In Dr Pope's neurosurgery practice, we abide by the core principles of Beneficence (Doing good), and Non-maleficence (Doing no harm). We believe in the principle of Autonomy (letting the patient make the decision once fully informed), and we strive to guide the patient to make the best decision in their best interests.

We Endeavour to provide the very best of Healthcare in diagnosing, evaluating, investigating and treating each and every patient.

We use technologically advanced methods and modalities to maximize benefit. We believe in educating patients about their conditions to optimize the decision-making and treatment processes.

Our aim is to provide a service where we listen, evaluate and then offer recommendations for investigation and treatment.
