Biography

Dr. Vinod Dasa completed his undergraduate and medical school in a seven 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 orthopedic 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 decided to begin their careers as faculty at LSU Health Sciences Center to help rebuild post-Katrina.

In his tenure at LSU, he has developed surgical techniques to allow outpatient opioid-free 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 worlds leading publications and meetings. He serves in leadership roles both regionally and nationally and was most recently involved in national expert panels to help redesign the delivery of total joint replacements and establish national guidelines on the management of knee arthritis. He currently serves as vice-chair for academic affairs for the department of orthopedics, Irvin Cahen endowed chair for research, chair of the LSU clinical practice leadership group. He is the co-founder and chief medical officer for an innovative start up, SIGHT Medical, and helped co- found a novel medical education platform called DOC SOCIAL.

His research interests cover all areas of adult orthopedics focusing on joint replacement, knee arthritis, health disparities and outcomes research.

Ochsner Patient Verified Reviews

To obtain patient ratings and comments, we partner with Press Ganey, an independent patient satisfaction company that works with more than 26,000 healthcare organizations to improve the patient experience. These patient verified ratings are based on the “likelihood to recommend” physician scores on the nationally developed Medical Practice Survey. Actual top box results for this question are translated to a 1-5 scale, and the star scores are measured on that scale, with 5 being the best score.

Very very good.

Dr. Dasa personifies all the qualities that I look for in a medical provider. He did a wonderful job explaining treatment options with the associated risks and benefits. He explained age appropriate options without being condescending. I liked that he gave me material to study at home and encouraged me to follow up for further treatment and with any questions.
