Dr Jason McMillen is a Neurosurgeon who completed his neurosurgery speciality Fellowship training in Australia, before electing to train further in a subspeciality fellowship in cerebrovascular surgery in Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, United Kingdom.  He has cultivated an interest in the management of spinal conditions with minimally invasive keyhole surgery, and has published academic papers in the scientific literature on these techniques.

Dr McMillen has continued to work with his colleagues to develop keyhole surgical approaches to the spine, and he has extensive experience with utilising these techniques with the latest technologies in instruments, implants, computer assisted intraoperative navigation, and imaging.  He and other surgeons at the Keyhole Spine Centre have closely collaborated in developing novel techniques and equipment in this field.  Dr McMillen utilises minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques for most of his surgical interventions.

Dr McMillen has appointments at the Mater Centre for Neurosciences as well as the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital.  He is actively involved in training neurosurgical trainees, as well as other neurosurgeons wanting to learn minimally invasive spinal surgery.  He is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland School of Medicine.

Dr McMillen utilises minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques to achieve positive outcomes for his patients, reducing his patients’ pain from surgical tissue damage, and optimising their recovery and return to function.
