Neurosurgery

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

Overview

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 teams of neurosurgeons, radiologists, neuropathologists, neurophysiologists, neuro-oncologists, ENT and maxillofacial surgeons work together to deliver the most effective treatment. Our leading-edge diagnostic facilities, operating theatres and intensive care units are fully equipped to offer comprehensive care for even the most complex neurological problems.

Expertise

We combine advanced medical technology with the expertise of our world-class consultants to deliver everything from routine procedures to radiosurgery.

Decompression surgery is a procedure to alleviate the painful symptoms caused by pinched spinal nerves.

  • Spinal disc surgery

    Need to know

    Your spine is made up of a column of bones (vertebrae), separated by spongy discs that act as shock absorbers. These discs can wear out with age or get damaged if you lift heavy things. A slipped disc is a common and painful condition that can be repaired with an endoscopic (keyhole) procedure.

  • CyberKnife treatment
