The Spine Institute of Louisiana Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve current spine treatments and develop new ones through innovative research.

The Foundation is the only comprehensive research institute in the region dedicated exclusively to diseases of the spine. Ours is a two part approach. First, we conduct clinical trials which are overseen by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These studies have provided hundreds of patients in the Ark-La-Tex area with treatment options not normally available to the general public. Second, we initiate our own research studies based on the challenges local physicians face in treating patients. We collaborate with colleagues across the country to tackle these problems. The Foundation has been recognized both nationally and internationally for our work in clinical trials and independent research.

Through independent donations and monies obtained through grants and awards, the Foundation is able to continue its dedication to spine research; which includes alternatives to spinal fusion, spine deformities like scoliosis, and other pharmaceutical and biologic treatment alternatives.
