Advanced treatment. Better outcomes.
We offer the state-of-the-art operating room technology you would expect from the
University of Florida. Sophisticated endoscopic-assisted microneurosurgery offers
surgeons greater precision. Intraoperative imaging allows surgeons to monitor surgical
progress in real-time during tumor removal and other complex procedures. Neuronavigation
allows surgeons the ability to view 3-D renderings of the brain and spinal cord
and track surgical instruments during surgery.
While tumors may be treated through surgical removal, radiation therapy may be necessary
as well. The UF Health Brain Tumor Program offers both traditional radiation and
proton therapy, allowing physicians to tailor treatments that best combat each tumor.
The UF Health Proton Therapy Institute was the first treatment center in the Southeast
U.S. to offer proton therapy, which allows doctors to aim proton beams directly
onto tumors in stronger concentrations than standard radiation treatments. We have
a dedicated 12-bed Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit staffed by specially trained
intensive care physicians (neurointensivists), nurses, and other health care providers
to provide the best care for our patients.
