About Me

David E. Hirsch, MD, MBA, is a pain medicine doctor who works with patients at both WK Pierremont Health Center and WK Bossier Health Center. He diagnoses and treats emergency and long-term pain problems to get patients back on their feet and restore their quality of life. Patients benefit from services offered in his clinic right when they need it, without extra travel and wait times. 

Born in Houston, Texas, Dr. Hirsch and his family moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 2000. He graduated from Episcopal High School in Baton Rouge in 2003 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Tulane University in New Orleans in 2007. Dr. Hirsch earned his medical degree from LSU Health Sciences Center –Shreveport School of Medicine in 2011. He returned to New Orleans for his residency in anesthesiology at Tulane Medical Center. During his residency, Dr. Hirsch received a scholarship to Tulane’s professional MBA program at the Freeman School of Business. He completed both his residency and Master’s in Business Administration in 2015.

During his residency, Dr. Hirsch was exposed to chronic pain in many different settings, which fostered his interest in pain management. While in New Orleans, he provided pain management for the Southeast Louisiana Veterans Administration, as well as  the Tulane and Ochsner health systems. Dr. Hirsch received an offer to continue his medical training with a fellowship in pain medicine at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. His fellowship provided him with many tools  for chronic pain management.

Dr. Hirsch believes in a multimodal approach to pain management, specifically interventional and non-interventional treatment modalities. He cares for conditions such as low back pain, neck pain, headaches, neuropathies, spinal stenosis, sciatica, chronic regional pain syndrome, phantom limb pain and many others. The treatments he offers include cervical, thoracic, caudal and lumbar epidural steroid injections; facet injections; medial branch blocks; radiofrequency ablation; sacroiliac joint injections; kyphoplasty; intrathecal pump implants; occipital nerve blocks; shoulder, knee and hip intra-articular injections; spinal cord stimulator trial and implants; nerve blocks including celiac, stellate, hypogastric plexus and many others; sympathetic blocks and Botox® injections for migraines, spasticity and cervical dystonia.

Following his wide exposure to chronic pain management, Dr. Hirsch understands the toll chronic pain takes on patients and their families. He understands how important it is to help his patients regain quality of life and he individualizes treatment for each patient. 

Dr. Hirsch and his family live in Shreveport. He enjoys golf, spending time with his wife and son, and LSU football.
