Dr. John Cazale is a board-certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in shoulder and knee surgery and is a valuable addition to the Crescent City Orthopedics team.

Dr. Cazale is no stranger to the world of orthopedic medicine. Before becoming a partner at Crescent City Orthopedics, he was a private practitioner in the New Orleans area. Since 1981, he's been a name local patients have trusted for their orthopedic care.

Dr. Cazale received his medical degree from LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine. He then participated in an internship at Charity Hospital before joining the U.S. Army.

After serving in the Army, Dr. Cazale completed his orthopedic surgery residency at Tulane University School of Medicine, where he later returned as chairman of several orthopedic departments.

Dr. Cazale presents patients with a greater variety of treatment options as a result of watching the field of orthopedics develop over the years. His experience, leadership, and knowledge combined with a personable approach to patient care have made him an asset to the Crescent City Orthopedics team.

Dr. Cazale is available to see patients at our office in Metairie.
