Dr. Waguespack says...

I was born and raised in New Orleans, and I am proud to be a trusted resource for patients with pain and disability due to degeneration, trauma, deformity, infection, or cancer of the spine.

 

My approach incorporates conservative treatments first, but if surgery is necessary, I specialize in minimally invasive procedures. 

 

I am a board certified orthopedic surgeon and member of the North American Spine Society and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
