Tampa General & USF Health unveil next generation neurosurgery procedure

by The 100 Companies

This month, TGH adopted a brand new, minimally invasive procedure to treat those suffering from debilitating neurological disorders like essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease.

TGH is the first in the region to use the FDA-approved procedure called Focused Ultrasound.

The treatment helps improve tremors of the hand by targeting high-intensity Focused Ultrasound beams guided by an MRI machine. It doesn’t require anesthesia or surgical opening of the skull.

“This is a component of our dedication to providing critical, personal care at the highest level, anywhere in the country,”  said Dr. Donald Smith , associate professor at USF Health and TGH neurosurgeon.
