Dr. Dasa's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dasa "Dr. Dasa completed his undergraduate and medical school in the 7 year combined degree program at Union College and Albany Medical College in New York. After completing medical school, Dr. Dasa trained in the State University at New York (SUNY) at Buffalo orthopaedic surgery residency program. In 2006 he furthered his training at the Insall Scott Kelly Institute, Manhattan, New York, in Sports Medicine and Joint Replacement Surgery. This fellowship is internationally recognized as one of the pioneers in total knee replacement surgery. After completing his fellowship Dr. Dasa and his wife, Dr. Priya Velu, decided to begin their careers as faculty at LSUHSC to help rebuild post Katrina. In his tenure at LSU he has developed surgical techniques to allow outpatient total knee replacement and pioneered the use of cutting edge technologies such as iovera. He has presented and published his research internationally in some of the world's leading publications and meetings. He serves in leadership roles both regionally and nationally and was most recently involved in national expert panels to help CMS redesign the delivery of total joint replacements, establish national guidelines on the surgical management of knee arthritis, and management of total knee replacements with patients with rheumatic diseases. He currently serves as vice chair for academic affairs for the department of orthopedics, Irvin cahen endowed chair for research, past president of the Ochsner Kenner Medical staff, chair of the LSU clinical practice leadership group, chief medical officer and principal for an innovative start up, SIGHT Medical, chair of the mysocience advisory board, and many other roles. His research interests cover all areas of adult orthopaedics, but have primarily focused on joint replacement, knee arthritis, outcomes, and value. He is developing new research infrastructure within LSU to develop novel concepts bridging basic science, population health, and big data."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dasa "http://orthodoc.aaos.org/dasa 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, pamphlets, and video tapes) that give you added appreciation of your condition and treatment options."

Patient Comments (2)

He is always seems to be in a rush & is not up front on what he "specializes" in. Had an appt on the 7/18 with him. Already had x-rays in hand on disk from previous dr. However, he required his own x-rays. He said meniscus and sent me for MRI. Got that on 7/27. Went back to him today at 9...more
