Dr. Townsend saved my husband's life on 12/28/2011! He performed heroic surgery on him after he arrived at Ochsner via Air-Med that day, when doctors in Lafayette were unable to do anything more for him!!!!!! Our family is forever indebted to Dr. Townsend and we pray he will see these comments and know how grateful we are for his knowledge and expertise in the OR that day and his amazing bedside manner and treatment at Ochsner in the month following surgery??
