The Neurology Department provides inpatient and outpatient care for the evaluation, diagnosis and implementation of therapies for neurologic disorders. The clinic includes a full range of neurodiagnostic services including EEG, EMG and evoked potentials.

Special areas of interest are epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, metabolic diseases and inborn errors in metabolism. Neurology also offers general rehabilitative services.

The Neurosurgery Department provides evaluation and surgical treatment of diseases or congenital anomalies of the central nervous system and peripheral nerves. Particular attention is given to the treatment of brain tumors, craniospinal trauma, spasticity, craniofacial anomalies, and the care of patients with congenital malformation of the central nervous system. A specialized eight-bed Spinal Unit is also available to neurosurgical patients. Patients are also seen at the Metairie Center, located at 3040 33rd Street (near the Galleria).
