The London Neurosurgery

Partnership

The London Neurosurgery Partnership

is a unique concept in the provision of

neurosurgical care. Comprised of a team

of eight Consultant Neurosurgeons all of

whom are recognised super-specialists

in their area of expertise, the aim is to

ensure that every patient seen by the

group is matched with the Consultant

Neurosurgeon with the best training and

expertise to deliver the individualised

and state-of-the-art care each patient

deserves.

Working as a team also ensures

that patients can access high quality

neurosurgical care at all times, from a

Consultant who will be familiar with their

treatment plan, at a location convenient

to the patient.When appropriate, advice

and treatment is delivered by a team of

Consultants.

The London Neurosurgery Partnership

has access to all of the latest neurosurgical

technologies including the CyberKnife

©

and Gamma Knife

for radiosurgery;

which allow conventional open surgery

to be omitted completely in some cases,

and minimally invasive techniques for both

Cranial and Spinal Neurosurgery when

this is not possible. A key aspect of making

use of such cutting edge technologies is

the decision making process involved.This

is best achieved by a group of clinicians

who are used to working together as a

team, to ensure that the latest technology

and techniques are used appropriately,

based on the latest clinical guidelines.
