Diseases treated:

Cranial pathology:

  • General Neuro-oncology (primary tumours, metastases, pituitary tumours, meningiomas, vestibular schwannomas, skull base tumours, spinal tumours).
  • Familial neuro-oncology (referral centre for Von Hippel-Lindau disease and Neurofibromatosis 1 and 2).
  • Skull Base Surgery (Skull Base Unit, mixed Neurosurgery-ENT).
  • Functional neurosurgery, in collaboration with the Abnormal Movements Unit (Neurology) (deep brain stimulation in dystonia, Parkinson's disease, microvascular decompression in trigeminal neuralgia).
  • Epilepsy (epilepsy surgery programme, part of the Epilepsy Unit).
  • Vascular pathology (cerebrovascular accidents, arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms, cavernomas, dural fistulas), in collaboration with Interventional Neuroradiology and ICU.

Traumatic brain injuries.

  • Infections (abscesses, empyemas).
  • Cerebrospinal fluid disorders (hydrocephalus, pseudotumour cerebri, CSF fistula).

Spinal pathology:

  • Degenerative spine (herniated disc, canal stenosis).
  • Fractures (acute, osteoporotic, pathological).
  • Spinal tumours (intramedullary, intradural, extradural, vertebral).

Peripheral nerve pathology:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Ulnar nerve entrapment syndrome.
  • Peripheral nerve-dependent tumours.

Paediatric neurosurgery:

  • Craniosynostosis.
  • Paediatric Neuro-oncology.
