Our dedicated faculty physicians, residents, and nursing team offer all neurosurgical subspecialties to patients, perform cutting-edge research in labs, and take advantage of Oschner LSU Health Shreveport’s world-class facilities to deliver outstanding care to patients and their families during the most critical times.
Our surgeons are considered leaders in their fields, offering patients extraordinary technical expertise in fields as diverse as aneurysm, pediatric neurosurgery, epilepsy, spine, and stroke. Many are continually publishing articles in their specialties and performing research that explores new approaches for treating neurological conditions.
Patient care and training take place at four partner hospitals: Ochsner LSU Health Academic Medical Center, Willis-Knighton, Shriners Children’s Hospital, and the Overton Brooks Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Students and residents also rotate through rural hospitals and clinics in the region.
Oschner-LSU Health operates our teaching hospitals and clinics in Shreveport and Monroe, which include the area’s only Level 1 Trauma Center and the Feist-Weiller Cancer Center.
The Department of Neurosurgery is not only one of the top practices in the South, we are also one of the top neurosurgery residency programs in the country, offering exposure to multiple neurosurgical sub-specialties and unique local benefits of global neurosurgery in the form of a free neurosurgery clinic that serves patients from throughout the state and region.
An advantage of our academic setting and our focus on specialized expertise is that patients are directed to the most appropriate specialist rather than the first available surgeon. We promote cross-discipline consultation and interdisciplinary approaches to patient care. Our doctors work together incredibly well, and patients benefit from a true team effort.
