2017 Acadiana Steel Magnolia
A Lafayette native and St. Thomas More graduate, Dr. Dee Garrett has always held a passion for her Acadiana community and family. After receiving training in pediatric surgery, Dr. Garrett returned to aid the local community as a pediatric surgeon at Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Lafayette.
“As pediatric surgeons, we serve as general surgeons for newborns, children, and adolescents, and there is an incredible need in Lafayette,” she says.
Outside of the operating room, Dr. Garrett stays involved in the community by serving on the Louisiana Emergency Response Network board, the Children’s Museum of Acadiana board, and the United Blood Services council. She also currently serves as President of the Lafayette Parish Medical Society.
