ABOUT NEW ORLEANS AREA NEUROSURGEON JOHN STECK

Specialties:  Herniated discs requiring surgery, Spinal stenosis

Dr. Steck prefers a conservative approach to managing the spine, emphasizing smaller and less invasive procedures when possible.

“We do full spine care – medical management, surgical management,” he says. “However, we try to treat patients conservatively when possible. We are constantly working to try to improve our technique, manage patients, shorten hospital stays and provide faster recovery. It’s a constant evolution.” – John Steck, M.D.

Dr. Steck says that the Spine Team, which consists of Culicchia Clinic neurologists and pain management specialists, have been successful in utilizing specific injections of pain-relieving medications that cure many people of their pain syndromes and prevent the need for surgery.

As one of the largest neurological and neurosurgical practices in the New Orleans Gulf South region, Culicchia Neurological Clinic focuses specifically on Neurocare to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome.
