Specialist Neurosurgeon

Dr Sudhir Dookie works with the entire nervous system that starts in your brain, runs through your spine, and branches out to all areas of your body. Often, pain that you feel is travelling through the nervous system.

Neurosurgeons treat many painful conditions, such as low back pain, sciatica, pinched nerves and chronic pain. These conditions may manifest itself in one place but appear in another.

Most people think of neurosurgeons as doctors performing complex surgery. While it’s true that neurosurgeons can perform complicated surgical procedures in the spine and brain, it’s often non-surgical or conservative care that is prescribed.
