Welcome to the Department of Orthopaedics!  Here at Tulane University School of Medicine, we have a dual role of education and service.  Patient care is provided by our outstanding Faculty and Resident Staff.  Our faculty has experts to care for all kinds of orthopaedic problems for all patients at any age, whether it is a musculoskeletal injury or a painful condition, such as arthritis. 

Patients are seen at Tulane Medical Center, the Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine, Tulane-Lakeside Hospital, and our new clinic at Plaquemines Medical Center.  We also have an office in Covington, LA, and satellite locations in Slidell, LA and Gulport, MS.  Our doctors care for patients at University Hospital and the V.A. Clinics.

Our educational mission is to teach our residents, fellows, and medical students in all aspects of the musculoskeletal system.  We have a fully accredited 5 year Orthopaedic Residency, where our doctors teach Tulane University Medical Students and Sports Medicine Fellows; while, in addition, our doctors teach other doctors all over the world where they make presentations of their orthopaedic experiences at regional, national, and international orthopaedic meetings.

As part of our mission, we conduct clinical and basic research to advance the knowledge of the musculoskeletal system.  Our results are published in a wide range of medical journals.

Whether you are a perspective patient, a medical student, or anyone else, we hope you find the information that you are looking for on our Web Site.  Please contact us if you need any further assistance.
