Advanced Treatments for Better Results

This minimally invasive surgical technique is performed through the natural orifice of the nose, reducing scarring and recovery time. Advanced technology allows the surgeon to reach the deep structure of the skull base with improved visualization and minimal disturbance to other parts of the brain. Conditions Treated:

1 in 3 Americans Have Prediabetes

Diabetes is a very common health condition in America and most cases develop due to genetic factors. This means that you can develop diabetes regardless of your age, gender, race, lifestyle or fitness level — and there’s nothing you can do to prevent it. By getting a proper diabetes screening with a specially trained endocrinologists, you can help catch the disease early and begin treatment to reduce symptoms and prevent the onset of severe conditions.

 

At Florida Hospital, you’re surrounded by the strength and technology of one of the regions most advanced neuroscience institutes. We treat some of the most complex conditions including:

Brain Tumors:
Smarter Treatment Options

We’re known for providing better outcomes to patients suffering from brain tumors for two important reasons: advanced technology in minimally invasive brain surgery and a dedicated and highly skilled surgical team. Our smarter treatment options include Gamma Knife® Radiosurgery, endoscopic brain surgery, endoscopic endonasal skull-base surgery, and MRI-guided Laser Interstitial thermal therapy.

Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery

Smarter brain surgery. Faster recovery.

Few hospitals are more committed to providing advanced treatment options for patients with neurological disease than the Florida Hospital Neuroscience Institute (FHNSI). This state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary environment combines advanced technology with nationally recognized physicians. In 2014, over one-third of all surgeries performed at FHNSI were by a minimally invasive technique, leading to faster recovery and better outcomes. Florida Hospital is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s best hospitals for neurology and neurosurgery.

Experienced Expertise

At Florida Hospital, you’re surrounded by the strength and technology of one of the regions most advanced neuroscience institutes. We treat some of the most complex conditions including:

  • Chondrosarcoma
  • Clival tumors
  • Craniopharyngioma
  • Epidermoid / dermoid cysts
  • Esthesioneuroblastoma / olfactory neuroblastoma
  • Inflammatory pseudotumor
  • Inverting papilloma
  • Juvenile nasopharyngeal angiofibroma (JNA)
  • Meningioma
  • Neurofibroma20px
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Rathke’s cleft cysts
  • Skull-base tumors

Brain Port Surgery

This minimally invasive procedure accurately targets tumors within the substance or fluid-filled spaces of the brain. Inserted into the brain with millimeter accuracy, Brain Port Surgery minimizes trauma to the brain and surrounding tissue and reduces pain, scarring and recovery time. Conditions Treated:

  • Colloid cysts
  • Intraventricular Tumors
  • Central Neurocytoma
  • Meningiomas
  • Subependymomas
  • Subependymal Giant Cell Astrocytoma (SEGA)
  • Craniopharyngiomas
  • Pineal and Third Ventricular Tumors
  • Astrocytomas / Gliomas
  • Glioblastoma
  • Intracerebral Hemorrhage
  • Cavernous Malformations
  • Hemangioblastoma
  • Metastatic tumors
  • Other tumors

Endoscopic Microvascular Decompression

One of the few centers to offer this minimally invasive surgical technique. Through a tiny opening behind the ear, the neurosurgeon advances with optical technology and surgical instrumentation to relieve the abnormal compression of the cranial nerve. Patients experience faster healing and improved outcomes. Conditions Treated:

  • Glossopharyngeal Neuralgia
  • Medically Intractible Vertigo
  • Other forms of neurovascular compression syndromes
  • Trigeminal neuralgia
  • Hemi-facial spasm
  • Geniculate Neuralgia – Nervus Intermedius Neuralgia
  • Acoustic neuromas
  • Arteriovenous Malformations (AVMs)
  • Brain tumors
  • Chordomas
  • Gliomas
  • Meningiomas
  • Metastatic brain tumors
  • Movement disorders
  • Pituitary tumors
  • Trigeminal Neuralgia

The gold standard in non-invasive brain surgery. Treating complex conditions with tiny incisions or no incisions, this technique reduces pain, scarring and recovery time. By delivering a single dose of radiation that accurately targets the tumor - the patient is free of multiple treatments. Conditions Treated:

Gamma Knife® Perfexion

  • Brain Metastasis
  • Symptomatic Radiation Necrosis
  • Astrocytomas and Gliomas
  • Epilepsy

Offered at few centers around the country, this new minimally invasive surgical technique is used for brain tumors unresponsive to such treatments as radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
While in the intraoperative MRI, the tissue is selectively heated via a laser probe’s light energy until cell death is achieved. Conditions Treated:

MRI-guided Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy

Interventional Neuroradiology (INR)

INR is the specialty that developed and uses minimally invasive approaches to vascular diseases of the brain, head and neck and spine. Such procedures include carotid stenting, endovascular treatment of brain aneurysms, acute stroke intervention, embolization of vascular malformations of brain and spine and intracranial and vertebral artery angioplasty and stenting. Conditions Treated:

  • Carotid stenosis
  • Brain aneurysms
  • Arteriovenous malformations of the brain
  • Dural arteriovenous fistulae of the head and spine
  • Vertebral and intracranial arterial stenoses
  • Vascular tumors
  • Vertebral compression fractures
