My Grandmother was in so much pain for so long. Her quality of life was steadily declining for the past 4 years. She had multiple epidural injections into her back with some relief but they quickly wore off. She was then referred to Dr. Jeremy James. She felt comfortable talking with him and his PA about her concerns and they were very knowledgeable. The surgery day came and went and she is completely pain free for the first time in 4 years! Thank you so much Dr. James and the DISC of Louisiana!

I've been holding out for a while bc I was always scared to have surgery. First appointment he told me what was wrong and my option. I careful considered them all. Then one day the pain got worse and I literally couldn't deal. He made me feel comfortable about what procedure I would have done and I felt safe. His team is amazing as well. I would so recommend him to anyone. DR. JEREMY, thank you for giving me my life back. Went in surgery with pain and came out pain free and have been ever since!

I highly recommend Dr. James. After suffering with a herniated disk for about a year, Dr. James correctly diagnosed the problem and gave me treatment options. I choose surgery. Now, only two months later I am completely pain free and able to resume my normal life style. This has been a good experience all over, and I would go back to Dr. James if needed (although I hope not :-)).

My first visits with Dr. James was very informative. Dr. James is very direct, specific, answers all questions fully, and makes excellent eye contact when speaking. He does not rush you through your appointment. I was told by hospital staff when I checked in for my ALIF procedure, that I had one of the very best orthopedic/spine surgeons in the business. Dr. James is very confident and extensive in his surgical experience, which is why I was personally referred to him. He is excellent!

Dr. James is down-to-earth and friendly. He is very competent. He explained everything to me in a way I could understand it and left it to me to make my decision to have surgery (he wasn't pushy in the least.) For me, it was a no-brainer, because I could no longer walk or go to work. The operation was nothing short of a miracle. As soon as I woke up from the operation, I knew it was a success. I was up and walking within hours of surgery. My quality of life is 100% better.

All of my friends will see what I post, but I wish it could be more people. Dr. Jeremy James operated on me for two areas of acute stenosis and a ruptured disc with pain and burning down my right thigh and leg. Well, after 3 1/2 years of accommodating (7 back braces of varying types, a pick up stick grabber to get things off the floor, living on a heating pad and/or cold compress), I am well on my way to normalcy. Staff is exceptional. 5 Stars

I was completely unaware of my problem. Weakness in legs and at times no feeling in legs. At initial appointment dr. James read my MRI and was totally aware of my problem and assured me that he can fix it. He was confident and explained in detail what needed to be done. After surgery I had tremendous relief and could not have been more pleased. On follow up visit He explained any limitations I may have and thankfully they were minimal. I would highly recommend Dr. James for both his knowledge an
