I had a front fusion OF 2 vertebrae in my neck, BY ANOTHER SURGEON, things were fine for about 3 months then I started having level 9 pain….that surgeon could not find anything wrong…..and each appt was 6 weeks apart…I started seeking a 2nd and 3rd opinion. Dr. McCarthy found a course of action and did a C3 thru C6 fusion on the back side…It has been almost 5 months since the surgery and I feel great! I really was looking for a miracle and he delivered it! He even did a video conference with my insurance provider when they denied me at 1st…Dr McCarthy got it approved. THE ENTIRE STAFF AND PA’S ARE SUPER ALSO. Thank you Dr. McCarthy!!! Thank you Meegan! Thank you Kim!

Dr. Harrod and his staff are excellent!! I had back pain for years and it was to the point of having a fusion from L3 to S1. Dr. Harrod did the surgery and my back feels so much better. I still have pain but not like I had before the surgery. His support staff and office staff are also great. When I call or visit the office, they make sure their patients are taken care of in a timely manner. I would recommend Dr. Harrod to anyone needing answers about back problems, or needing treatment. In my opinion, The Spine Center and Dr. Harrod are the best in Baton Rouge.

Dr. Neuman teamed up with Dr. Harrod to develop a plan that would give me options to choose from. Both are great at explaining things in layman’s terms. Love these guys and their staff.

I have a cervical spine fracture, and he has answered all of my questions and has always fit me in to his schedule if I’ve had any concerns. Not to mention he’s extremely knowledgeable and personable. He and all of his staff are just outstanding.”

“I feel fortunate to have Dr. McCarthy as my doctor. He is focused, knowledgable, skilled, confident and respectful. After two cortisone injections and nerve medication that did not last I chose to have ACDF surgery. This was a process of learning and accepting what was and what could be with medical technology. The entire team, especially Christina Landry, helped me through this last year’s journey with their expertise and capable guidance. They have proved themselves to be the very best when it comes to spinal care. Thank you all.”

“Dr. McCarthy is a wonderful physician. He fixed my many years of back pain through a minimally invasive procedure that no other surgeon in the area is offering. It has been over 2 years and I still have no pain. Would recommend him or his awesome staff to any of my family or friends.”

Patient, 3 years ago,

“Doctor McCarthy is a wonderful physician. He spent a lot of time listening to my concerns and discussed my symptoms and treatments prior. I have had back pain for many years and have seen many doctors. None of them have relieved my symptoms or seemed to even care. Dr. McCarthy diagnosed the problem right away and alleviated my pain through a minimally invasive procedure that no one else in the area does. It has been 2 years now and I still have no pain. He and his wonderful staff saved my life!”

Betsy, 3 years ago,

Meda-Kay, 4 years ago, Yelp

Dr. Harrod is amazing. I feel confident, beyond a shadow of a doubt that this is his passion! He has great bed side manners, empathy and the best of what he does! This is not only coming from myself. While I was in the waiting room a young lady proceeded to tell me that Dr. Harrod was on his family vacation out of state when she was in a horrific car accident and that he immediately flew in to reconstruct her entire spine. I had tears of joy! We need more dedicated Dr.s like himself. God Bless!!

Jamie P., 4 years ago
