Neurology is the field of medicine concerned with diagnosis and treatment of all categories of disease or impaired function of the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, muscles, and autonomic nervous system, as well as the blood vessels that relate to these structures. The neurologist is a consultant to other physicians but also is the principal physician and may render all levels of care commensurate with his/her training. Common conditions treated by a neurologist include: stroke, aneurysm, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, brain tumors, migraines, head and spinal injuries, vascular malformation of brain and spinal cord.
The team of neurosurgeons at Culicchia Neurological are affiliated with the LSU Department of Neurosurgery. These same neurosurgeons are an important part of the West Jefferson Medical Center neurosurgery team that was ranked among the top 10 percent in the United States for 2012.
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.

“As I stood to get ready for the day, I started losing my balance,” Abrusley said. “My whole left side wasn’t working.”
Sarah Abrusley awoke to face a normal day, heading to work at a French Quarter hotel and attending dance rehearsals that evening. But a piercing headache over her right eye would signal big changes ahead for the 29-year-old ballet dancer.
An athletic, nonsmoking vegetarian under the age of 30 isn’t the typical candidate for a stroke. But before the day was over, Abrusley would be counted among Louisiana stroke victims. When Abrusley arrived at West Jefferson, she required immediate surgery to save her life. A hemicraniectomy was performed.
Despite her stroke, Abrusley says she will one day dance again. (Photo credit: WGNO.com)
