World-renowned neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo

Our Physiotherapist, Linda Macintyre, was privileged to have been invited by world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo to observe several operations in the last year.

“Witnessing Charlie and his team at work was nothing short of extraordinary. One operation in particular took over 15 hours, and his tenacity, patience, resolve and compassion were evident every minute of those very delicate hours”.

In Australia, brain cancer kills more children in each year than any other disease, and more people under 40 than any other cancer. Survival rates remain low at 20%, and the goal of Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is to increase the five-year survival rate to 50% by 2023, through advocacy and awareness, research funding, and global collaborations.
