Paul V. Birinyi, M.D., F.A.A.N.S.

Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Neurosurgeon

Originally hailing from the suburbs of Dallas, Texas, Dr. Birinyi completed his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Science degrees in cellular and molecular neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University Baltimore, Maryland. While there, he pursued his interests in the genetics of alcohol and drug abuse at the National Institute on Drug Abuse and in restless legs syndrome at The Johns Hopkins Center for Restless Legs Syndrome.

After returning home from Baltimore, Dr. Birinyi graduated from the University of Texas-Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, Texas, where he engaged extensively in anatomical education. In residency at Saint Louis University, his interests included resident education and minimally invasive spinal surgery. He continued his interest in minimally invasive surgical techniques with a spine fellowship with Dr. Kevin Foley and the Semmes-Murphey Clinic in Memphis, Tennessee.

Dr. Birinyi currently resides in Alexandria, Louisiana where he enjoys spending time in the community, being with his wife and daughters, and partaking in Louisiana’s vast outdoorsman culture.

  • What Our Patients Say icon-arrow-white.png

    Prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Birinyi, I had been to many doctors and specialists, had prior surgeries, and had many injections due to deteriorating vertebral structures. The pain was increasing year by year. At my first appointment, he proposed a comprehensive surgical intervention and explained in detail what to expect. Dr. Birinyi fused my thoracic and lumbar spine, my scoliosis was straightened and other structural problems were solved during one surgery. Within three months of the surgery, I was back to walking for exercise. Dr. Birinyi and his staff treated me with skill, kindness, and courtesy. I would highly recommend Dr. Birinyi.
