Dr Terry Coyne OAM

OAM, MBBS, FRACS

 

A founding member of BrizBrain & Spine, Dr Terry Coyne is a neurosurgeon with specialist skills in brain and spinal surgery. He obtained his medical degree from the University of Queensland in 1983 and finished training as a specialist neurosurgeon in 1991, having worked at the Townsville, Royal Brisbane and Princess Alexandra Hospitals.

Dr Coyne continued his neurosurgical training, spending two years completing a post-graduate Fellowship at the University of Toronto, Canada. He returned to Brisbane in 1994 to commence an appointment as a Visiting Medical Officer (Neurosurgeon) at the Royal Brisbane and Royal Children’s Hospitals. He also commenced in private practice at that time.

After 11 years of combined public hospital and private practice, Dr Coyne is now in full-time private practice with BrizBrain & Spine.

His practice covers a broad range of adult neurosurgery, with particular interest in  functional neurosurgery used to treat movement disorders, including Deep Brain Stimulation (performed in conjunction with neurologist Professor Peter Silburn).

Dr Coyne was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM), as part of the Queen’s Birthday honours in June 2017. The medal, bestowed for ‘service worthy of particular recognition’ recognises Assoc. Prof Coyne for his services to medicine as a neurosurgeon.

Dr Coyne is the continental vice-president for Oceania/Australia for the World Society of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery and a Board Member on the Asian-Australasian Society of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery. He is an associate professor at the University of Queensland where he helps lead the Asia-Pacific Centre for Neuromodulation (APCN).

Dr Coyne is also an Associate Professor Faculty Medicine at Griffith University and Bond University.

DBS for Parkinsons: Current scientific and clinical status

Abstract There is currently no cure for Parkinson disease (PD). Disease management is directed primarily at motor symptom relief, but the impact of non-motor symptoms associated with PD should not be underestimated. Medical and surgical treatment options aim to increase functional independence and quality of life. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) has proven to be a safe, effective and cost-efficient surgical treatment option. In 2009, the Australian referral guidelines, developed to […]
