Mr Nicholas Hall

MBBS BMedSci(Hons) FRACS

Mr Nick Hall is a consultant Neurosurgeon based at the Royal Melbourne Hospital, Melbourne Private Hospital and Geelong Private Hospital. Mr Hall was born and educated in the UK including medical school and basic surgical training. He moved to Melbourne in 2005.

He is dedicated to excellence in patient care and believes that good surgical results are underpinned by detailed patient evaluation, meticulous and precise surgery and careful post-operative care.

Mr Hall has several areas of specific expertise for which he has undertaken advanced level Fellowship training.  This includes skull base and minimally invasive spine surgery for which Mr Hall undertook extensive training at the prestigious Addenbrookes, Cambridge University Hospital, United Kingdom. Mr Hall’s subspecialty expertise thus includes treatment of all skull base tumours including acoustic neuromas, meningiomas and pituitary tumours. He also has a special interest in the treatment of patients with trigeminal neuralgia.

Mr Hall’s subspecialty training in minimally invasive spine surgery offers patients a complete range of surgical treatments for all spine related disease. Minimally invasive spine surgery allows the surgery to be performed through ‘keyhole’ portals without the need for large incisions. Patients are therefore able to mobilise and resume activities comparatively earlier post surgery.

In addition to neurosurgical practise Mr Hall remains engaged in on-going academic activities in both research and teaching. His research areas include the use of stem cells to regenerate cervical inter-vertebral discs. Mr Hall has also published on skull base tumours in both journals and international textbooks.

As well as his areas of subspecialty expertise Mr Hall consults and treats patients with a diverse range of other neurosurgical conditions. Mr Nick Hall sees patients at both Epworth Geelong and Parkville Neurosurgery.
