COVINGTON, LOUISIANA – AVALA is pleased to announce the expansion of its physician partnerships with the addition of AVALA Spine, formerly DISC of Louisiana. DISC of Louisiana has long seen the benefit of its evolution to AVALA Spine, helping to bridge the gap from clinical to surgical care with AVALA. Beginning September 1, 2023, DISC of Louisiana will do business as AVALA Spine.
DISC of Louisiana Spine Physicians, Dr. Samer Shamieh, Dr. Jeremy James, Dr. Justin Owen, and Dr. Sean Michael Rider have partnered with AVALA since the hospital came under new ownership in 2017 for first-class surgical, imaging, and physical therapy care.
“The AVALA Brand works to put the doctor-patient relationship at the heart of medicine. This affiliation allows us to consolidate our branding, reduce administrative burden and costs while improving efficiency and quality of care. Every day, as physicians, we ask ourselves, “How would I treat my momma”? Partnering with AVALA will ensure that our patients Trust Healthcare Again,” said Dr. K. Samer Shamieh, Chief Medical Officer of AVALA.
AVALA Spine is locally owned and specializes in conservative treatments, including minimally invasive spine surgery treating back, neck, leg, and arm pain. AVALA Spine is accepting new patients!
