Leading Team of Neurosurgeons across NSW

Macquarie Neurosurgery is one of Australia’s largest academic neurosurgery groups. It includes nine neurosurgeons who are dedicated to not only perfecting their clinical and neurosurgical skills, but also educating future neurosurgeons and leading breakthrough research. With subspecialty interests in vascular neurosurgery, complex spine surgery, tumour surgery, and syringomyelia and Chiari malformation you can be confident you will be seen by a specialist in the field. We have a collaborative approach to patient care. We hold regular multidisciplinary meetings where various specialists discuss your case and consider possible alternatives and make an informed decision as to how best to manage your condition.

Working at Macquarie University Hospital, we have access to the latest technology from intraoperative scans and high-resolution neurosurgical microscopes, to state-of-the-art imaging and the revolutionary Gamma Knife.

We welcome referrals for patient consultation or for opinions at our multi-disciplinary team meetings in cerebrovascular, neurooncology and pituitary disorders. 

We are dedicated to providing accessible neurosurgical care for everyone; this means we have 12 clinic locations around NSW. Our neurosurgeons travel to these regional clinics to provide our patient’s access to a specialist in a way that is more convenient to you.

With a neurosurgeon on-call 24/7, we pledge to always be available. Our compassionate staff and talented surgeons are committed to providing an excellent patient experience. We will strive to remain leaders in neurosurgical care for you and your family.
