Neurosurgery is the area of surgery which is performed on the brain and spinal cord.
Surgeons use this type of operation to treat a wide range of conditions including strokes, brain tumours and epilepsy.

We are an internationally renowned private hospital, offering an outstanding level of expertise, state-of-the-art equipment and leading-edge diagnostic and treatment facilities.
You will be taken cared for by our highly trained team of neurosurgeons, each specialising in their own area, but working closely together.
What conditions do Bupa Cromwell Hospital treat with neurosurgery?
There are many different types of neurological disorders which Bupa Cromwell Hospital can treat, including:
- blood vessel blockages causing a stroke, or in the head producing hydrocephalus (build-up of fluid in the brain)
- blood vessel repairs such as removing an aneurysm or arteriovenous malformation (an abnormal connection between arteries and veins)
- brain function improvement to treat epilepsy or movement disorder
- lump removal for tumours, blood clots, pus or disc prolapse
- pain management by cutting a nerve
We use Gamma Knife radio surgery to treat patients with brain tumours.
Gamma Knife is not actually a knife at all - it is a non-invasive device that uses beams of gamma radiation to remove malignant and benign brain tumours. This doesn’t damage the normal brain tissue around the tumour.
This form of treatment can replace the need for surgery for some patients with brain tumours.
How do I pay for treatment?
We welcome both insured and self-pay patients as well as company and embassy sponsored patients.
