Tampa, FL (PRWEB) September 6, 2008
Chief spine surgeon Dr. James St. Louis of the Laser Spine Institute in Tampa, Florida was named 2008 Physician of the Year for orthopedic surgery by the American Association of Physician Specialists. He received this award after a committee of orthopedic surgeons evaluated his significant contribution to his specialty.
Dr. St. Louis was honored as 2008 Physician of the Year during the President's Dinner of the House of Delegates and Annual Scientific Meeting held at the Crowne Plaza Resort in Hilton Head, South Carolina in June. Dr. St. Louis was selected to receive this prestigious award by the American Association of Physician Specialists, Inc. (AAPS) in the spring. In addition to 2008, the association selected Dr. St. Louis as a recipient of this prominent award in 2005. Having the honor to receive this award twice is not only extraordinary, but also unlikely.
As the founder of Laser Spine Institute (LSI), Dr. St. Louis has instituted a highly selective and comprehensive minimally invasive approach to spine surgery. LSI offers an outpatient surgical solution for patients suffering from problematical spine conditions. The results are minimal down time and the ability to resume activities and normal lifestyle with significantly less complications.
Dr. St. Louis has treated hundreds of patients from around the globe and, as news of his success spreads, thousands of people worldwide will have the opportunity to find the relief they deserve at LSI in Tampa, FL or Scottsdale, AZ. According to a member of the board of governors, "He has taken spine surgery to a new level and is at least five years ahead of those in the field."
Dr. St. Louis has demonstrated a true commitment to excellence in his profession as an orthopedic surgeon and as a mentor and trainer to others who wish to join him as an expert in minimally invasive spine procedures. As LSI Chief Executive Officer Bill Horne reflects, "Being a former patient of Dr. St. Louis myself, I owe him all of the gratitude for giving me my life back and making me pain free. As his business partner, I share the pleasure of showcasing his talents to hundreds of patients every month that are suffering from similar back and neck pain. On behalf of the Laser Spine Institute, I am honored to announce that Dr. James St. Louis has been recognized as the 2008 Physician of the Year by the American Association of Physician Specialists."
