Neurosurgery is carried out on the brain and spinal cord to treat conditions such as brain tumours and spinal cord compression.


Neurosurgery is one of the most complex and intricate forms of surgery, requiring dedicated skill and extensive training.

Our neurosurgeons are expert and approachable, sub-specialising in their areas of neurosurgery and gaining exceptional depth of knowledge.

We treat a wide range of complex conditions at Cromwell Hospital, from epilepsy to blood vessel surgery in the brain.

Each case is reviewed by a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, neurologists and highly trained specialist staff to give you the best possible care.

We continually invest in the latest technology at Cromwell Hospital, and our surgeons use a range of specialist techniques.

Innovation, such as Gamma Knife radio surgery, means we can use a minimal access approach when removing benign and cancerous brain tumours.

Other advances include deep brain stimulation, which uses computer navigation to treat movement disorders, and endoscopic techniques to remove pituatory tumours.

Our neurosurgeons also carry out microsurgery, used during highly intricate procedures, where microscopic equipment allows the surgeon to make the finest of movements.
