What we treat

Listed below are common conditions that we treat, although our diverse team treat all neurological and brain conditions.
Please contact us for more information about your condition.

Brain surgery is employed to diagnose, treat, and manage various conditions affecting the brain and its associated structures.

Brain tumours are fortunately fairly rare. There are over 100 different types of brain tumour,  but there are only a few are most common.

Cerebrovascular conditions we treat include Brain aneurysms and Brain AVM. A brain aneurysm is a weak area in the wall of a blood vessel in the brain that can balloon out and potentially rupture, causing bleeding in the brain. An arteriovenous malformation (AVM) is a congenital (present at birth) tangle of blood vessels in the brain that can disrupt normal blood flow and cause bleeding.

A craniotomy is a surgical procedure in which a portion of the skull is removed to access the brain.

Hydrocephalus literally means “water on the brain” and refers to conditions where there is an abnormal build up of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in or around the brain. About 750ml of CSF is normally produced inside the brain per day.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery, also known as MIS, is any minimally invasive procedure that targets conditions specifically within the spine through the use of small incisions as opposed to traditional open-spine surgery which typically requires a 5-6 inch incision. MIS surgery reduces damage to the adjacent tissues, meaning less post operative pain and faster recovery times.

Neurosurgery is a surgical specialty that focuses on the treatment of conditions affecting the nervous system, including the brain, spinal cord, and nerves.

Carpal tunnel syndrome

Peripheral Nerve Surgery for Carpal tunnel syndrome and Cubital tunnel syndrome. Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes compressed at the wrist. Cubital tunnel syndrome, also known as ulnar neuropathy, is a condition characterized by compression or irritation of the ulnar nerve as it passes through the cubital tunnel.

Other brain conditions we treat include: Chiari malformation, Trigeminal neuralgia and Hydrocephalus.

Spinal Neurosurgery procedures we offer include: Discectomy, Spinal fusion surgery and Minimally invasive spine surgery.

Spine Conditions

The human spine is an amazing structure – its supports us throughout our lives with strength and flexibility. Unfortunately, it also is one of most common areas in the body to wear out and cause pain and dysfunction.

Spinal surgery is a procedure to treat conditions affecting the spinal column and its surrounding structures.

Trigeminal neuralgia

Trigeminal neuralgia (also called tic douloureux) is a condition which causes sharp shooting pain on one side of the face, due to irritation of the Trigeminal (fifth) cranial nerve.

Cubital tunnel syndrome can cause an aching pain on the inside of the elbow. Most of the symptoms, however, occur in your hand. Sleeping with your elbow bent can aggravate symptoms. Numbness and tingling in the ring finger and little finger are common symptoms of ulnar nerve entrapment.

The Gamma Knife is a type of radiation therapy used to treat brain disorders, including brain tumours, functional disorders (e.g., trigeminal neuralgia), and other conditions that require precise radiation targeting.
