Erik Davis, MD, is an experienced, board-certified pain management physician at Louisiana Pain Specialists, with locations in Kenner, Metairie, Laplace, Baton Rouge, Marrero, and New Orleans, Louisiana. He is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation and fellowship-trained in pain management.


After training outside of New Orleans for nearly a decade, Dr. Davis returned to his hometown of New Orleans to join the exceptional team at Louisiana Pain Specialists. He is fascinated by the challenge of medicine, complexity of the human body, and ability to work with his hands through innovative procedures. He’s a lifelong learner in the field of pain management.


As an athlete who played football and wrestled at Brother Martin High School in the New Orleans area, Dr. Davis was drawn to the medical profession. His injuries required four knee surgeries with two pins placed in his ankle, and he appreciated the doctor who helped him get back out on the field and mat.


Dr. Davis earned his medical degree from Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, after completing his undergraduate studies at Xavier University in New Orleans, Louisiana. He went on to complete a year of surgical internship training at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, followed by a residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. 


He finished his medical training with an interventional spine and sports medicine fellowship at Alabama Orthopedic Spine and Sports Medicine Associates in Birmingham. Prior to joining Louisiana Pain Specialists, he worked at the National Spine & Pain Centers in Fairfax, Virginia.


Dr. Davis has mastered advanced procedures like cervical, thoracic, and lumbar epidurals, facet joint treatments, medial branch blocks, and radiofrequency ablation, as well as intradiscal injections, sympathetic blocks, kyphoplasty, spinal cord stimulation, and ultrasound-guided joint injections for pain relief.


Like the doctor who helped him in his youth, Dr. Davis passionately restores musculoskeletal function in people of all ages. He discovers the source of pain quickly and immediately treats it in the least invasive way possible.


Dr. Davis warmly welcomes his patients to Louisiana Pain Specialists.
