Born in the Dallas/Fort Worth area in Texas, Dr. Lavo attended Baylor University (Sic 'Em Bears!) for his undergraduate education where he obtained a bachelor's degree in Economics. He attended medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas which he completed in May of 2015 and then he went on to complete a residency in Otolaryngology locally at the LSU Health Science Center in Shreveport. During his residency he fell in love with Northwest Louisiana and decided to make it his home, joining the staff of Willis Knighton after completing his training.
Dr. Lavo's practice covers the majority of traditional ENT practice including sinus and allergy, pediatrics (including chronic ear infections and tonsillitis), otology and ear disorders, and voice and swallow dysfunction.
When not at work Dr. Lavo enjoys tinkering with new electronic tech, cooking with his wife, and avoiding mowing the lawn.
