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.

Featured Clinical Trials

ZX008

Icon for trial | ZX008

This study is currently enrolling.

The main purpose of this study is to learn if and how well the study drug works and if the study drug is safe and tolerable compared to placebo in children and adults with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome. A placebo is an inactive mater ...

LAANTERN

This study is currently enrolling.

This registry is post-market multi-center designed to collect medical history, procedure, and follow-up information on patients that are already scheduled to be treated with NeuroBlate System in observational manner. The purpos ...

OXIPLEX

Icon for trial | OXIPLEX

This study is currently enrolling.

Oxiplex gel is an investigational device, meaning it is not approved in the U.S. by the FDA. Oxiplex may help prevent some of the side effects that can occur after your lumbar spine surgery, such as residual leg pain, back pain ...

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.
