Windhoek Neurosurgical Centre


Windhoek Neurosurgical Centre was established in January 2021 by Dr Michael Jario. Under the motto of “Let’s Go Further Together”, Dr Jario aims to bring a patient-centered approach to neurosurgical services in Namibia with a focus on world-class healthcare.

At the heart of Windhoek, Neurosurgical Centre is a commitment to providing safe and effective treatment options and care for all neurosurgical conditions. The practice operates with a core set of values guiding every decision and ensuring the best possible outcomes for patients. The Centre is proud to treat patients with compassion, honesty and professionalism at all times and aims to instill hope in patients and their families through their dedication and commitment to going the extra mile.

Along with treating patients, Windhoek Neurosurgical Centre recognizes the challenges and stigma associated with brain tumors and spinal cord injuries in Namibia and intends to create more awareness of these issues to benefit the wider Namibian community.
