Dr Curtis has been a consultant at North Shore Private and Royal North Shore Hospital since 2007 and Gosford Private Hospital since 2010. He graduated from the University of Sydney in 1996 and obtained his fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS Neurosurgery) in 2004. He then continued with an advanced cerebrovascular and endovascular international fellowship at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute and Swedish Science Foundation in Seattle, USA, where he was mentored by internationally renowned neurosurgeons and interventional radiologists: Dr Marc Mayberg, Dr David Newell and Dr Joseph Eskridge. The fellowship covered the full range of adult neurosurgical conditions, with special focus on open vascular and endovascular techniques, complex spine and skull base work.
Dr Curtis is delighted to be servicing Northern Sydney and the Central Coast as a consultant neurosurgeon, having grown up on the Central Coast and having spent the majority of his training in Sydney and Newcastle. In addition to his local patients, Dr Curtis is also privileged to service a number of out-of-town and international patients. The highest emphasis for Dr Curtis is in always trying to achieve the best possible outcome for the individual patient, through risk minimisation and a well thought out management strategy. His dual training in conventional neurosurgery and newer minimally invasive techniques enables him to consider a broader spectrum of treatment options. It is his hope that his practice be known for personalised service, excellence and innovation.
