Dr. Carroll McLeod, originally from Hattiesburg, lives in Jackson, Mississippi. The son of a physician, Dr. McLeod received his medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in 1988. Following an internship in Internal Medicine at Oschner Foundation Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana, he completed a residency in anesthesia at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. Dr. McLeod then completed a pain fellowship, where he trained at the University of Texas Health Science Center in Galveston, Texas, as well as at M.D. Anderson Medical Center in Houston, Texas. He is board certified by the American Board of Anesthesiology.
In 1992, Dr. McLeod, joined Jackson Anesthesia Associates as an anesthesiologist and began his pain management practice in a part-time setting. Very soon afterwards, his pain management practice grew to the point where it was a full-time job; therefore Jackson Anesthesia Pain Center was built. Dr. McLeod treats all types of chronic pain, including cancer pain, spine-related low back and neck pain, as well as complex regional pain syndrome. He specializes in spinal cord stimulation and intrathecal pain pump implantation/therapy, including participating in research and studies for future technological advances for these devices. Dr. McLeod was also the first physician in Mississippi to offer a sphenopalatine ganglion block using a cutting-edge, minimally invasive SphenoCath device to help patients with migraines, headaches, and/or trigeminal pain. Dr. McLeod uses a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to treating his patients for pain management which includes, but is not limited to, interventional procedures, medications, physical therapy, and behavioral cognitive techniques.
Dr. McLeod is married to Lorie, and together they have one son, Carey. He is an avid hunter and enjoys playing golf, traveling, and Ole Miss sports.
