Suma Maddox, MD Joins Memorial Medical Group

Suma Maddox, MD Joins Memorial Medical Group

Lake Charles Memorial Health System is pleased to welcome plastic and reconstructive surgeon Suma Maddox, MD to its medical staff. Suma Maddox, MD FACS, is a double board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Maddox began her training with a bachelor's degree in neuroscience from New York University and an MD from Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans, followed by a residency in general surgery at Brown University. Originally from Houma, Louisiana, Dr. Maddox returned to her home state in 2014 to work as a general and breast surgeon at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans.

The four years as a staff surgeon were pivotal in inspiring Dr. Maddox to seek more creativity in her career. Realizing her talent for oncoplastic breast surgery, in which cancer is removed and the breast artistically reconstructed for optimal aesthetic results, Dr. Maddox decided to pursue a new path of plastic surgery. After nine years as a general surgeon, she made the uncommon decision to resume training with a three-year fellowship at Louisiana State University in New Orleans in plastic and reconstructive surgery, focusing on microsurgery and breast cancer reconstruction.

Dr. Maddox welcomes new patients at her clinic located inside Lake Charles Memorial Hospital at 2770 3rd Ave., Suite 110. To schedule an appointment call 337.494.4862.
