Dr Neil Cleaver

Orthopaedic Surgeon (Spine)

Dr Neil Cleaver MB BS, BSc, FRACS (ortho), MACIME is an orthopaedic spinal specialist, having a special Fellowship in Anterior Spine Surgery. He has studied and worked in London, South America and Queensland, and is currently busy with clinical practice on the Gold Coast. 

Dr Cleaver pioneered the use of the minimally invasive extreme lateral total disc replacement in Australia (XL-TDR) and the extreme lateral interbody fusion technique (X-LIF), and is committed to further research and development in the field of minimally invasive surgical reconstructions of the spine.

Dr Cleaver is Master Certified Independent Medical Examiner (MACIME-ABIME) in the AMA4, AMA5 and AMA6, and sits on the Board of Advisers of the American Board of Independent Medical Examiners, as well as being a member of that College Board, a rare honour. He is also an authorised health practitioner for NSW motor vehicle claims under SIRA. He is passionate about medico-legal work, and his reports are outstanding – from minor whiplash matters to catastrophic injuries. Our in-house legal team recommend briefing Dr Cleaver regarding any nature of spinal injury, particularly where a claimant may be suffering a pelvic injury, or if there is a complex causation question.
