New Orleans Spine Surgeons

DISC of Louisiana’s team of spine surgeons are Louisiana natives. They pride themselves on effectively applying the latest medical techniques. However, they understand it’s the loving and kindhearted southern bedside manner for which they’re known.  Hear first-hand accounts from DISC of Louisiana’s patients in the Testimonial Section.

Nonsurgical Treatment First

Every member of the DISC of Louisiana Team knows that counseling and education are the cornerstone of our relationships with our patients.  The DISC philosophy emphasizes nonsurgical treatment options be exhausted before spine surgery. Feedback from patients through satisfaction and clinical scales guide our direction. Critical feedback from our patients gives us the ability to adjust the course of treatment to meet their specific needs.

The main goal of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery is to improve the overall quality of life and the future of patients. All patients with spinal problems deserve an opportunity to live an active, normal life. We exist to serve adults with scoliosis, spinal deformities, and other complex spine diseases in a patient and family centered, multidisciplinary center.

Schedule Your Consultation

Are you concerned you may need back surgery or neck surgery? For those back and neck pain sufferers who have exhausted nonsurgical treatment options, spine surgery may be the fastest way back to activity. Getting a 2nd opinion from Dr. Shamieh or Dr. James will ensure that you are getting the right surgery for your specific spinal disease.

Ask The Doctor if a minimally invasive spinal procedure may be right for you. Call (985)400-5778 today to schedule your MRI evaluation at one of DISC of Louisiana’s convenient locations throughout the Greater New Orleans area.
