Northshore neurosurgeon, Dr. Justin L. Owen knew he wanted to be a doctor since he was a young boy growing up in Arkansas. He went on to study at Hendrix College, known for its strong medical school acceptance rate. He later went to medical school at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences before heading down to New Orleans for seven years of training at the LSU Health Sciences Center.
Dr. Owen describes himself as a perfectionist. “I want great outcomes for each of my patients just as I would for my own family. I work hard to try and make that happen in every aspect of my practice, whether it’s in the operating room during surgery, in the clinic, when considering surgery, or even through trying to help a patient avoid surgery.”
Dr. Owen treats patients with brain and spine conditions including brain and spine tumors, chronic neck and back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, compression fractures, and traumatic injuries.
Other than surgery, Dr. Owen is a lifelong musician and lifelong martial artist. He is also a former and current professional paintball player.
