Mr O’Brien has expertise in cranial and skull-based tumour resection, complex spinal surgery, management of cranial and spinal trauma and cerebrovascular aneurysm clipping/management.

Brendan is a balanced advocate of artificial disc replacement solutions versus keyhole surgery or appropriate spinal fusion. He has extensive experience in these areas along with other minimally invasive reconstructive spinal therapies for degenerative, traumatic or neoplastic spinal conditions.
A peripheral nerve is any nerve that is outside the brain and spinal cord. If a peripheral nerve becomes damaged and does not heal well, surgery may be the only treatment option for instance carpal tunnel syndrome for the median nerve or cubital tunnel syndrome at the elbow for the ulnar nerve.
During your consultation, it is a priority of Mr O’Brien to thoroughly explain and outline all of the treatment and management options relative to your particular case. Brendan will encourage you to take part in voicing all of your questions and concerns.
Mr O’Brien has access to any of the radiology and pathology clinics across Victoria and Australia. This allows in depth, efficient and real-time access to your results and reporting as required.
