As a result of the recent Executive Order from the office of the Governor of the State of Florida and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our patients during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have postponed the scheduling of elective surgeries and procedures until further notice. This helps us minimize the chance of infection for our patients and staff, conserves the use of personal protective equipment and maintains resources for those who might become critically ill in the future. We will resume scheduling elective surgeries and other procedures once the situation improves. Please reach out to your primary health care provider if you have any questions or concerns.
UF Health Shands Hospital ranked one of the nation's and region's top hospitals for
neurology & neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report.
A leader in Florida for neurosurgical care.
UF Health neurosurgeons are dedicated to advancing the field of neurosurgery by providing leading-edge, compassionate care for children and adults and conducting unparalleled research for the full range of neurosurgical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
UF Health Neurosurgery has comprehensive treatment programs, including minimally invasive surgical options for the treatment of brain tumors, neurovascular diseases, functional disorders and other complex conditions requiring neurosurgery. We offer the full spectrum of treatment options, and we are developing promising new treatments for neurological diseases that are extremely difficult to treat with conventional therapies.
The highly trained neurosurgeons at UF Health Neurosurgery take a patient-centered approach to care. Because no two individuals respond in the same way to any treatment, the multidisciplinary team of specialists provides highly individualized diagnostics and treatment plans. The ultimate goal is to provide the optimal patient experience.
One well-known strength of UF Health Neurosurgery is the ability to translate the latest research into clinical practice, giving people direct and rapid access to the latest treatment breakthroughs. This is especially crucial for people who have complex neurosurgical conditions and limited treatment options.
Another strength of UF Health Neurosurgery is the world-class care offered for stroke and other cerebrovascular conditions. The UF Health Shands Comprehensive Stroke Center is nationally certified by The Joint Commission for offering the highest level of stroke care available anywhere in the world.
Highly trained cerebrovascular/endovascular surgeons have an expert understanding of these conditions and use the most sophisticated technology available to offer people the best possible care. Experienced coordinators guide the care path of every patient who comes to UF Health, from initial contact in the emergency room to hospital care on a particular unit, to transition home or, if necessary, to a rehabilitation facility.
