Precision Neurosurgery is a superspecialised neurosurgery and spinal surgery practice providing expertise in the treatment of a wide range of brain, spine, and other neurological disorders.
Each neurosurgeon and spine surgeon at Precision Neurosurgery is highly trained and possesses both clinical and academic qualifications of the highest standard.
Our brain and spine surgeons utilise evidence-based scientific and clinical knowledge, considered judgement, refined surgical techniques, and state-of-the-art technology to give patients access to leading edge care. Our aim is to give you the best possible outcome with the lowest risk.
Our modern approach is firmly underpinned by the principles of compassion, humanity and ethics.
In many other neurosurgery and spinal surgery practices, you will be treated by the same neurosurgeon irrespective of your particular condition and needs- this is because there may be no other surgeon in that practice with particular expertise in a certain operation or illness. This is not the case at Precision Neurosurgery. We have assembled a team of experts in order that patients with uncommon conditions or particularly specialised requirements can be cared for by the most appropriate specialist.
We believe that having a group of neurosurgeons and spinal surgeons with specific areas of subspecialisation, complementary skills, and a willingness to work together facilitates optimal patient care.
Areas of Expertise
Our surgeons possess expertise in a number of areas, including the surgical treatment of:
- Brain tumours
- Spinal conditions (neck pain, back pain, sciatica, brachialgia, disc prolapse)
- Parkinson's disease, Tremor, Dystonia and other movement disorders
- Peripheral nerve syndromes
- Brain and spinal trauma
- Depression and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Tourette's Syndrome
What are our goals at Precision Neurosurgery?
At Precision Neurosurgery, the goal of our Melbourne-based Neurosurgeons is to accurately diagnose your condition and come up with the best treatment options to:
- reduce or abolish your pain
- give you back your confidence and independence
- get you back to work
- improve your quality of life
This can usually be accomplished without surgery! Rest assured that, in the event that surgery is required, the majority of operations we perform are keyhole spine or brain surgery. We will offer you advice and treatment of the highest standard, and will ensure that your care before and after surgery is geared towards giving you the best possible outcome.
Why Consult a Neurosurgeon at Precision Neurosurgery?
At Precision Neurosurgery, we offer an integrated and holistic approach to you and your condition.
Most patients referred to a neurosurgeon or spinal surgeon ultimately don’t need spinal surgery or brain surgery- what they usually need is to establish the cause of their problem, a comprehensive treatment plan, and some good advice. They often also need the involvement of other specialists, such as physiotherapists, pain specialists, neurologists, psychologists and exercise physiologists.
Our neurosurgeons work with a group of other specialists with expertise and skill in different areas, such as neurology, pain medicine, and physiotherapy.
This approach allows us to treat spinal problems (including back pain, neck pain and sciatica), and brain conditions (including brain tumours, Chiari malformations and trigeminal neuralgia), as well as conditions causing chronic pain, in a more systematic and thorough fashion.
By providing multiple consulting locations, you can see a neurosurgeon at one of our Melbourne neurosurgery clinics, or in one of our regional or interstate facilities.
How is Precision Neurosurgery different?
At Precision Neurosurgery, we have a team of neurosurgeons and other experts ready and willing to become involved in your care. We have a highly specialised team who complement each other’s strengths, and who have training, qualifications, and experience of the highest level.
Instead of being sent from one specialist to another, or from one part of town to the other, at Precision you often have the opportunity to continue your treatment:
- in the same facility (in one of our Melbourne neurosurgery clinic locations)
- with specialists who see and talk to each other on a regular basis
- with your medical records centralised for easy access by all members of your treating team
This saves you time, reduces the risk of either slipping through the cracks or having a communication breakdown between the different specialists, and gives you peace of mind that you are receiving care of the highest standard.
Remember, at Precision Neurosurgery you’re not just a patient, you’re someone we care about!
What are the advantages of an integrated approach?
There are a number of advantages of the approach that we have developed at Precision Neurosurgery and our associated clinics Precision Spine & Pain Clinic, Precision Neurology, and Precision Psychology.
Rather than recommending treatment based on the skills and training of one practitioner, we have a broad range of strategies at our disposal, and aim to offer you treatment which is tailored to your specific situation.
This means that you are less likely to have to keep going from one specialist to the next, searching for answers and treatment.
By seeing one of our neurosurgeons in Melbourne, regional Victoria, Tasmania, or New South Wales, you automatically gain priority access to advice and treatment from a number of our other specialists. It also means we are likely to be able to schedule priority appointments for you, rather than having to wait several months between each appointment.
