What is Neuroscience?
Neuroscience is a specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of all disorders affecting the entire nervous system, which includes central (brain and spinal cord), peripheral (nerve paths leading from the brain and spinal cord to the body), and autonomic systems (involuntary controls of heart rate, perspiration, salivation, etc.).
This year alone, over 50 million Americans will experience a disorder of the brain, spine or nervous system. Common disorders treated by Florida Hospital include:
- Brain tumors
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Spinal disorders
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Sleep disorders
- Trigeminal neuralgia
- Normal pressure hydrocephalus
- Parkinson’s disease
- Psychiatric conditions
Many brain and spine conditions are treated through innovative minimally invasive approaches at the Florida Hospital Neuroscience Institute.

Advancing Treatment through Clinical Trials
When existing treatment options are unable to remedy a neurological injury or illness, certain patients may be eligible for a clinical trial program, which opens the door for additional options not yet in standard practice. Clinical trials are a set of procedures conducted to test the safety and results of drugs, treatments, devices and therapy protocols. Pharmaceuticals, medical devices, and research registries are used to advance the field of neurological research and provide advanced treatment options for patients.
