Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery (MIBS)

Constant innovation means we can bring you exclusive techniques not found anywhere else in our region, such as Gamma Knife® technology. These minimally invasive techniques reduce the risks of surgery, require minimal or no incision and improve results.

Depending on the specifics of your condition, our specialists might talk to you about a number of minimally invasive procedure options, including:

  • Brain Port Surgery
  • Endoscopic Brain Surgery
  • Endoscopic Endonasal Skull-Base Surgery
  • Endoscopic Microvascular Decompression
  • Gamma Knife®
  • Neuroendovascular Surgery
  • Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT)

Each of these procedures can help reduce pain, scarring and damage to surrounding tissue, all while promoting faster recovery.

Gamma Knife®

AdventHealth is the only medical facility in Central Florida using this innovative, no-incision procedure. Gamma Knife® is the most accurate technology device and is considered the gold standard in the radiosurgical management of brain disease.

It targets and treats tumors with millimeter precision, minimizing damage to surrounding tissue and resulting in less scarring and pain, and faster recovery times. Patients normally resume their daily activities within 24 to 48 hours.

Our multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, physicists and radiation oncologists have performed more than 3,600 procedures, making us one of the busiest and most experienced Gamma Knife programs in the country.

Radiation & Chemotherapy

Radiation and chemotherapy are often used as primary treatments for certain cancer types. When it comes to treating a brain tumor, there’s a bit more to determining whether either of these treatments might be effective for you.

If the tumor can’t be fully or partially removed, radiation therapy may be the best option. And even though it won’t actually remove the tumor, radiation can cause the tumor cells to die and shrink.

Chemotherapy is typically most effective as a follow-up to surgery or radiation therapy. It can also be used to help patients who have recurrent or slowly progressing tumors.

Our expert physicians at the AdventHealth Cancer Institute will help you determine if these approaches would be indicated for your treatment plan.

Intraoperative MRI

Advanced medical imaging that improves surgical outcomes by allowing images to be taken of the brain during surgery. The real-time imagery provides the surgeon with an increased ability to achieve complete tumor and other abnormality removal.

Care Every Step of the Way

Your path to healing continues well beyond initial diagnosis and treatment, and so does our support. A world-class team of physical, occupational and speech therapists is here to help you rebuild and maintain strength, improve motor and cognitive skills, and even learn new ways to perform everyday tasks more easily. Through each new challenge and triumph, we’re here for you and your loved ones, dedicated to your whole recovery.
