The Neurosurgery Department provides a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient neurosurgical service, treating the full range of intracranial, spinal and peripheral nerve disorders.
The Unit treats around 1,750 inpatients annually with around 50% being elective and 50% emergency. Trauma accounts for approximately 35% of the caseload. We have a very busy outpatient clinic, seeing 2,335 outpatients per year.
The Department has developed sub-specialty interests in cerebrovascular surgery, spine surgery, skull base surgery, pituitary surgery, and neurotrauma.
We are committed to providing excellence in neurosurgical care through quality management, education and training of health care professionals in clinical and laboratory research.
We also have an ongoing commitment to enhancing our links with other PMGH departments, general practitioners and outside institutions.
