Research is an important part of medicine and Sunshine Coast Brain & Spine foster research through our close association with the Newro Foundation. The Newro Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation and registered charity seeking to develop new ideas and new research for new hope in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, spinal surgery and the Newro Foundation Logoneurosciences. Through our extensive research and many clinical trials, it is our goal to improve the treatment and post-operative care of patients so that they can return to a normal life as quickly as possible.

The current research activities of the Newro Foundation are wide-ranging. As well as monitoring our treatment outcomes in our current clinical practice, they are also involved in research in many areas of neurosurgical practice.

Our current interests include Lab researchadvances in the treatment of brain tumours, surgical treatment of movement disorders, treatment of spinal conditions including complex spinal surgery and minimal access spinal/keyhole surgery, as well as skull base conditions such as pituitary tumours and acoustic neuromas.
