Conditions and disorders:

We provide expert care across nerve and spinal disorders.

The peripheral nervous system connects the brain and spine (central nervous system) to the body. Peripheral nerves can be affected by pressure, injury or growths (usually benign), leading to symptoms including pain, tingling and movement difficulties. Surgery aims to relieve symptoms and restore function.

Our specialists perform procedures to treat spinal conditions including compressed or ‘pinched’ spinal nerves, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, trauma, deformities like scoliosis and tumours.

Neuro and spine surgery

Our specialists use the latest technology to manage conditions affecting the spine and perform many procedures including:

  • Cervical discectomy (fusion and disc replacement arthroplasty)
  • Lumbar decompression for canal stenosis (minimally invasive and open)
  • Lumbar discectomy (minimally invasive and open), including day-case surgery
  • Lumbar fusion (minimally invasive and open)
  • Minimally invasive spine surgery.

Care after surgery

We provide comprehensive quality care. Following surgery, you will be cared for on a dedicated ward by experienced nursing staff who are skilled in spinal and neuro surgeries and who will arrange your physiotherapy, discharge rehabilitation and any other support services you require.


All surgical procedures carry some amount of risk and only a specialist can advise whether surgery is right for you. Before agreeing to any treatment, make sure you understand what’s involved and any possible side effects and risks. It’s vital that you seek specialist medical advice that’s right for your circumstances.

How much will it cost?

Surgeries and treatments performed in a private hospital involve an out-of-pocket fee. The amount will depend on the surgery or treatment you have and - where you have private health fund cover - whether the treatment that is right for you, is included in that cover. Your specialist will be able to give you an indication of out-of-pocket costs.

If you don’t have private health insurance or you’re an overseas patient, you can choose to self-fund your surgery. Your specialist can talk to you about this option.
