I am a Consultant Neurosurgeon working for the Manchester Centre for Clinical Neurosciences based at Salford Royal Hospital. My main interests lie in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant brain tumours, awake craniotomies with brain mapping, intraoperative neurophysiology monitoring, fluorescence guided resection of brain tumours, minimally invasive cranial surgery and cranial endoscopy. I have originally trained in Italy and in 2010 I moved to Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. In 2011, I moved to London where I specialized in Surgical Neuro-oncology at King’s College Hospital. I have been appointed consultant Neurosurgeon with subspecialty interest in Neuro-oncology at Salford Royal Hospital in 2014.
