About Oxford Functional Neurosurgery

Oxford Functional Neurosurgery was founded in 1993 by Professor Tipu Aziz. Since then we have treated over 2000 patients and the unit has grown to a staff of four consultant neurosurgeons, two consultant neurologists, and seven specialist nurses.

We use treatments including deep brain stimulation and spinal cord stimulation to treat a wide variety of conditions including a range of movement disorders and chronic severe pain.

Several of our consultants are also principal investigators in the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences and Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurology of the University of Oxford. We have an active programme of research into the interaction of electrical implants with the nervous system, with the aim of improving the treatments we presently offer and also developing them to help patients with other conditions that have not been treated this way before.

We realise that this site may be read by patients, healthcare professionals, and those who are interested in our research, and have tried to present the information in a way that is useful to all.
