segregate the file based on matching patterns

print 'test'
create proc abc
/Some code here/
print 'test1'
Create Procedure xyz
/some code here/
print 'test2'

now i want to create two files(with the proc names) out of it

i need to cut the line from the first appeareance of "create" and before the first appeareance of "go"
and name the each file with the procedure name

so the two files will have the data

abc.txt will have
create proc abc
/Some code here/

xyz.txt will have
Create Procedure xyz
/some code here/

please advise on this issue
