Neuroscience Research

Overview

The Neuroscience Institute (NSI) Research Department is advancing the science of medicine in disease focused research. We are continuously seeking and conducting research and clinical trials aimed to further knowledge and understanding of neurological disorders. 

Our goal is to both improve diagnosis, treatment and functional outcomes, as well as reduce disease severity for patients who suffer from neurological disorders; ultimately working toward providing a better quality of life for our patients. Our research encompasses cutting edge pharmaceutical and medical devices, clinical registries, and physician-initiated trials. The research team is composed of a multidisciplinary neuroscience team including neurologists, strokologists, neuro-surgeons, neuro-radiologists, neuro-critical care intensivists, pharmacists, neuro-interventionists, neuropsychologists, neuro nurses, certified clinical research nurses and staff, and research scientists.

We work closely with our neuroscience clinical teams to uncover ways in which we can enhance our quality of care to make it affordable, connected and exceptional to the community that we serve.

Our Capabilities

The Neuroscience Institute treats more neurological patients than any other hospital in the United States. This assures our patients that they’re in experienced hands. We offer skilled physicians and specially trained health care professionals. We invest in state-of-the-art technology, which means our patients are afforded the latest, most advanced treatment options and techniques available, including:

  • Endoscopic Endonasal Skull Base Surgery
  • Brain Port Surgery
  • Endoscopic Microvascular Decompression
  • Gamma Knife® Perfexion™
  • MRI-guided Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy
  • Interventional Neuroradiology (INR)

This technology is considered 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 doesn't require multiple treatments. Gamma Knife Radiosurgery is a non-invasive brain surgery procedure, and despite its name, does not use blades or incisions. Instead, it targets and destroys diseased brain tissue with precisely focused radiation, while leaving surrounding healthy tissue unharmed. In fact, this treatment technology allows physicians to treat brain tumors, lesions, vascular malformations and functional disorders that were once considered inoperable.

AdventHealth is the only health care provider in Central Florida using this robotic-assisted, state-of-the-art technology. The Gamma Knife Center at AdventHealth Orlando includes a multidisciplinary team of medical experts from neurosurgery and radiation oncology. We have one of the largest and most experienced teams in the country, and utilize the Leksell Gamma Knife® Perfexion™—one of the most technologically advanced non-invasive brain surgery techniques available today.
