NHS Lothian, Scotland
I have been a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the Western General Hospital in Edinburgh since 2013 and have led the Adult Neuro-oncology service since appointment. I set-up the Low Grade Glioma service with colleagues in 2015 and have an interest in using new technology, functional MRI and evolving surgical techniques to achieve maximal safe resection in Low Grade Glioma Patients.
I have recently been appointed the Lead Clinician for the Scottish Adult Neuro-oncology Network and recently organised the British Neuro-oncology Society Meeting in Edinburgh.
In addition to my Brain tumour interests, I also participate in the management of General Neurosurgical and Spinal diseases.
Optimising Surgical Resection in Low Grade Glioma Patients
This seminar will explore current advances in surgical techniques and technology that can enhance the extent of resection in Low Grade Gliomas, such as Awake Craniotomy and Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring. The seminar will also explore the role of Functional MRI Imaging and Neuro-navigation, as well as Intraoperative MRI and Ultrasound, in achieving maximal safe resection.
