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
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.
