Our Physician

William Sherman, M.D.

William Sherman, M.D.

A native of Southeastern Louisiana, Dr. Sherman received his Bachelor's and Medical Degree from LSU. He has received numerous awards for surgical excellence and is Chief of Arthroplasty and assistant professor of Orthopaedic Surgery at LSU. He also is the Director of LSU's annual Arthroplasty Course teaching other physicians the latest techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery. He is Team Physician for the New Orleans Zephyrs, the AAA affiliate of the Florida Marlins Major League Baseball Team and most importantly, he is dedicated to providing the right solution to your injury or chronic joint pain.

He was fellowship trained in Adult Reconstruction at Harvard focusing on hip and knee replacements, including primary procedures and complex revision cases. Today, he stands as one of our region's most influential orthopedists. He says the most rewarding aspect of his practice is meeting someone whose quality of life is suffering due to hip or knee pain and being able to give that person back a fully active painfree and enjoyable life only a short time later.
