Stroke Research


  • Research is an integral part of our Neuroscience program and we are proud to offer progressive care. We continually assess and expand our research trials for the benefit of our patients. The program offers national and international studies which typically are found only at large, out of state institutions. We can provide the same opportunities and level of care right here in your backyard.
  • Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. These studies test new ways to prevent, detect, diagnose, or treat diseases. People who take part in Neuroscience clinical trials have an opportunity to contribute to scientists’ knowledge about Neuroscience and to help in the development of improved Neuroscience treatments. They also receive state-of-the-art care from Neuroscience experts.
  • Our physicians select patients whose conditions make them an eligible candidate to participate in a specific trial This website is designed for patients who want to learn more about clincial trials and explore the opportunities for either themselves or a loved one. For more information on Neuroscience clinical trials, New Orleans residents should contact a physician at West Jefferson Medical Center.
  • Trial participants have access to promising new interventions that are generally not available outside of a clinical trial.
  • The intervention being studied may be more effective than standard therapy. If it is more effective, trial participants may be the first to benefit from it.
  • Trial participants receive regular and careful medical attention from a research team that includes doctors, nurses and other health professionals.
  • The results of the trial may help other people who need Neuroscience treatment in the future.
  • Trial participants are helping scientists learn more about Neuroscience
