The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is committed to patient care, education, and research.  We are dedicated to our patient population throughout the State of Louisiana and ARK-LA-TEX region and strive to educate our Orthopaedic Residents and instill life-long learning in the practice of Orthopaedic Surgery.

   

Biomechanics is especially important in Orthopaedic Surgery, a specialty that requires precision to treat injuries relating to bones, joints, tendons, muscles and other aspects of the body’s musculoskeletal system.  LSU Health Shreveport faculty physicians, medical students, residents and researchers are teaming up in the Biomechanics Laboratory to assist Orthopaedic surgeons in the development and evaluation of surgical approaches.
