How we help

We specialise in:
  • Spinal neurosurgery including neural decompressions, spinal fusions, and surgery for spinal tumours.
  • Cranial neurosurgery for brain tumours including pituitary tumours, primary brain tumours, and metastases.
  • Vascular neurosurgery including intracranial aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations (AVMs), and spinal vascular malformations.
  • CSF circulation disorders including hydrocephalus and Chiari malformations.
  • Surgery for trigeminal neuralgia.

To ensure that the best options are offered to our patients we undertake multidisciplinary review of complex conditions and collaborate closely with our colleagues in other specialties including:

  • ENT (otololaryngology)
  • Oncology
  • Neuroradiology
  • Plastics
  • Craniofacial
  • Endocrinology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Intensive Care
  • Anaesthetics
  • Pathology
  • Rheumatology
  • Pain Medicine.

We take a personalised approach to all our consultations and make a plan to suit your situation. Surgery is not always required for the conditions we treat and we counsel our patients on the best available options.  When surgery is required we carefully guide our patients through the process, the risks and benefits, and what to expect in terms of recovery.

The Wellington Brain and Spine Group provide private care at Wakefield Hospital. Consultations are available in person and via telehealth.
