Patient Stories

“Every day, I feel like I’m waking up to a miracle. I thank my doctors in my prayers for performing this life-changing deep brain stimulation surgery! Anytime I see someone who has hand tremors, I want to tell them all about DBS and how Dr. Paul Waguespack and Dr. Gerald Calegan at The NeuroMedical Center gave me my life back!”

Cathy Guilbeau
Plaquemine, LA

“Dr. Luke A. Corsten and Dr. Kelly J. Scrantz have both performed major spinal (cervical and lumbar) surgeries for me. I moved to New Mexico and they are still my neurosurgeons of choice. I drove back to Baton Rouge last June for a follow-up evaluation by Dr. Corsten and pain management specialist, Dr. Jyoti Pham, for some other issues. I have recommended all my NeuroMedical Center doctors to at least twenty family members and friends in New Mexico, Arkansas, Texas, and Louisiana. No matter how many miles I have to travel, The NeuroMedical Center will always be my first choice for expert spine & neurological care.”
