Functional Neurosurgery

Learn more about Functional Neurosurgery from Dr. Harry van Loveren

Functional Neurosurgery refers to chronic neurological disorders that interrupt a person's day-to-day function or abilities. This broad term can refer to a number of conditions, including chronic pain and movement disorders such as:

  • Parkinson's disease
  • Tremors
  • Spasticity, a condition in which a person’s muscles remain continuously contracted
  • Epilepsy 

USF Health neurosurgeons work closely with the USF Health Movement Disorders Clinic and the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program, both within the USF Department of Neurology, as well as Neuropsychology, to provide comprehensive patient care, including surgical treatment options when appropriate.
