James St. Louis, D.O., performs minimally invasive laser spine procedures at Physician Partner of America’s Tampa location. He is board certified in Orthopedic Surgery by the American Board of Physician Specialists, and was the surgical founder of Laser Spine Institute in Tampa.

Throughout his career, Dr. St. Louis has helped thousands of patients
ease their back and neck pain through minimally invasive
techniques. The combination of tiny instruments and a specialized
laser allows for precision and faster healing than traditional
open-back surgery.

“Laser surgery allows patients to return to their activities within days
or weeks instead of months, as is the case with open surgery – and
that is in the best interest of patients,” says Dr. St. Louis. “It’s better for
the overall health of the patient.”

A commissioned officer in the United States Army, Dr. St. Louis
earned his Bachelors of Science and Masters of Science from the
University of Wisconsin – La Crosse. He received his medical degree
from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences, and
completed his surgical training in the military and at Kennedy
Medical Center in Cherry Hill, N.J.

He has also studied stem cell therapy at leading hospitals in the
Ukraine, and participated in studies of laser science in the Czech

In addition to Laser Spine Institute, Dr. St Louis is also the founder of
Alabama Bone & Joint Center and Pensacola Bone & Joint Center,
and served as medical director of HealthSouth in Pensacola, Fla.

Dr. St. Louis is a member of many medical organizations including the American Osteopathic Association, American Osteopathic Academy of Orthopedics, American Medical Association and American Association of Physician Specialists.

He believes in making the patient a partner in the decision-making process.

“As a surgeon and physician, it is important to listen closely to the patient and completely understand their reason for their appointment,” he says. “Once you have a complete history then you evaluate the appropriate studies with the patient. When these steps are completed you can then provide the best surgical care for that patient.”

Although I had never met Dr. James Saint-Louis before, and had no idea that he would be the surgeon performing my elected lumbar surgery on Dec. 9, 2010, I could not be happier with the outcome. Dr. Saint-Louis was very professional and answered all my questions. When the scheduled surgeon got behind on theday my surgery was scheduled, Dr. Saint-Louis volunteered to do my surgery. I couldn't be more satisfied with the outcome of my lumbar surgery performed by Dr. James Saint-Louis and highly recommend him to anyone in need of his expertise. Thanks so much, Dr. St. Louis. I hope someday you will return to Missouri to open an LSI facility.
