About the International Neurosurgery Centre

The International Neurosurgery Centre is an exciting new development at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. The neurosurgery service is provided by a world class team lead by four consultant neurosurgeons. The centre provides the latest imaging and operating department facilities specifically designed for the treatment of children. Patients are cared for in the Harris International Patient Centre at Great Ormond Street Hospital which opened in March 2006 to provide the highest quality facilities.

Our services

The Centre provides multi-disciplinary opinions in:

  • Neuro-oncology

  • Craniofacial Surgery

  • Epilepsy Surgery

  • Spinal Dysraphism

  • Vascular Surgery
We have considerable expertise in minimally invasive techniques such as neuro-endoscopy, image guidance and stereotaxy and are at the forefront in other areas such as craniofacial distraction techniques, vascular anastamoses, spinal and intracranial monitoring.

We currently provide treatment and opinions at a local, national and international level and are actively involved in research to improve surgical treatments and outcomes, with regular presentation of our data at international meetings.

Contact us

As with any specialist service, the different members of our team have areas of particular expertise and it can be difficult sometimes to know who best to contact. By using our central booking number we can ensure that if a child requires specific expertise, the referral will be passed to the appropriate surgeon. Likewise, if an urgent opinion is required on more general matters, we will ensure the child can be seen by someone who will be able to manage the case as soon as possible.
