Neurosurgery

Offering some of the most talented neurosurgeons in the region - combined with advanced technology and surgical facilities - Lourdes provides outstanding treatment for patients who require invasive neurological procedures.

Our neurosurgery services are focused on the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of disorders or injuries to the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. Lourdes is the only hospital in Acadiana that offers aneurysm coiling - a life-saving procedure utilized to prevent aneurysms from rupturing. In addition, we are one of only two hospitals in the state to offer a new surgical technique using a tool called BrainPath technology. The BrainPath approach provides patients a minimally invasive option, which means faster recover from surgery. More importantly, it enables surgeons to go deeper toward the center of the brain to treat hemorrhagic strokes and tumors that were previously considered inoperable.


Lourdes offers a wide range of neurosurgical procedures utilized to treat conditions including:

  • Head and Spine Trauma
  • Tumors
  • Brain Aneurysms
  • Hematomas
  • Movement Disorders
