Our Specialties

Neurosurgical Institute of Lake Charles offers patients access to some of the most advanced surgical treatment and care for brain and cranial disorders. Our board certified neurological surgeons bring academic and hands-on neurosurgical experience to the Lake Charles area, providing sophisticated surgical techniques usually found only in top academic medical centers. Our neurosurgeons' will educate and assist you with the decision-making process - providing you with information about your full range of options, and describing what is technically possible, the difficulty and risk of the procedure and potential benefits. It's important that you select a surgeon who is readily available to answer your questions, pre and post procedure, and to give you the information needed to decided whether or not to proceed with surgery.
