Patient Services

Overseas Patients

Parkville Neurosurgery is pleased to provide the assessment, investigation, and treatment of patients with conditions of the brain and spine from the Australasian region and around the world. We specialise in brain tumours and intracranial conditions, especially advice regarding 'inoperable' or recurrent, difficult to treat and rare tumours. We are able to provide preliminary opinions based on clinical information and the imaging, without the need for the patient to travel themselves.

We also provide a full spinal consulting and investigation service.

We can help arrange for international travel, accommodation in Melbourne and hospitalization if needed. There are many high quality post-operative recovery and rehabilition services in the Melbourne area if required also. Alernatively, we can facilitate referral and ongoing care in the patient's home country.

We are happy to provide full financial information and informed consent regarding the costs of the treatment before the provision of any major investigations or procedures.
