Disorders of the nervous system can affect the entire body and threaten a patient’s life or independence. Treatment and management is likely to involve many different healthcare providers and multiple specialties. The Tulane Neuroscience Center now provides access to all neuroscience specialists in one location, providing easy, quick access for patients and caregivers alike. The Tulane Neuroscience Center works in partnership with the Tulane University School of Medicine’s Center for Clinical Neurosciences, where Tulane physicians train many of our nation’s neurosurgeons and neurologists. Because the center is part of an academic medical center, patients have access to clinical trials and innovative new treatments.
Tulane Health System is an acclaimed teaching, research and medical system serving the greater New Orleans area. Tulane has more than 500 credentialed physicians who provide leading-edge care, ranging from primary to tertiary to quaternary. Facilities in the New Orleans area include Tulane Medical Center, Tulane Lakeside Hospital for Women and Children, Tulane Pediatrics, Tulane Cancer Center Comprehensive Clinic, Tulane Transplant Institute, Tulane Multispecialty Center Metairie, Tulane Multispecialty Center Uptown, Tulane Multispecialty Center Downtown, Tulane Multispecialty Clinic Northshore, and Tulane Institute of Sports Medicine.
