Blane A. Sessions, M.D.

  Born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Dr. Sessions attended and graduated Magna Cum Laude with honors from Centenary College of Louisiana in Shreveport, Louisiana, where he played Division I baseball. After college, he earned his medical degree and completed his post graduate training in Orthopedic Surgery at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

After mentorship by Harold Stokes, MD in residency, he completed the internationally prestigious Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery Fellowship with training in micro-vascular and pediatric surgery at the Philadelphia Hand to Shoulder Center in conjunction with Thomas Jefferson University and Shriner's Hospital.

    "I was inspired to become a physician by my uncle, Dr. J. Wayne Sessions, a general surgeon in North Louisiana.  I went on to be mentored by a hand surgeon, Dr. Stokes, who taught me the values of caring for all upper extremity problems. I genuinely strive to treat all my patients as if they were family members or friends - with empathy, compassion, and concern for the best possible outcome. Very few people get to do a job they love....I am very blessed to help others in a profession I truly enjoy, appreciate, and love."

With this philosophy in mind, he has organized his practice to accommodate same day or next day appointments.  Named as a 2017, 2016, & 2013 Top Doctor by Main Line Today in the Philadelphia area, Dr. Sessions' interest is in specialized Hand to Shoulder Orthopedics for all ages. He is board-certified in both Orthopaedics and Hand to Upper Extremity surgery.  

After five years of practice in the Philadelphia area, he is excited to be back in Louisiana on the Northshore to be closer to family and friends, establishing the Louisiana Hand to Shoulder Center, LLC.

I enjoy being able to carry forward my nursing background and experience while examining and treating patients with orthopedic upper extremity conditions."
