  • All patients, visitors, and employees are screened before entering the clinic and everyone entering the clinic must be wearing a mask
  • Patients must come alone to their appointment unless assistance to/from the appointment is needed.
  • Only ONE person can accompany the patient, if, needed, and that person must also wear a mask.
  • Patients should take their temperature before leaving home and if 100 degrees or greater must cancel and reschedule
  • Social distancing should be maintained in our Reception Area. If unable to do so, patients can wait in the exterior lobby or outside in their car.
  • A good telephone number must be provided for the Front/Back Desks to be able to call and let you know when to present to the Front Desk.

About Us

Dedicated To The Treatment of Spinal Disorders.

About Us

We specialize in treating both simple and complex neck and back problems, and our clinical team is dedicated to finding the cause of discomfort and pain for each patient. We believe that treating symptoms alone is not a comprehensive long-term solution. Using accurate and thorough diagnostic tools aids our clinicians in successfully treating the majority of our patients with conservative treatment modalities and in evaluating and identifying those patients who truly need and should benefit from surgery.

Meet Our Team

The Spine Institute of Louisiana physicians recognize that medicine is a service profession and as such believe that the health and healing of patients must come first.  We feel that each and every patient should be treated in a respectful and compassionate manner as we strive to seek solutions that will improve the quality of our patients' lives.  Our philosophy is to provide quality patient care using innovative and minimally invasive technologies in a manner that offers convenience, and a continuum of care that routinely sets the mark higher than the accepted standard of care for the area.
