Orlando Health Neurosciences
What we sense, what we know, who we are; the workings of our brain define us. In health, our brains function with unyielding extraordinaire, but when problems occur, the results can devastate patients and their families.
Neurological diseases comprise the third-largest world health concern after heart disease and cancer. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 50 million people in this country, or 1 in 5, endures some problem with the nervous system, and it is a growing concern.
Fortunately, we are at a new frontier of knowledge in which scientific breakthroughs will increasingly provide unprecedented opportunities for treatment. In a truly collaborative effort, we are striving to understand the causes of neurological disease, and striving to bring together the disciplines to transform great science into great medicine.
Our neurosciences physicians and support staff are skillful and experienced not only in treating all types of neurological disorders, but throughout recovery as well. The Orlando Health Rehabilitation Institute provides inpatient and outpatient care for our patients recovering from surgeries or in treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, trigeminal neuralgia, spinal cord injury, epilepsy, brain tumors and injuries, and stroke.

- Stroke Center
- Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Neurosurgery patients at Orlando Health will experience many benefits of our affiliation with UF Health. This relationship gives patients the best of both worlds with a locally based group of board-certified neurosurgeons and the resources of UF Health’s world-renowned faculty of experienced surgeons.
The clinical collaboration between Orlando Health and UF Health offers a full range of neurosurgical services, including cerebrovascular surgery, radiosurgery, epilepsy treatment, spine and spinal cord surgery, pediatric neurosurgery, brain tumor surgery and the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm.
Neurosurgeons on Orlando Health’s roster of physicians also are adjunct faculty members of the UF College of Medicine, teaching medical students in Orlando as well as residents and surgeons who are on specialized fellowships. Practicing medicine in an academic environment offers clear advantages for patients, as these physicians must meet the highest standards in order to qualify to teach other doctors.
Our team of surgeons, nurse practitioners, support staff and rehabilitation therapists are committed to providing the most technically superb, compassionate and timely care.
