Dr Michael Bryant is a neurosurgeon, specialising in conditions involving the brain and spine. He has been associated with BrizBrain & Spine since its foundation in 2005 and has now made the move to the Sunshine Coast to bring his experience to the local community.
Dr Bryant completed his undergraduate medical training at the University of Queensland in 1997. With his interest in the area increasing, he undertook advanced neurosurgical training at the Royal Brisbane Hospital and Royal Adelaide Hospitals from 2003 to 2007.
During his years of broad neurosurgical exposure, Dr Bryant undertook a year of research at the Queensland Institute of Medical Research, furthering his knowledge of brain tumour behaviour and treatments.
Following this research, Dr Bryant was made a Neuro-Spinal Fellow in 2008 at the Flinders Medical Centre Adelaide, working in the busy and ever-expanding Spinal Unit. During this time, he also worked in the highly regarded Royal Adelaide Hospital Spinal Unit – a widely sought after training opportunity for neurosurgeons and orthopaedic surgeons from around the world, giving Dr Bryant exposure to all aspects of spinal surgery.
Dr Bryant has special clinical interests in:
- Spinal surgery, particularly complex spinal surgery
- Congenital and deformity spinal surgery
- General Neurosurgery
- Spinal trauma
As a member of the Sunshine Coast Brain & Spine team, he aims to bring a new perspective while advancing his skills in all areas of neurosurgery and spinal surgery.
