About

Bio

Physician and Physical Therapist practicing in Louisiana. I have a special interest in Regenerative Medicine (Prolotherapy and PRP-Platelet Rich Plasma and Stem cells). Board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and Interventional Pain Management.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
