Patient Testimonials

Marine Geologist Quickly Resumes Active Life After Minimally Invasive Spinal Surgery at Miami Neuroscience Institute
Pam Reid, a marine geologist & professor at the University of Miami, is a very active 72-year-old, traveling to such locations as the Atacama Desert of northern Chile and Shark Bay in western Australia.

But about two years ago, she was told she needed spine surgery, mostly resulting from severe spinal stenosis & spondylosis, conditions that cause degenerative narrowing of the spinal nerves. At first, Ms. Reid did not want to move forward with surgery because it would derail much of her work and travel.
"They Took Great Care of Me"

Leilani Pearl, 44, was otherwise healthy when the pandemic started last year, but it wasn’t COVID-19 that would cause her life to take a very startling turn — and into the hands of a team at Miami Neuroscience Institute led by a prominent neurosurgeon.

Former Olympic Rower, 76, Rebounds from Sudden Stroke
It was 50 years ago when Lawrence “Monk” Terry, now 76 and a resident of Coral Gables, won a silver medal with the U.S. rowing team at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany. He served as the “stroke” on his crew. That’s the rowing term for the most important position, the one that sets the pace for the rest of the rowers.
Minimally Invasive 'HiFU' Beat Her Essential Tremor
Life with “essential tremor” — one of the most common movement disorders — is disruptive and debilitating. So much that just handling a glass of water is a challenging task. Nan Levy knows all about it. She had been dealing with her tremor for at least 12 years.
Upcoming Projects
Clinical Trial Explores Radiation Therapy as Protective Treatment Against High-Risk Spine Metasteses
A research team at Baptist Health South Florida recently began enrollment in a randomized-controlled clinical trial exploring early radiation therapy as a prophylactic treatment for patients with asymptomatic or minimally symptomatic high-risk metastatic disease to the spine.

New Clinical Trial Underway for Alzheimer's Patients

Baptist Health Miami Neuroscience Institute and Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine are collaborating to offer a new clinical trial for patients with Alzheimer’s disease. The study uses low-intensity focused ultrasound to disrupt brain changes that lead to the neuron damage that causes memory and cognition problems in patients.


The Joint Commission
Miami Neuroscience Institute is accredited by The Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center—the highest level of specialized stroke care. The Institute, in conjunction with Baptist Hospital, also received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target: StrokeSM Honor Roll Elite Plus, Target: Stroke Advanced Therapy Honor Roll. South Miami and West Kendall Baptist Hospitals received similar awards. The awards recognize the hospital’s commitment to providing the most appropriate stroke treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines grounded in the latest scientific evidence.
