Felix 'Buddy' H. Savoie III, MD, Chairman of Orthopaedics
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 are experts in orthopaedic problems for patients of 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 about all aspects of the musculoskeletal system. We have a fully accredited 5 year Orthopaedic Residency. Our doctors teach Tulane University Medical Students and Sports Medicine Fellows. Through presentations at regional, national, and international orthopaedic meetings, our doctors share their knowledge with doctors all over the world.
We conduct clinical and basic research of the musculoskeletal system, as part of our mission, and our results are published in a wide range of medical journals.
Please contact us if you need any further assistance.
If you are new to Tulane Orthopaedics or unsure of how to access our care, please call (504) 988-4013 and we will be happy to work with you to find the right physician to solve your orthopaedic needs.
