Dr. Matthew S. Mosura
Dr. Mosura originally moved to Louisiana in 1994 from Pennsylvania. He attended Centenary College of Louisiana and received his Bachelor of Science with Honors in Biology. He then attended medical school at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport where he received his Doctor of Medicine degree. Throughout medical school, Dr. Mosura's interest grew in anesthesiology and pain management which led him to a residency training in Anesthesiology at the University of Texas in Houston. During his residency, he trained in all aspects of anesthesiology including cardiothoracic, pediatrics, orthopedics, critical care, regional anesthesia, and pain management. He was named Outstanding Junior Resident and was then promoted to Chief Resident during his final year of training at which point he oversaw approximately 60 other junior residents.
Upon completion of his residency he then was chosen to attend a fellowship in Pain Management at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston Texas. During his fellowship he treated patients with various painful conditions from both cancer and non-cancer causes. His primary focus was on interventional techniques to help treat pain including nerve blocks, spine injections, joint injections, spinal cord stimulators, implantable pain pumps, and needle procedures to fix fractured back bones including vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty.
Upon completion of his fellowship he decided to move back to Shreveport-Bossier City with his family and join River Cities Intervention Pain Specialists and Willis-Knighton Hospital System. Dr. Mosura is Board certified in both Anesthesiology and Pain Management.
Dr. Mosura also has research interests and currently works along side Dr. Randy Brewer as subinvestigator in multiple research studies looking at exciting new medications and therapies for treating pain in the near future.
