Comprehensive spine services are an important part of The Neuroscience Center. Our high volume, award-winning program includes the following:
- Minimally-invasive Spinal Fusion
- Lumbar Fusion
- SI Joint Fusion
- Anterior and Posterior Cervical Fusion
- Cervical Arthroplasty (Disc Replacement)
- Lumbar Microdiscectomy
- Spinal Cord Stimulation
- Insertion of Pain Pumps
Board-certified Neurosurgeons Eric Scott, MD, John Stevenson, MD, Steven Reid, MD and Steven Bailey, MD play a critical role in The Neuroscience Center of North Florida Regional Healthcare. Spine Surgeons Michael MacMillan, MD and Troy Trimble, MD are also a part of the Neuroscience Center.
Four operating rooms at North Florida Regional Medical Center are designated primarily for neurosurgical procedures. Staff who are part of the neurosurgical team include Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Circulating Nurses, OR Assistants and Surgical Scrub Techs. Neurosurgical Line Supervisor Lori Carlton is surrounded in the photo above by the team she guides.
North Florida Regional has invested significantly in advanced technology used by neurosurgeons. That technology includes the O-Arm, a system that gives surgeons quick, mid-procedure access to high-resolution images that improve accuracy and reduce the chances patients may need to undergo a revision procedure.
North Florida Regional invested in Medtronic’s StealthStation® S7™ neuronavigation system, which provides advanced mapping technology for spine and cranial procedures. Other examples of advanced technology include the Jackson Table and Andrews Table to incorporate the benefits of patient positioning and Leica Neurosurgical Microscopes for microsurgery. Intraoperative Neuromonitoring and Neurophysiology are also available when appropriate for patients.
