SCLA Staff

Michelle Treen, RN


Bariatric Clinical Nurse Coordinator
Michelle earned her RN degree at Louisiana State University School of Nursing and attended William Carey School of Nursing where she trained as an operating room technician. She has been an integral part of Surgical Clinic of Louisiana since it was founded in 2000. As the Nurse Coordinator for our Bariatric Surgery program, Michelle handles all aspects of bariatric patient care, and assists our surgeons in the SCLA Marrero office. As a teenager, Michelle attended Weight-Watchers to gain control of her own weight problem. That experience has enabled her to approach bariatric patient care with a personal perspective, which has been an inspiring benefit to all of our patients.
