ABOUT NEW ORLEANS AREA PHYSICAL MEDICINE DR. ANDREA TOOMER

Specialties: Back, Neck & Spine, Pain, Fibromyalgia, Spasticity, Spinal cord injury, Brain injury

Andrea Toomer, M.D. says one of the most gratifying aspects of being a physician is watching her patients recover from disabling pain and spinal injuries. As a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, Dr. Toomer works with patients to restore their function and movement.

Dr. Toomer is a New Orleans native, a graduate of Mount Carmel High School and LSU School of Medicine. She returned home after completing a residency at Carolinas Rehabilitation in Charlotte, North Carolina. She is particularly excited about advances made in the treatment of spasticity, a condition which results from spinal cord injury, stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions. “Through botox injections, oral medications, and intrathecal baclofen pumps, we are now able to help patients suffering from limited movement due to spasticity.

Dr. Toomer is a faculty educator for Medtronic Neuromodulation division and educates physicians on the use of intrathecal baclofen therapy. Doctors from all over the country travel to Culicchia Neurological Clinic to study the use of spasticity treatments. Additionally, she represents the Southeast region on the medical advisory board national for Kindred, the largest inpatient rehab company in the nation.

“It’s not just about life – It’s about quality of life.” – Andrea Toomer, M.D.

As one of the largest neurological and neurosurgical practices in the New Orleans Gulf South region, Culicchia Neurological Clinic focuses specifically on Neurocare to ensure that our patients receive the best possible outcome.
