About

Mr Gullan is the most senior neurosurgeon in London neurosurgery partnership and works with other to deliver a high level of neurosurgical care. 

He has obtained his membership of the Royal College of Physicians and a fellowship of the royal college of surgeons. He has developed a large practice in spinal and neurovascular training and has established a reputation for being at the forefront of many surgical techniques. 

He presented the first use of posterior instrumented stabilisation for malignant disease affecting the spinal column and was the first neurosurgeon worldwide to pilot both the use of intervertebral fusion cages for cervical disc surgery and introduce posterior lumbar interbody fusion to neurosurgeons in the UK.

Mr Gullan enjoys teaching, especially operative techniques and clinical decision making, to young neurosurgeons.
