Neurosurgery is that specialty of surgery that provides the operative and non-operative management of disorders of the central, peripheral, and autonomic nervous systems. Neurological surgery encompasses treatment of disorders of the nervous system; of the brain, meninges, and skull; and of the blood supply. Neurological surgeons are involved in prevention, diagnosis, evaluation, treatment, critical care, and rehabilitation of patients.
The team of neurosurgeons at Culicchia Neurological are affiliated with the LSU Department of Neurosurgery. These same neurosurgeons are an important part of the West Jefferson Medical Center neurosurgery team that was ranked among the top 10 percent in the United States for 2012.
