Best neurosurgeon in London, UK

Please will people share the names of anyone they think is a top neurosurgeon etc in London. We have just moved here so I don’t have any contacts and I’m hoping there will be people on this forum with insider knowledge!!! I have a large Dural AV fistula based on the lateral and sigmoid venous sinuses. I’ve had 2 people tell me I must deal with it as I’m having terrible migraines, dizziness etc.

Hiya jap001

I am also based in London, and my consultant referred me to dr Makalanda at Barts hospital. I had my gamma knife treatment done by him. Not sure if he actually does surgery though. There used to be a section on the old website which had a list of recommended doctors, not sure if it has been transferred over to this new site, perhaps one of the moderators will be able to guide you to that section !! All the best Amanda xx

Thanks Amanda, I’m in the process of trying to find the UK Doctors list that we used to have on the old platform from the UK Group, I will pin it to the UK group here when found.

In the mean time I did a search for London and it has returned some nice results regarding doctors Here

Jap001 please click on the Here above and you will see some results that will get you started and I will continue to look for the list od doctors we used to maintain in the UK Group.


Thank you. I’m going through it now

Hello, I recommend UCLH, consultant neurosurgeon that treated me was amazing, but it wasn’t just Consultant, it was her team, colleagues- nurses and after care. It was a hard time but they didn’t let me down,

desperately trying to find a consultant who is experiened in avm’s in oxfordshire/buckinghamshire/aylesbury. any idea where i can find this? thanks

This is a thread that hasn’t been active for four years. Could I suggest starting a new thread asking for suggestions?
Click on the butterfly (upper left) and then on the plus sign in the blue circle (lower right).
You’ll stand a better chance of getting current suggestions. I hope you find someone local to you, but I should add that when you have a rare condition, you sometimes have to travel to get the degree of specialized expertise that you need. It’s an investment that’s well worth it.
