Though surgery is occasionally needed, he is passionate about accurately diagnosing the source of patients’ spine discomfort and managing it conservatively. He is expertly trained to perform guided epidural steroid injections, diagnostic and therapeutic selective nerve root blocks, medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablations, vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty, discography, and spinal cord stimulator lead placement in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine. He also performs sacroiliac joint blocks and radiofrequency ablation, as well as peripheral joint injections.
Dr. Baronne joins the LOS team after completing his fellowship under Dr. Derek Buck at the Advanced Spine and Pain Center in Little Rock, Arkansas. Prior to his fellowship, Dr. Baronne completed his residency at Louisiana State University in Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. During his residency, he managed inpatient rehabilitation for spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, strokes, neurologic conditions, amputations, joint replacements, deconditioning, performed nerve conduction studies/EMG and interventional spine procedures. Dr. Baronne received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine and graduated Cum Laude from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas with a Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience.
