About


Consultant Neurologist, Dr Anupam Bhattacharjee runs highly specialised neurology clinics at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and the Royal Free Hospital in London. He also runs a large general neurology practice at Lister Hospital in Hertfordshire.


Dr Bhattacharjee treats patients suffering from all common neurological diseases, such as headaches, blackouts, and epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. His specialised clinic at the Royal Free Hospital deals with peripheral nerve and neuromuscular diseases and receives referrals from across the country. He is a specialist in immunological diseases and regularly treats other diseases where there is neurological involvement for example with rheumatological, renal, and dermatological diseases. In addition, he co-runs a clinic with a Consultant Haematologist where he treats patients with haematological diseases affecting the nervous system.


Dr Bhattacharjee studied medicine at Guy's and St. Thomas' Hospitals, earning a first-class degree in Physiology and was top in his exams. He then pursued an MB/PhD programme funded by the Migraine Trust, qualifying with distinction. He went on to train at a number of London hospitals before training as a Specialist Registrar in Neurology at the Royal Free Hospital and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

 

Dr Bhattacharjee is a member of the Royal Free IVIg committee Subregional Immunoglobulin Assessment Panel and has developed a large plasma exchange service with the Royal Free's haematology department to treat patients with neuro-immunological disorders. Dr Bhattacharjee is often asked to present his work at national and international conferences and is an advisor to pharmaceutical companies involved in the treatment of neuro-immunological disorders.

Explanation (5/5)
Explained things clearly. Took as long as was needed to make sure you understood what he was saying. Expressed a clear path forward as to "what would happen next" and finally, just showed an interest in me as a person rather than just a patient. Would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone that asks.

Explanation (5/5)
What a wonderful human being. Made me feel at ease straightaway. He quickly came to a conclusion about the reason for my condition. Provided clear and sensible options to resolve with an option to initially try an exercise before trying drugs. Very pleased to say after one day of exercise my condition that has caused me not to be able to sleep for so long has not been solved. Can certainly recommend from both a bedside manner but more importantly medical.
