Miami, FL—December 6, 2011—In a bold move to expand its healthcare offerings, Larkin Community Hospital is adding Aizik L. Wolf, MD, a pioneer in Gamma Knife surgery, to its medical team, effective January, 2012. It is also building state-of-the-art facilities for the Miami Neuroscience Center, whose staff and program move with Dr. Wolf to Larkin. The center opens on the hospital’s South Miami campus on January 3, 2012.
Larkin has taken significant steps to broaden its healthcare mandate and strengthen its service offerings. For the past two years, the hospital has advanced its goal of becoming a leader in post-graduate medical education by obtaining accreditation for several residency programs including Internal Medicine, Family Medicine, Psychiatry, Neurology, Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine, Ophthalmology and Endocrinology. Today, it establishes itself as a leader in neurosurgery by partnering with Dr. Wolf and the Miami Neuroscience Center. The new center will feature state-of-the-art imaging tools such as MRI, PET and CT, as well as Perfexion, the latest generation of Gamma Knife technology.
