Neurosurgery Service to Return to University Hospital

Dr. Culicchia, chairman of LSU neurosurgery, recently unveiled plans to reestablish full neurosurgery services at University Hospital, the LSU Interim Hospital. This could be effective as early as January 1st. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, and the closure of Charity Hospital, the neurosurgery service withdrew from University Hospital because the facilities could not maintain enough elective (non-emergency) cases to meet accredidation standards for educating the residents. After extensive negotiations, the chairman was pleased to announce that he has been able to arrange the operating room space to return to full services. University Hospital is the primary source of neurosurgical care for the uninsured in southeastern Louisiana.
