A native of Texas, Dr. Stanley completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas, Austin, before moving onto the University of Texas Southwestern Medical to earn his medical degree. He completed his internship in General Surgery as well as a residency in Orthopaedic Surgery at the University of Oklahoma, and some of his rotations including working with the Sooner athletics program. Following that, Dr. Stanley completed a fellowship in Spine Surgery at Brown University.

Most notably, Dr. Stanley was a collaborator for a research study on the intake of dioxins and other compounds in the U.S. food supply, which was published in Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health.

Dr. Stanley is a consummate family man, who enjoys spending quality time with his wife and four children. Despite being an alumnus of both University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas Austin, he is a dedicated Longhorns fan.

“We have a lot of new technology that allows for us to treat spine problems with less invasive methods. So, rather than traditional spine surgery, which involves large incisions, significant blood loss, and often times lengthy hospital stays, now we can do the same procedures through very small incisions and get them out of the hospital the same day and back to work and back to doing what they want to do in just a few weeks, instead of a few months.” – Dr. Stanley
