The University of Florida Department of Neurology – Jacksonville and the University of Florida Department of Neurosurgery – Jacksonville continues to expand – recruiting new faculty, broadening research, and increasing opportunities to move medicine forward in Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia by providing high-quality patient care.
Yazan Radaideh, MD, MS, an assistant professor in the departments of neurology and neurosurgery is the most recent addition.
Radaideh is an interventional neurologist with specialties in endovascular neurosurgery, neurocritical care and neurology.
“As an interventional neurologist, we use minimally invasive precision techniques to access to blood vessels in the brain and the spinal cord. Our state-of-the-art technologies allows us to provide necessary and lifesaving treatments,” Radaideh said.
He received his medical degree from the University of Jordan and completed residency training at SUNY Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York. Radaideh completed a Neurocritical Care Fellowship and Endovascular Neurosurgery Fellowship at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. While at Rush University, he also received a master’s of science in clinical research.
Radaideh comes from a family of physicians, specifically cardiologists, Radaideh did not see health care as his career path initially. When he did decide to enter the field of medicine, he was drawn to Neurology and the Neurosciences.
As part of the team in Jacksonville, he is focused on building the neuroendovascular services to provide solutions for patients with complex neurological and neurosurgical conditions. Common advantages to these services are more effective and timely therapies with shorter recovery times.
“I am thrilled to be part of the amazing department here at the UF College of Medicine – Jacksonville,” Radaideh said. “This is an established academic program that values its faculty and fosters a collaborative environment. I am glad to meet a need with the services that we provide.”
Ramon Bautista, MD, MBA, professor and chair of the department of neurology is confident Radaideh’s skillset will not only strengthen the program, but will also be a valuable resource for the patient population in Jacksonville and surrounding areas.
“We are excited to have Dr. Radaideh join UF Health Jacksonville as head of neuroendovascular services. He will bring a level of expertise to our organization that will help us achieve our goal of becoming the premier provider of Neurovascular care in Northeast Florida”.
