Bio

Dr Richard Parkinson is a Fellowship trained neurosurgeon and minimally invasive spinal surgeon. He has been performing minimally invasive and complex spinal surgery for 18+ years and has built his reputation on his thoughtful and conservative approach to surgery.

He is passionate about the long-term reduction of pain and improved function for patients following surgery, which he achieves through a focus on surgical excellence and technology, and a commitment to the highest standard of after-care rehabilitation.

Dr Parkinson completed his training in neurosurgery in Sydney, Australia and then continued his surgical training in the USA at high-volume advanced surgical centres. He holds USA Surgical Fellowships from the prestigious Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago, completed under the guidance of the internationally recognised luminary neurosurgeons Professor Richard Fessler and Professor Hunt Batjer.
