Dr. Oren Tessler grew up in Montreal, Quebec. After earning his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Montreal’s McGill University and working in a biochemistry lab for two years, he applied to McGill’s joint M.D./M.B.A. program.

With Dr. Tessler’s interest in both medicine and business, the competitive five-year program was a natural next step. Medicine won out over business, however, at the start of Dr. Tessler’s third year of medical school, when he observed a two-and-a-half-hour cleft-lip-and-palate surgery.

After completing a competitive plastic surgery residency, also at McGill, Dr. Tessler accepted a fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. The position afforded him the opportunity to focus on microsurgery, reconstructive breast surgery and migraine surgery.

In 2012, Dr. Tessler visited New Orleans, and was drawn to the city’s burgeoning scientific and medical research developments – specifically those taking place at Louisiana State University.

Dr. Tessler teaches and treats patients in conjunction with the Louisiana Breast and Cervical Health Program at LSU. He cites the program’s comprehensive combination of cancer services as a boon to the community. In addition to teaching surgical residents as an assistant professor of clinical surgery, Dr. Tessler works with breast cancer patients at University Hospital. He knows that patients are often overwhelmed by their diagnosis; for this reason, he allots plenty of time for those who have questions.
