Louisiana Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine was established by Ronald D. Sylvest, M.D. in 1989 and has been providing excellent care to the Greater Baton Rouge area since that time. We are committed to providing quality patient care in a timely and friendly manner. Our staff is prepared to assist you to ensure a positive and comfortable experience. We believe strongly in quality patient care while respecting the patient's busy schedule. Our practice is based on one-on-one physician/patient contact as we do not employ physician's assistants to assist in patient care.
