Dr. Landes grew up on Long Island, where he lived throughout his entire childhood. He moved to Rhode Island in 1995 to attend college and medical school at Brown University.  His initial interest in medicine came mostly from his grandfather, who specialized in both Internal Medicine and Allergy.  He was accepted into Brown University's Program in Liberal Medical Education out of high school, which is an 8 year track towards a medical degree.  Besides taking the standard medical prerequisite classes during college,  Dr. Landes chose Mathematics as his major and Classics as his minor.  


During the last couple of years of medical school, it became apparent that Surgery was his passion, and more specifically, being directly involved in the life-saving aspects of medicine.  From there, he pursued his Surgical training at Tulane University, an excellent atmosphere for learning about trauma and acute care.  During those five years, he worked at the historic Charity hospital, well known for providing comprehensive care for a wide variety of medical and surgical illnesses.  In the midst of his training, New Orleans was struck with one of the most catastrophic natural disasters, Hurricane Katrina.  His fiancee' Christine was working as a nurse at Tulane Hospital when they were both stranded there for five days.  Miraculously, the entire team at Tulane was able to evacuate over 120 inpatients safely, without any loss of life.  His training continued as he helped rebuild and continue the Tulane Surgery training program until graduating in 2008.


Dr. Landes began his private practice in General Surgery in 2008.  He was especially interested in minimally invasive and colorectal procedures.  His practice had a wide scope, including colon cancer, hernias, gallbladder surgery, thyroid procedures, amputations, and whatever else was called upon him from the general surgery realm.  Eventually, the opportunity to work with the training of the LSU surgery residents was available, which gradually allowed him to move away from private practice and towards his current job.  He now works as an acute care and trauma surgeon at Lafayette General Hospital, assisting future surgeons in their education while, still providing emergent care to the people of Acadiana.
