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.

  • Spinal disc surgery

    Need to know

Selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) cuts selected nerve roots in the spinal cord to reduce stiffness.

As a state-of-the-art piece of equipment it allows a consultant to direct radiation beams to specific areas within a patient's head without...

  • CyberKnife treatment

    Need to know

    CyberKnife® delivers multiple beams of high-dose radiation to tumours with incredible accuracy. Unlike traditional surgery, treatment is given as an outpatient procedure with little or no recovery time, meaning you can get back to your usual routine faster.

What is Gamma Knife?

In this video, Mr Ian Sabin explains how Gamma Knife works and what treatments it can be used to treat at The London Gamma Knife Centre.
