LSU Health surgeon receives honor


Dr. Navdeep Samra, associate professor and assistant program director of surgery at LSU Health Shreveport, was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons in October during the ACS Conference held in San Diego, California.

The designation as a Fellow is granted to surgeons whose education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation process meeting the high standards established by ACS.

Dr. Samra works in the Division of Trauma & Critical Care Surgery, caring for patients at LSU Health’s partner hospital University Health Shreveport, home to the region’s only Level 1 Trauma Center.
