When you're dealing with complex, often frightening, disorders of the brain or spine — including stroke, multiple sclerosis (MS), and epilepsy — you can feel confident in the ability of the expert neurology team at AdventHealth Altamonte Springs, formerly Florida Hospital Altamonte. We offer some of the most advanced neurological care in Central Florida, including 24/7 interventional neuroradiology coverage to help treat strokes quickly and effectively.
Bringing Together Expertise and Compassion
- Whole-Person Neurology Care
With our dedication to whole-person care, you’ll find a neurology team that’s passionate about caring for you physically, emotionally, and spiritually. At Advent Health Altamonte Springs, we bring together an extended group of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, physicians, and other experts to care for you with unrelenting commitment from the moment you enter our facility. Plus, we supplement that care with educational resources, support groups, and nurturing rehabilitation. Here, you’ll find a winning combination of expertise and compassion to help you heal and recover.
- Quick and Accurate Diagnosis
Gaining a clear understanding of your condition or illness is the first step in getting you on the path back to wellness. After all, neurological issues – from persistent headaches and dizziness to sudden paralysis and difficulty balancing – can make anyone take pause. That’s why we take each symptom seriously, combining our depth of screening resources, extended team of experts, and deep understanding of the nervous system to work quickly and efficiently to give you the answers you need.
We’ll first talk with you, gathering a full picture of your health and of you as a person. Then we may recommend a range of tests – such as MRIs and CT scans – to take a closer look inside your brain. At each step and before each test, we’ll be there to guide you, explain anything complex or potentially confusing, and be as helpful as we can possibly be.
- Advanced Treatments for Your Neurology Care
The most complex system in your body calls for the most advanced care. That’s our specialty. We take a comprehensive and compassionate approach to you, using some of the best tools and the most proven strategies to help treat a range of neurological diseases and conditions. Some can be treated with nonsurgical options, like medications for stroke or physical therapy for spinal stenosis. But for those who need extra support, our highly trained neurological surgeons are here for you.
- A Leader in Stroke Care. Leading the Charge for You.
You’re proactive about your neurological care and wellness. But emergencies can still happen. The NeuroScience Institute Stroke Center at AdventHealth Altamonte Springs is always ready to help diagnose and treat you. From the moment you walk into our facility, your care is our priority. Since time is of the essence, we’ll be sure to move you through screening to treatment quickly and efficiently. And because caring for strokes can extend far beyond your visit, you’ll be supported for the weeks and months to come by our dedicated physical therapy and support groups.
Neurology Services We Offer
Helps people increase mobility and function by using various movements, exercises or electrotherapy
Kyphoplasty and Vertebroplasty
Similar to vertebroplasty, kyphoplasty may be used on patients with compression fractures in the spine. Kyphoplasty offers the potential to restore bone height in the vertebra and reverse deformity of the spine. We offer both treatments, allowing specialists to choose the correct treatment for each patient
Minimally Invasive Surgery
The laparoscopic minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) requires only a small incision in the abdomen. Through this incision, surgeons insert a small tube with a light and camera lens on the end
Surgical removal of the whole or a part of an intervertebral disc
Laminectomy, also called decompression, is surgery to remove the lamina — the back part of the vertebra that covers your spinal canal. Laminectomy enlarges your spinal canal, relieving pressure on the spinal cord or nerves caused by narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis)
Spinal fusion is an open surgical procedure that usually involves cutting into the back to perform the fusion of vertebrae
Conditions We Treat

- Bell's Palsy
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
