Advanced stroke care
Our hospital is recognized as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by DNV-GL. We offer full-service stroke care to patients coming to our emergency room. When local emergency medical services inform our staff of an incoming patient with stroke symptoms, we call a "stroke alert." This protocol allows for an expedited evaluation and treatment process.
We offer lifesaving treatments — tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) or neurointerventional procedures — for patients experiencing ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes.
Our brain tumor care
The neurologists and oncologists at our hospital work together to provide complete care to patients with benign (noncancerous) and malignant (cancerous) brain tumors. We know that receiving a brain tumor diagnosis can be overwhelming, which is why we are here to offer the compassionate care you need on your journey to restored quality of life.
At HCA Florida Gainesville Neurology, we treat several types of brain tumors, including malignant primary tumors, meningioma, metastatic tumors, schwannoma and transnasal pituitary tumors. In addition to treating brain tumors, we also treat skull-based lesions. We offer stereotactic radiosurgery to treat tumors in the brain. This is a non-surgical treatment that delivers targeted doses of radiation to help preserve healthy brain tissue.
Our neurosurgeons work hand-in-hand with spine surgeons to provide care for acute and chronic conditions affecting the spine. Our spine care services include non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy, pain management and minimally invasive procedures.
Physical therapy and rehabilitation
Following a neurosurgical procedure or a neurological diagnosis, patients often require continued care through physical therapy and rehabilitation. Our inpatient rehabilitation team includes licensed occupational and speech therapists who are here to aid patients in their recoveries. Rehabilitation helps patients relearn activities of daily living and regain strength.
Neurosurgery is delicate and demands precision. This is why our surgeons use robotic surgery to perform certain procedures. Robot-assisted technology is completely controlled by your neurosurgeon and allows for planned, precise movements during surgery.
