Jim Jeffries, D.O., FAOCA


Profile Overview

Whether reviewing a patient’s health history or providing him or her with that extra ounce of insight into a surgical procedure, Dr. Jim Jeffries know how beneficial educating those he treats can be. And it’s why he invests so much time sharing his knowledge. Yet, his instinct for knowing what questions his patients may want the answers to didn’t come overnight. In fact, his strong track record of success is the direct result of the nearly two decades he’s spent delivering exceptional patient care.

Before joining Laser Spine Institute, Dr. Jeffries held top posts as Director of Anesthesia at Normandy Community Hospital and Medical Director at Effingham Ambulatory Surgery Center. He also spent more than a decade as a Staff Anesthesiologist for several surgery centers in and around St. Louis.

In his free time, Dr. Jeffries plays both piano and guitar. He also values the time he spends taking in the beauty of the great outdoors. And when not helping patients, you can likely find him doing just that — appreciating nature in all its splendor as he admires the dozen or so deer that frequently visit his backyard.
