Welcoming our new Director of Neurosurgery | Chris O'Brien Lifehouse
 In Lifehouse News

It is with great pleasure that we announce Dr Brindha Shivalingam has been appointed as the Director of Neurosurgery Services at Chris O’Brien Lifehouse.

Brindha describes her philosophy: ” Any ailment that threatens the essence of who we are, is the most frightening of all. I endeavour to be there for my patients, not only as a skilled surgeon in the operating room, but also to support them emotionally through this difficult time in their lives. I believe healing requires the skill and knowledge of the surgeon as well as the determination of the patient. We are therefore partners in this journey.”

Brindha has been a leader in neurosurgical research as well as a senior surgeon at RPA. She has a special interest in Neuro-oncology and skull-base tumour surgery.

When asked why she studied neurosurgery, Brindha explained that she’s always had a fascination for the complexity of the brain. This became clear when she was introduced to neurosurgery as a medical student, stating that she was in awe. “It was my dream and is my passion.”
