Who we are

Sydney Brain Tumour Clinic was established in 2013 to provide a convenient service for patients with a brain tumour to seek further advice on their management and care. Based on the North Shore Campus in Sydney the service has been delivering care at multiple treatment centres across Sydney and the Central Coast.

In August 2021 the Sydney Brain Tumour Clinic was expanded and moved to a new home within GenesisCare, North Shore. This dedicated clinic will concentrate resources for management of brain tumours, collaborating with multiple referring neurosurgeons across NSW.
