Professor Andrew McEvoy is a world-leading consultant neurosurgeon at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) and Neurosurgery and Institute of Neurology (ION) in London.

He is the Clinical Lead for Neuro-oncology and Epilepsy Surgery at NHNN.

He has the largest adult epilepsy surgical practice in the UK and leads the surgical arm of the department of clinical and experimental epilepsy which is the renowned, preeminent epilepsy research group in Europe.

Professor McEvoy performs all surgical therapies for the management of epilepsy such as temporal lobe resections, hemispherotomy, corpus callosotomy, vagal nerve stimulation and gamma knife surgery. He has a number of ongoing research interests examining robotics in neurosurgery, developments in neuronavigation, the evaluation of functional deficit following epilepsy surgery, and imaging of the optic radiation to prevent visual field defects in temporal lobe surgery.

Listed in The Times 2010 top UK doctors for his epilepsy and brain tumour surgery, Professor McEvoy’s specialist neurooncology service has a particular interest in the prediction and preservation of function during large resective neurosurgical procedures and the reorganisation of brain function around brain tumours. This multidisciplinary approach integrates facilities such as 3T MRI, FMRI for language and motor function, DTI, MEG, neurophysiology and neuropsychology.

As a result of this expertise, he performs probably the largest number of ‘awake’ craniotomies presently in the UK. This enables the largest possible resection of brain tumours while minimalising neurological deficit. He has extensive experience of the use of Interventional MRI and Gamma Knife radiosurgery.

His busy general neurosurgical practice encompasses spinal surgery, trigeminal neuralgia, hydrocephalus, head injury and peripheral nerve surgery. Professor McEvoy has published and presented widely both nationally and internationally and hold a number of research grants funding ongoing projects at The Institute of Neurology in London.

Professor McEvoy has practicing privileges at The Wellington Hospital, The Princess Grace Hospital and The Cromwell Hospital.

What is a Neurosurgeon?

Problems with the spine, brain, or nervous system (collectively, the central nervous system or CNS) are many and varied. Patients experiencing problems like movement disorders, chronic headaches, stroke, seizures, or spinal cord damage will often seek out the services of a neurologist to diagnose and treat them. When these problems are not able to be fixed with medical or non-invasive treatments, patients will typically need the services of a top neurosurgeon in London. Neurosurgeons are, in the simplest terms, brain surgeons. Fortunately, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to find the best neurosurgeons in London – it’s easy with Doctify.

When to see a Neurosurgeon?

If patients have tumours, spinal cord damage, stroke damage, or other serious problems that will require brain or spinal cord surgery, the top neurosurgeons in London are the specialists who will perform those corrective procedures. They generally have incredibly extensive training, including regular college/pre-med, their medical degree, a surgical internship, an additional 5 to 7 years as a neurosurgical resident, and possibly a fellowship before they are free to practice on their own as neurosurgeons. Patients can rest assured when choosing a neurosurgeon in London from Doctify that they are getting highly trained experts who do nothing but these kinds of surgeries, procedures, and treatments. As one of the more complex surgical specialities, neurosurgery certainly has risks. However, if a neurologist or top neurosurgeon in London has determined that the best course of treatment is a surgical or invasive procedure, their body of experience and skill should be respected – it might just save your life!

What procedures can you find at a Neurosurgery clinic? 

  • Surgery For Sciatica
  • Surgery For Myelopathy
  • Cyberknife
  • Pituitary Tumour Surgery
  • Gammaknife
  • Video Consultation
