When you have a neurological condition, you're probably dealing with a lot of pain, not to mention feelings of fear or anxiety — but we can help.

At HCA Florida Orange Park Hospital, our goal is to help you get back to living your best life. As part of that, we offer many diagnostic and treatment services, including surgically implanted radiation therapy, a highly advanced, uncommon treatment for brain cancer. So whether you are dealing with the after effects of a stroke, chronic migraines or a newly diagnosed neurological condition, we'll make sure you get the personalized, effective care you need and deserve.

Our neurological treatments and services

Our skilled neurological experts offer a wide range of noninvasive, minimally invasive and traditional treatments for a range of conditions that affect the nervous system.

Our neurological diagnostic services

Our neurologists use state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, including on-site imaging services, to diagnose conditions and develop personalized treatment plans. The services we offer include:

  • Computerized tomography (CT) scans
  • Electroencephalography (EEG)
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Our neurological treatments

When neurosurgery is recommended, patients can trust our skilled neurosurgeons, who are board-certified by the American Board of Neurological Surgery and have extensive experience providing a wide range of minimally invasive and traditional treatments, including artificial disc replacements.

We also offer noninvasive pain management services and physical therapy and rehabilitation to help patients recover from conditions and surgery.

Brain tumor treatment

We offer a rare treatment available for brain cancer — surgically implanted radiation therapy. In this treatment, the insertion of tiny tiles into the brain helps delay the regrowth of a brain tumor. The small tiles provide targeted radiation, limiting the damage to healthy tissue surrounding the cancer. This unique radiation treatment also reduces side effects such as brain damage or hair loss and the amount of radiation exposure to those close to the patient.

During a tumor removal surgery, the tiles are placed at the tumor site. Similar to the size of a postage stamp, the tiles immediately begin killing cancer cells. The radiation process lasts approximately six weeks and the tiles are naturally resorbed by the body.

Stroke care

Our comprehensive stroke care coordinates dedicated attention from experts specializing in emergency medicine, intensive care and rehabilitation. Our hospital has earned advanced certifications from The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association because our stroke teams provide immediate attention, quick diagnoses and lifesaving stroke treatments.

Spine care

Our orthopedic spine specialists and neurologists work hand-in-hand to provide comprehensive care for injuries and conditions affecting the spine. We offer nonsurgical treatment options, like pain management techniques, and a full range of surgical options, including minimally invasive spine procedures.

Minimally invasive neurological care

Our neurosurgeons specialize in treating patients with minimally invasive surgical procedures.

Benefits of minimally invasive procedures

The benefits of minimally invasive procedures include:

  • Less postoperative pain
  • Less scarring
  • Quicker recoveries
  • Shorter hospital stays
  • Smaller incisions
