Dr. Crosby Louisiana Pain Specialists

Dr. John Crosby has been a physician for over 25 years.

He began his career as an anesthesiologist in Northwest Louisiana. However, the desire to treat patients on a more personal level lead him to pursue a career as a pain management physician.

Dr. Crosby has held several leadership positions while serving as an anesthesiologist in Shreveport including serving on the Board of Directors of Christus Health Northwest Louisiana. He was also chosen as one of Shreveport/Bossier City’s Top Doctors by the Shreveport Bossier Magazine multiple times.

Dr. Crosby believes pain affects us in so many ways: chronic suffering, withdrawing from society, and even withdrawing from family. Patients can feel very isolated. It is his desire to help them reach a point where being around others is a joy and not something to avoid. Dr. Crosby grew up in this area and has family deeply rooted in Cajun heritage. He has a sincere love for the culture and the people of South Louisiana.

He completed his interventional pain fellowship at Texas Tech University under Dr. Miles Day, an international lecturer and instructor, and Dr. Gabor Racz, a world-renowned pioneer in the field of interventional pain and charter member of both the World Institute of Pain and the National Pain Foundation.

Dr. Crosby offers multiple methods of controlling pain that include ultrasound-guided and fluoroscopically guided procedures, peripheral nerve ablation and the latest in spinal cord neuromodulation/surgical techniques.

Louisiana Pain Specialists is built upon three basic tenets of practice: an accurate working diagnosis, a balanced approach of appropriate medications as well as interventions aimed at improving quality of life, and utilizing treatments that are substantiated with results.
