Longtime Orthopaedic Surgeon & Former LSU Resident, Dr. Charles A. Roth, Passes Away at 68

Dr. Roth was a highly valuable and respected member of our LSU family and the effects of his passing are already being felt by his former colleagues.

After medical school, Dr. Roth completed an internship at Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Louisiana followed by an orthopedic residency at LSU Department of Orthopadeics. He received special training in Sports Medicine in affiliation with Dr. David Drez in Lake Charles, Louisiana.

Dr. Roth is survived by his loving wife, Dana (Criswell) Roth, devoted sons, Adam and Dr. Travis Roth (from first marriage to Dr. Diana Edgar), and his sister, Amy (Roth) Miller and Steve Miller of Montpelier, Vermont.
