Private Neurosurgeons in London

Highly specialised brain and spinal surgery

Our pioneering neurosurgical departments provide a complete range of surgical services for the diagnosis, surgical treatment and rehabilitation of all neurological disorders of the brain and spine

What is neurosurgery?

Neurosurgery describes the surgical treatment of conditions affecting the nervous system. This may involve the skull, brain or spine and can range from minimally invasive procedures for back pain to major intracranial surgery for tumours.


Our multidisciplinary team approach includes neurosurgeons, radiologists, neuropathologists, neurophysiologists, neuro-oncologists, ENT and maxillofacial surgeons working together to deliver the most effective treatment.
