- Cranial surgery - The team is positioned to commence with leading neurosurgical equipment, including computerised microscopes, 3D integrative imaging technology, and prototype ultrasonic tumour-removal devices.
- Cerebral angiography - Now available and supported by the best biplane machine available. It can produce ultrahigh resolution 3D images to help with the diagnosis and treatment of aneurysms and other complex vascular pathologies.
- Latest technology - Surgeons can facilitate unprecedented accuracy in cranial and spinal surgery. Technologies include the latest generation O-arm and S8 Medtronic stealth station to help achieve the best possible surgical and neurological outcomes.
