Department of Neurology

Our Department members share a common philosophy that the patient is sun (not the doctor). We believe that we should operate as an interdisciplinary health care team, and that we should orbit around the patient and the patient’s needs. 



Department of Surgery

The UF department of surgery provides comprehensive surgical services in a tertiary care setting. Supported by a team of nurses and technicians, UF surgeons average nearly 11,000 operations each year at UF Health Shands facilities in Gainesville, Florida.
