Mr. Simon Cudlip Graduated from King’s College School of Medicine, London in 1990. During this period he also gained a BSc first class (Hons) in immunology. Following a period of training in general surgery in London he entered the neurosurgery training programme in London based at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, and the Atkinson Morley Hospital, London. During this period of training he completed his MD thesis in MRI imaging of peripheral nerve and published numerous papers on this topic and on MRI spectroscopy of brain tumours.

On completion of his general neurosurgical training in 2003, he spent a year as a fellow at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square as the Pituitary Fellow to Mr Michael Powell. In addition to this he visited Naples and Bologna to gain experience in endoscopic pituitary surgery, and Seattle as a visiting fellow. In 2004 he was appointed as Consultant in Neurosurgery with a specialist interest in pituitary and skull-base surgery in Oxford, and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Neurosurgery at the University of Oxford. Since this time he has performed over 1200 transsphenoidal operations for pituitary disease, these have been performed using a pure endoscopic technique since 2007. As a result of this Oxford has the best established nationally recognised pituitary surgical training fellowship in the UK. These endoscopic techniques have now been developed further with his colleague Puneet Plaha, and extended into surgery for intrinsic brain tumours.

In addition to his other achievements, Mr. Cudlip is keen in the field of medical research and has published numerous papers, book chapters and reviews on the topic of pituitary surgery. He is also a tutor at the College of Surgeons of England and numerous international courses, teaching endoscopic surgical techniques as well as running a course on cervical disc replacement surgery in Amsterdam and the UK. More recently he has travelled to Uzbekistan and India, operating and lecturing on pituitary surgery in different nations, helping to broaden global knowledge and create better outcomes for patients worldwide.

Mr Plaha is a consultant neurosurgeon with a special interest in brain tumour surgery. He completed his basic medical training in 1996 and surgical training in 2000 at JIPMER, University of Pondicherry, India, one of the top medical institutes in India.

He went on to train in neurosurgery in Bristol and earned an MD degree in 2010. Additionally, he has completed a double fellowship in Endoscopy Neurosurgery and Skull Base Brain Tumour Surgery from Oxford. Since 2013, he has been a consultant neurosurgeon with a substantive post at the John Radcliffe Oxford University Hospitals.

Mr Plaha has established advanced techniques for awake brain tumour surgery and developed novel techniques for the minimally invasive endoscopic resection of brain tumours. He is highly experienced in awake brain tumour surgery and undertakes a high volume of these surgeries in the UK. He has performed over 1000 brain tumour procedures, including awake surgery as well as minimally invasive endoscopic surgery. He is routinely asked to provide second opinions for patients from all over the world.

He also leads a research group that aims to understand how brain networks are affected by brain tumours; the group investigates novel surgical modalities to make brain surgery safer, brain tumour immunotherapy, and novel clinical trials. Mr Plaha has multiple publications in his field of brain tumour surgery.

He is also the director of the "Oxford 3D White Fibre Course," which teaches neurosurgeons about the anatomy and procedures of awake brain tumour surgery. Additionally, he is a tutor at the College of Surgeons of England and a faculty at an international course.

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. Neurosurgeons are, in the simplest terms, brain surgeons. Fortunately, it doesn’t take a brain surgeon to find the best neurosurgeons – 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 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 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 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
