Dr. James A Tiesi has the following 2 specialties
- Vascular Surgery
Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.
- Neurological Surgery
A neurological surgeon is a physician who surgically treats disorders of the nervous system, which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
In addition to treating trauma of the head and spine, these doctors also treat disorders like epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
Neurological surgeons can perform surgical procedures on the brain, such as stereotactic surgery, microsurgery, endoscopic surgery, stereotactic radiosurgery, and endovascular image guided methods.

Doc spent all of 2min looking at my MRI results and told me I had a little abnormality in my spine and it can be fixed with surgery. I asked about physical therapy or injections and he said they don't help that surgery is the only thing that helps on- going persistent pain. After I stated I wanted to try everything before surgery he seemed to get frustrated with me and finished the appointment abruptly with scripts to both. He was extremely short, rude, and had no bedside manner what so ever, I wouldn't let this guy operate on me to save my life!!
After two MRI's, a round of disk injections, P/T and lots of ibuprophen my sciatic pain level reached a level 10. I met with Dr. Tiesi and the day before Thanksgiving 2017 I had a left side L-5 disk decompression, hemi-laminectomy and foraminotomy. In 4 days I no longer needed the pain meds, and was released to drive 10 days post surgery. It is now 30 days post surgery and I have less back pain than I have had in 20 years. I am very, very grateful for Dr. Tiesi and his surgical skill.
He told me exactly what to do and who to see for treatment. He is not a pill pusher nor a cutter and that I appreciated. Each time I had an appointment, he had my xrays right there and showed me the problem area of a pinched nerve. Surgery may be in my future and I would consult with him if and when needed.
