What is a Neurosurgeon?

Neurosurgeons are medical doctors who

specialise in surgical treatment of patients

with neurological conditions.

Their specialty training includes diagnosis

and treatment of disorders of the brain, 

spine, spinal cord, nerves as well as the blood vessels of the brain and spinal cord.

All of our Neurosurgeons have completed Australian postgraduate qualifications in Neurosurgery as well as additional sub-specialty Fellowship training overseas.

Patients are usually referred to a Neurosurgeon to determine whether surgery would be an appropriate treatment option for their symptoms.
