Ralph Mobbs

Neurosurgeon
Conjoint Senior Lecturer

Ralph Mobbs is a Spinal Neurosurgeon at the Prince of Wales Private and Public Hospitals in Sydney, Australia. He is director of the NeuroSpineClinic, Chair of the NSURG research group and Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Spine Surgery, and is clinical Associate Professor in Neurosurgery.

His clinical expertise is in the areas of spinal tumors, spinal trauma, and minimally invasive spine surgery for degenerative conditions. Over the last 15 years, he has developed new surgical fixation systems and implants, approaches and techniques in common use today.

Research interests include: 3D Printing, Bio-materials, Disc Arthroplasty, Minimally Invasive surgical techniques, Wearable technologies, and Stem Cells regenerative therapies in combination with the University of New South Wales (UNSW).

Dr Mobbs is heavily involved in the UNSW ILP program and supervising PhD and MS students.
