Professor Charlie Teo

Professor Charlie Teo AM is not your typical neurosurgeon.

In demand across all continents for his willingness to offer surgery to those who have been given no hope, he has appointments in Australia, USA, India, Vietnam and Singapore.


As passionate about teaching as performing surgery, Charlie has been awarded best teacher awards in both the USA and Australia and devotes 3 months of his time every year instructing and doing live surgery in developing countries. 

He has also established a fellowship program that attracts over 600 applicants every year and has trained and mentored neurosurgeons for many of the world's leading universities, such as Johns Hopkins, Stanford, Duke and Harvard Universities.

Professor Teo strongly believes that a surgeon's responsibility to their patients shouldn’t end after 


In keeping with his desire to find cures for recurrent brain tumours, he has raised over $20 million for research. 

He has done this through the Cure For Life Foundation, the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and currently the Charlie Teo Foundation.

His efforts were recognised in 2011 when he was appointed a member of the Order of Australia, in 2012 when he was invited to give the Australia Day Address to the Nation, and then in 2013 when he was the first non-politician Australian to address the US Congress on the need for more funding for brain cancer research.

Charlie is a father to four beautiful daughters and supports the rights of girls and young women in impoverished countries such as Cambodia and India through various charities including his own Teo Family Foundation
