The Neurosurgery Centre

As one of the first neurosurgery centres in the UK’s private sector, our centre has continued to push the boundaries of complex intracranial neurosurgery for the past 40 years.

Set up in 1978 by pioneering neurosurgeon Professor Alan Crockard, the centre now forms one of the most established in the UK's private sector. With over 10 leading neurosurgeons, all of whom have a well established reputation in the field, alongside an wider team of neurologists, oncologists, neuroradiologists, clinical nurse specialists, physiotherapists, and more, we provide a multidisciplinary approach to each patient's individual needs.

State-of-the-art intraoperative MRI for neurosurgery

As part of HCA Healthcare UK’s continued investment in the latest medical technology, The Wellington Hospital’s Neurosurgery Centre is now equipped with an intraoperative magnetic resonance imaging (iMRI) scanner and fully integrated digital theatre.

The iMRI scanner allows surgeons to carry out an intraoperative MRI scan of their patient’s brain during their surgery. This gives the surgeon confidence that they have achieved their treatment goal. It also provides our patients with the best possible chance of tumours being removed fully without the need for further surgery.
