“Back pain is a functional problem. How can surgery fix a functional problem?  It's like asking a mechanic to fix a car that is being driven by a bad driver.  One is structural, the other is functional.” – Dr David Johnson

Dr David Johnson is a brain and spinal neurosurgeon now practicing at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital. He has had a pioneering role in the establishment of multidisciplinary spinal practices and holistic care for neurosurgical patients.

He has launched three Functional Movement Training Centres in Queensland and now one of the world’s leading in-house hospital facilities at St Andrew’s War Memorial Hospital, having already delivered his NeuroHAB Back Pain Rehabilitation Program successfully to over 500 patients. 

Dr Johnson’s expertise covers a wide range of brain and spinal neurosurgery including low back, sacro-iliac and neck pain management, minimally invasive key hole techniques, neuro-oncology, acute cerebro-vascular surgery, brain and spine trauma, trigeminal neuralgia, pituitary surgery, CSF diversion surgery and pain neurostimulation surgery.
