James St. Louis, DO - Laser Spine Surgeon

James St. Louis, DO

4728 N. Habana Ave Suite 202 Tampa , FL 33614

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
Republic.

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.”

Everyone I talked to made me fell very comfortable. The young man I talked to made me feel at ease with the possibility of having the laser surgery. He was very thorough with his explanations and I really appreciated that.

I was given an appointment is an expedient fashion, treated professionally and kindly on arrival, had a reasonable wait to be seen, was given a thorough evaluation of my low back problem by Dr. St. Louis and my options were explained in detail to my understanding. I highly recommend Dr, St. Louis and his staff !

Polite, caring, and to the point. Very confident in his abilities. I have suffered from pain for a long time now. I have surgery soon and will update my review. 19 November 2018 addition. I'm a week after discectomy/laminectomy and I honestly could tell a difference the day of surgery. I obviously had surgical pain but the sciatica and stiffness in the back was relieved. 2 days after surgery I had soreness in the backs of both legs which is normal. Take your walks and don't over do it. Overall Dr St Louis did a great job. Looking forward to having him look at my cervical issues.
