J. Michael Burdine, MD

Interventional Pain Management Physician

From the Doctor

I founded The Spine Diagnostic & Treatment Center in 2002, and within three years we grew to become the largest pain relief center in Louisiana. Over the years, I’ve helped bring new pain relief technologies to our area, which includes performing the first percutaneous discectomies and radiofrequency facet neurotomies.

It’s not everyone who can say they enjoy doing what they do for a living, but I certainly can. As a youth, I always knew I would one day go into medicine. My great-grandfather was a family doctor and my grandfather was a pharmacist, so I’ve been around medicine my entire life.

After medical school, I went on to specialize in interventional pain medicine, and today I am able to offer you extensive advanced training and experience. This includes my fellowship training and board certification in anesthesiology and fellowship trained in pain management.

My goal is to resolve your pain problem rather than just cover it up. Using advanced nonsurgical treatments, I’ll do everything I can to get you out of pain fast and get you back to your active lifestyle.
