Mr Andreas K Demetriades

Consultant Neurosurgeon & Spinal Surgeon

BSc(Honours), MBBChir (Cantab), MPhil (Cantab), FRCSEd (NeuroSurg), Diplomate of the European Board of Neurosurgery

Personal profile

As a neurosurgeon and spinal surgeon I deal with adult and paediatric patients with brain and spine problems. These include brain tumours, haemorrhage, hydrocephalus, Chiari malformations and facial pain (trigeminal neuralgia). A special interest of mine is the spine. I have received specialised training in both simple and complex spinal procedures as well as minimally invasive spine surgery.

My aim is to treat these conditions non-operatively as far as possible, but when necessary to provide the latest and most advanced surgical expertise. To this effect I have supplemented my training with post-specialisation fellowships in both neurosurgical and orthopaedic centres, both in the UK and abroad, thus obtaining a unique perspective on treatment options and techniques.

I also deal with patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar nerve compression. After graduating from Cambridge, I completed the Basic Surgical Training at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals and the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, London. I entered the Higher Surgical Training programme on the South London circuit and trained as a Senior Registrar at King’s College Hospital, St George’s Hospital, and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals.

I completed fellowships in skull base surgery in Tokyo; Neurosurgical Spine in Munich; & Orthopaedic Spine in Oxford. I am currently a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh.
