About

A/Prof. Augusto (Gus) Gonzalvo specialises in Spinal, Skull Base, and Pituitary Surgery. With over 15 years experience in both neurosurgery and spine surgery, he believes that reasonable treatment options backed by science and evidencebased medicine are the driving force behind delivering positive and realistic patient outcomes. As one of Australia's few surgeons that hold both neurosurgery and orthopaedic spine surgery fellowships, his area of expertise is predominantly focused on microsurgery and keyhole surgery of the spine, base of the skull and pituitary area.While surgery is a possible outcome, 80 per cent of patients will not need operative surgery and treatment options that range anywhere from physical therapy or image-guided intervention to infiltrate nerves is a highly likely outcome post consultation.Treatment is tailored specifically to patient needs and based on proven scientific evidence, following a process that examines medical history and diagnosis, where patients are thoroughly informed on pathways that can help multiple conditions.
