Baton Rouge General has been the most trusted name in healthcare in Baton Rouge for more than a century. In 1958 we performed the city’s first open-heart surgery, and in 1961, the city’s first pacemaker procedure. Our surgeons continue to keep us in the forefront of surgical innovation with the latest robotic and minimally invasive procedures and leading technologies, all to provide you with better outcomes.

Whether you’re considering an outpatient/same-day surgery or an inpatient procedure with one of our surgeons, you can be confident that you will receive the highest quality care in a safe environment surrounded by compassion and excellence.
