The Department of Surgery at Louisiana State University Health Shreveport has established itself over decades as a premier university-based training program for general surgeons and those preparing for a future in surgical subspecialties. Ochsner LSU Health Shreveport adjoins our medical school and allows our surgical residents to experience and treat a vast array of surgical pathology.
Our Level I Trauma Center and Regional Burn Center have over 2500 patient encounters per year. Surgical oncology, cardiothoracic, and vascular surgery are tertiary referral disciplines and our general surgery residents who rotate on these services are able to gain great experience in open, minimally invasive, and catheter-based technologies. Rotations at the Overton Brooks Veterans Administration Medical Center and Ochsner LSU Health Monroe help further the general surgery exposure. Transplantation, hepatobiliary, and pediatric surgical services are a part of our training program in addition to advanced abdominal and thoracic endoscopic and robotic surgery.
The Department of Surgery is committed to the education and training of talented surgical clinicians, incorporating skills, knowledge, and competencies that are essential to providing the highest standard of care. We train surgical residents to become the future leaders of academic surgery.
