Looking for a Orthopedic surgeon for knee replacement
I am looking for a local (N.O. or B.R area) that does knee replacements. I have been approved by the VA for my knee to be replaced, but since the hospital in N.O. is still months/years away from being ready, I have to have it done by a local surgeon that will accept the VA "insurance" payment. Any ideas and suggestions would be appreciated.

TIA

Thanks,

Think I met him. He works PT for the VA. He wants to do it, but said the VA won't let him.

Why dont you contact the VA for a list of approved surgeons?

Derek Jones in Nola. Him personally or anyone out of his office. They are the surgeons for the Saints.

Tried that, they gave me a list of 4 doctors none of which do knee replacements. Was hoping that maybe someone else knew of another doctor that might be available to help out.

Do not know a thing about him, but to make the assumption that because one doctor works for a sports team he is the best for any condition is false. Believe me there is a complete different technique required for an arthritic knee replacement vs a meniscus repair for an athlete...again I do not know anything about the guy and he may be great at both

Thad Broussard in Baton Rouge does good work, and takes Tricare/VA insurance.

re: Looking for a Orthopedic surgeon for knee replacement
Unfortunately, he does not take the VA insurance any more. He was scheduled to do this for me last year when the VA insurance method changed.

I thought he was great too. He cleaned up my knee the year before for the VA.

Thanks

Dr. Bryan Griffith in BR did my ankle. I believe he does hip and knee replacements too. Did a great job saving my foot. I would recommend

ETA he's at the surgical specialty center off bluebonnet when I was seeing him about 5 years ago
