Central Florida will soon welcome a new specialized neurosurgery practice in downtown Orlando.
Orlando Health and the University of Florida have partnered to expand Orlando Health’s neurosurgery program and open a new specialized practice called the UF Health Neurosurgery-Orlando Health.
The new five-member practice will be located at Orlando Health’s downtown campus and is the first of its kind between Orlando Health and the UF Health program, according to a news release.
The practice will bring together neurosurgeons with diverse backgrounds and subspecialties that treat conditions including stroke and other cerebrovascular diseases, epilepsy, spine and spinal cord conditions, brain tumors, movement disorders, hemifacial spasms, and cervical and lumbar herniated disc problems.
The specialists will also provide neurosurgery trauma call for Orlando Regional Medical Center’s Level 1 trauma center.
“The UF Health neurosurgical practice will bring new subspecialties to our community, improve access to neurosurgical expertise, and enhance neurosurgical services we currently offer including comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for stroke patients,” said Carlos Carrasco, chief operating officer of ORMC. “The physicians will also work closely with the neurosurgeons at Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children to collaborate in pediatric neurosurgery as well.”
