Dr. Vinod Dasa, MD is a board certified orthopedic surgeon, Vice Chair of Academic affairs, Irvin Cahen endowed chair of orthopedic research at LSU Health and Ochnser Medical Center. He is currently licensed to practice medicine in Louisiana and New York. He is affiliated with Ochsner Medical Center - Kenner, University Medical Center New Orleans, and Ochsner Medical Center, and many other regional facilities.
He is considered one of the pioneers in enhanced recovery protocols after surgeries by utilizing an ecosystem of innovations like iovera to perform opioid sparing/free surgery. He has published numerous research publications in peer reviewed journals ranging from novel techniques to health disparities and outcomes. He has presented at international meetings describing emerging trends and novel approaches to health care.
We believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques--surgery is just one treatment option. We combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide our patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.
I work to develop a partnership with my patients. On my part, this begins with listening. And one of the most important things I need to know is how the physical problem affects this patient's life. We develop a dialogue, through which my patients understand the diagnostic process, their own unique problem, their treatment choices, and the recovery process. Patients help to guide and direct the diagnostic and treatment activities.
I believe that knowledgeable patients make the best decisions about their own treatment. That's why I explain every step of the diagnostic process. Next, I want my patients to understand their condition: How it developed and how various treatment approaches can improve or repair the problem. When we consider treatment alternatives, I present a realistic outlook on the results we can achieve. I'll also be frank about any risks that might be involved. If a non-surgical option is available, I'll explain that avenue in depth.
Our purpose is to handle each and every patient visit with care and proficiency. It is also highly important to us that our Doctor/Patient relationship is open and honest. It is my responsibility to make sure patients are well informed about their conditions and the multiple choices of treatment. My professional staff and I will also provide you with patient education materials, (e.g., web sites and pamphlets) that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options.
