Stephane Lavoie was born in one of North America's oldest cities, Quebec. He was raised in French Canada with his sister and three brothers. Dr. Lavoie completed undergraduate studies in pre-medicine while balancing the rigors of competing on a National Championship intercollegiate volleyball team.
Dr. Lavoie attended medical school at Laval University in Quebec and soon realized he wanted to be a surgeon of the musculoskeletal system. During his residency, Dr. Lavoie developed a love for Orthopaedic surgery because of the practical aspects it held. It was also during his residency that Dr. Lavoie met his wife Josee. They currently have one child. After completing his residency Dr. Lavoie was selected to complete a fellowship specializing in spine surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.
After being heavily recruited the Lavoie family accepted the offer to relocate to the DeLand area and join the practice of Florida Orthopaedic Associates, P.A. The Sunshine State was a logical choice to the Lavoie family since many Quebekers think of Florida as a second home. The Lavoie's were also drawn to the quality of life of a smaller town and the close relationships that are so typical of our community.
Dr. Lavoie brings a new level of medical service to our patients, being the first fellowship-trained spine surgeon in the Sanford and West Volusia area. Dr. Lavoie is proud to be the newest member of Florida Orthopaedic Associates and looks forward to providing health care to the residents of Volusia County.
