Former LSU Orthopaedic Faculty Member & LSU Offensive Lineman, Dr. Keith Melancon, Loses Battle With Brain Cancer

Remembering Dr. John Roberts

Sept. 28, 2020             

Today, we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Keith P. Melancon, who was, among many things, a great orthopaedic surgeon, an esteemed faculty member, and a fearsome offensive lineman for the LSU football team, class of 1986.

Dr. Melancon lost his 20-year battle with brain cancer, but his contributions to the LSU Department of Orthopaedics and beyond will live on. Our deepest condolences to the Melancon family.
