Professional profile

Simon Cudlip Graduated King’s College School of Medicine, London in 1990. During this period he also gained a BSc first class (Hons) in immunology. Following a period of training in general surgery in London he entered the neurosurgery training programme in London based at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square, and the Atkinson Morley Hospital, London. During this period of training he completed his MD thesis in MRI imaging of peripheral nerve and published numerous papers on this topic and on MRI spectroscopy of brain tumours. On completion of his general neurosurgical training in 2003, he spent a year as a fellow at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, Queen Square as the Pituitary Fellow to Mr Michael Powell. In addition to this he visited Naples and Bologna to gain experience in endoscopic pituitary surgery, and Seattle as a visiting fellow. In 2004 he was appointed as Consultant in Neurosurgery with a specialist interest in pituitary and skull-base surgery in Oxford, and Honorary Senior Lecturer in Neurosurgery at the University of Oxford. Since this time he has performed over 1200 transsphenoidal operations for pituitary disease, these have been performed using a pure endoscopic technique since 2007. As a result of this Oxford has the best established nationally recognised pituitary surgical training fellowship in the UK. These endoscopic techniques have now been developed further with his colleague Puneet Plaha, and extended into surgery for intrinsic brain tumours. He has published numerous papers, book chapters and reviews on the topic of pituitary surgery, and is a tutor at the College of Surgeons of England and numerous international courses, teaching endoscopic surgical techniques. He also runs a course on cervical disc replacement surgery in Amsterdam and the UK. More recently he has travelled to Uzbekistan and India, operating and lecturing on pituitary surgery.
