Faster, Safer Synaptive Neurosurgery

Learn how our exclusive cutting-edge technology gives us the enhanced precision needed to treat your brain tumor.

Personalized Care Tailored to You

You’re one-of-a-kind. It only makes sense that you’d choose a unique treatment program tailored to your physical, mental and spiritual needs. We do everything possible to prioritize your well-being and healing. From leading-edge radiation and chemotherapy treatments to state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating rooms and minimally invasive brain surgery, it’s our goal to heal your brain tumor efficiently with great precision.

Chemotherapy is a type of malignant brain tumor treatment that uses drugs to destroy cancer cells. The chemicals in chemotherapy attack cancer cells by interfering with cell division and stopping or slowing the growth of cancer cells. Sometimes, chemotherapy is the only cancer treatment used. But more often, chemotherapy is used in combination with surgery, radiation therapy or biological therapy.

AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute Tampa is the only hospital in Tampa Bay to acquire Synaptive Medical Inc.’s BrightMatter™ system with the next-generation Modus VTM digital microscope and robotic arm. This advanced visualization and navigation system for complex brain surgery gives neurosurgeons a wider field of view, cleaner images and better angles.

Chemotherapy

Synaptive BrightMatter™

This advanced medical imaging improves surgical outcomes by allowing images to be taken while you are still in the operating room. Thanks to this technology, we ensure the surgery has been successful, minimizing the potential need for a second operation and reducing exposure to radiation in our state-of-the-art neurological suites.

Intraoperative 3T MRI

Faster recovery leading to better outcomes: That’s what you can expect of our minimally invasive surgeries, including Endoscopic Endonasal Skull-Base Surgery and MRI-guided Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy (LITT).

Minimally Invasive Brain Surgery

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy uses high-energy X-rays or other types of radiation to kill tumor cells or keep them from growing. Depending on the type of brain tumor and its location, one of two types of radiation therapy may be recommended in your treatment plan. External radiation therapy uses a source that is outside the body to deliver radiation to the tumor's location. Internal radiation therapy uses a radioactive substance that is sealed inside a needle, wire, catheter or "seeds" and placed directly into or near the brain tumor.
