Owens earned her medical degree from Louisiana State University School
of Medicine in New Orleans. She completed her residency through the Louisiana
State University Health Sciences Center, also in New Orleans.
Professionally, she belongs to the American College of Surgeons, American
Medical Association, Association of Women Surgeons and Louisiana State
Owens specializes in diagnosis of and surgical intervention for complex
health conditions. Interventions include, but are not limited to: breast
cancer-related procedures, colonoscopy, colon resections, gallbladder
removal, hernia repair, laparoscopic and robotic procedures, tumor excisions,
splenectomy and thyroidectomy.
“I think it’s important to individualize the treatment plan
for each patient to fit his or her particular situation and needs because
outside circumstances can greatly influence the disease and healing processes,”
Likewise, Owens emphasizes the importance of early screening and preventative
health care in her practice.
“Early detection is very important – especially with breast
and colon cancer,” Owens explains. “If caught early enough,
both have a good chance of being cured.”
