.

My recovery is going very well. The consultation I received while making the decision to have the surgery was clear and definitive. Drs. Cubbage and Moore took the time to explain why it was necessary, what I could expect in terms of improvement, and any risks involved. Very caring doctors & nurses!

  • After FOUR different opinions & 3 months of research, I decided on Dr. Cubbage for a lumbar artificial disk replacement. A huge part of that decision was thanks to his assistant Karen, who was amazing EVERY step of the way! She called me from home when her day was too busy and she stopped by to see me at the hospital the day of the surgery! The entire team is amazing and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU Karen, Dr. Cubbage, & team!

Despite having a busy practice, I’m almost always able to schedule an appt. within a few days of calling and receive a response to my email or phone questions often the same day.

  • I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Cubbage and all of his staff. My sister had went to him a month earlier and had the same cervical surgery as I had. He told me why I had to have surgery on my neck prior to my back. I did agree a few days later that my neck hurt much worse than my back. When my neck is recovered, I plan on going back to him for back surgery. I mentioned his name to other medical personnel & they had nothing to say but good things and plus other patients did too.

I have to say that each surgery I’ve had with these physicians have had excellent results. I was very pleased with my foot surgery and decided to see Dr. Cubbage for my back. Other surgeons I’ve seen regarding my back only gave me a 50/50 success rate. I have to say, the low back surgery with Dr. Cubbage

He is not quick to do surgery, only doing it if it is absolutely necessary, and each surgery has been an extreme success! His bedside mannerism is fabulous, he listens & cares. 5 stars x 3 from me!!!

  • If you are an existing patient of Dr. Cubbage then I’m sure you will agree with the following however if you are someone who is looking for a surgeon and team in the Houston area I hope you find the following useful.

    Dr. Cubbage just completed my fifth of a total of seven back surgeries. I first met with Dr. Cubbage and his team due to my first two surgeries completely failing causing numerous issues. What impressed me from our first discussion is that he actually took the time to listen to my concerns and treated me with care.

    Five surgeries later and that has still not changed and in fact the relationship has improved where I feel it is very much a team decision regarding when to have surgery and when to hold off and try alternatives.

    Speaking of the team, Dr. Cubbage is supported by a superb one. Dr. Tim Moore, Karen, and Saul are beyond wonderful and are there for me and I would think every patient.

    So if you are looking for an excellent surgeon, supported by an excellent team that will listen and help you through the difficult decision of surgery, and the road to recovery afterwards, I would always recommend Dr. Cubbage.

    Thank You Dr. C, Tim, Saul, and especially Karen.

I was off medications the following week. It’s been six weeks now, and I’m pain free. His team took great care and gave instructions that I still follow. Any questions I had after my surgery were quickly answered by Karen Everingham and Tim Moore.

  • How I felt before:

    I felt wide variety of pain in my lower back/ L5-S1/ hip area. It was uncomfortable to sit or stand for long periods of time. I had constant numbness in my legs and feet. The lower part of my abdomen/trunk area was weak. I was always fatigued.

    How I was treated in the process:

    I received a high level of care throughout the entire process, which was quite a long journey 8 years and counting. Dr. Cubbage and his team educated my family and myself on my condition, as well as wise advise that involved both physical therapy and pain management. They were extremely attentive to all of the concerns we had. Dr. Cubbage went above and beyond the call of what was asked of him. I felt that Dr. Cubbage truly cared about my wellbeing and always had my best interest at heart.

    After surgery:

    "Born Again" type feeling. What I found to be exhausting on a daily basis is now a piece of cake. I have improved feeling in my lower body. My endurance and strength gets better every day (4 months post- surgery). I can pick up and hold my children without pain, play a round of golf, run, and exercise like a normal, healthy individual.

  • I’ve seen Dr. Cubbage twice in the last 6 years. Wishing I would never have to see a doctor for orthopedic care EVER but should you ever find the need for this .. this is the place. I remember being so scared and frightened the first time we met and was told I needed surgery. Afterwards I was so relieved from the pain and respected the after care I received that it was no in doubt the first place I chose to go to for my most recent issues. They did such a wonderful job the first time it was so easy for me to make the decision of having to see him again. I would have never chosen any other place to go. I had trust and faith in him that I will continue to return for whatever my future needs may be. All the staff and nurses (hey saying a shout out to Karen!) are always so friendly and helpful. Not the typical visit of no name and only a paper id feeling of most visits these days. They really do care and respect your needs and feelings during the entire process. I am truly appreciative and hope I don’t have to see you for awhile!!! Lol. Much love and respect!

  • I highly recommend Dr. Cubbage if you have spinal problems. After reviewing my tests, he explained my options and I decided to have surgery. Dr. Cubbage did a laminectomy with discectomy on L3-L4 in late 2013. Now I feel wonderful compared to the pain and physical limitations I had before the surgery. I am exercising each day, which I could not do beforehand. Doctor surveys always ask about wait time and it is reasonable, 10-20 minutes. But truthfully, if necessary, I would wait hours to see Dr. Cubbage because he is worth the wait. I think he is a very good surgeon that thrives on improving quality of life for people. I appreciate his work and hope he will be available if I (or friends and family) have any spinal problems. Also, he has operated on my father and a friend. Both had good results. Thank you Dr. Cubbage and your staff for improving my life. Tara S.

  • In the era of full disclosure… I did have to wade through several phone numbers posted for the doctor to get to a live person. When will companies learn this is annoying? However, once I did, I talked to a young lady and she was quite helpful and worked with me on my concerns. About Dr Cubbage and his medical assistant. I felt they both took my condition very seriously as they went through a through examination to figure out what was wrong with me. So far, I’m very pleased with Dr. Cubbage and his staff. If that changes, I’ll post it… I am NOT politically correct.
