While most people think "brain surgeons" when they hear the term neurosurgery, it's actually much more than that. Neurosurgery encompasses the diagnosing and treatment of all brain, spine and nerve system disorders. This includes conditions such as brain and spinal cord tumors, aneurysms, bleeding inside the skull, Parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, some birth defects like hydrocephalus and spina bifida, epilepsy and related seizure disorders, intractable pain, spasticity and several psychiatric disorders.

As Baton Rouge's only full service community hospital, Neurosurgery is a vital service here at Baton Rouge General. We understand that experience, quality and expertise are important to you and your family, so we encourage you to learn more about the services we perform.
