Brain and Pituitary
Tumour Surgery


Dr Jonker has a particular interest and expertise in brain and pituitary tumour surgery. He uses techniques at the forefront of medical technology, including awake craniotomy and intraoperative
MRI-guided resection.

Stereotactic Radiosurgery


Dr Jonker is the lead neurosurgeon for the Stereotactic Radiosurgery programme at the LIfehouse at RPA, Sydney. This is a precise and minimally invasive technique developed by neurosurgeons to treat brain tumours, trigeminal neuralgia and AVM's using highly focussed radiation delivered precisely to the tumour.

Deep Brain
Stimulation


This life changing surgery treats the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease and other movement disorders, providing significant improvement to patient quality of life. Dr Jonker is the lead neurosurgeon for the
St Vincent's DBS programme.

MRI Guided Focussed Ultrasound


This incisionless procedure results in the reduction or elimination of tremor for sufferers of Essential Tremor, Dystonia and Parkinson's disease. It is a new technology which utilises more than 1000 individual ultrasound beams to target the problem area. Dr Jonker is currently the only neurosurgeon in Australia to offer this treatment.
