Many neurological conditions affect your quality of life, from movement disorders and tremors to degenerative diseases that cause chronic pain. The Tulane Neuroscience Center’s stereotactic and functional neurosurgery program focuses on advanced “restorative” neurosurgery techniques, using the latest technologies and science to help you return to the activities and passions most important to you, regardless of your diagnosis.
Stereotactic neurosurgery, or surgery that allows highly accurate positioning of probes in the brain using three-dimensional imaging, is a growing field used to effectively treat neurological conditions such as:
Stereotactic and functional neurosurgery also has applications in a wide variety of other neurological conditions, including:
- Degenerative diseases
- Neurological injuries
- Psychiatric disorders
- Brain tumors
As part of the Tulane Neuroscience Center, our neurosurgeons work with a multidisciplinary team to explore all treatment options before recommending a surgical approach. Our goal with every patient is to restore function and eliminate neurological symptoms and pain.
