Mr Mansoor Foroughi is a highly experienced consultant brain and spine neurosurgeon, specialising in both brain and spine disorders. He has special interests in CSF disorders such as hydrocephalus, normal pressure hydrocephalus, chiari malformation and syringomyelia, arachnoid cysts, neuroendoscopy and brain keyhole surgery, CSF pathway lesions such as colloid cysts and pineal lesions, brain tumours (meningiomas, skull base tumours), microvascular decompression for trigeminal neuralgia and hemifacial spasm, neurovascular surgery (cerebral aneurysms, AVM, Cavernous haemangioma), cervical and lumbar spine disc surgery, cervical spine disc replacement, as well as spinal stenosis.
His private practice is mainly at Nuffield Health Brighton Hospital, Wellington Hospital London and Spire Gatwick Park hospital. He is one of the most well-trained neurosurgeons in the UK, and is extremely passionate about patient-centred care and communication and excellence in clinical and surgical standards, focusing on minimally invasive surgical techniques, neuroendoscopy, and microsurgical approaches for brain and spine conditions.
Mr Foroughi, who offers his patients the opportunity to have their surgery recorded should they wish, obtained his first official medical qualification at Sheffield Medical School in 1992, before completing his FRCS (Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons) in London in 1997, obtaining both parts at the first attempt. He commenced neurosurgical training at the Royal London Hospital and completed his formal training in neurosurgery at the University Hospital of Wales, gaining extensive experience and training in both Brain and Spine surgery.
Mr Foroughi impressively completed three intensive fellowships programmes with internationally renowned masters in their respective fields, the first of which was in Helsinki, Finland. He gained extensive training in relation to areas such as neurovascular conditions, microneurosurgery and skull base surgical techniques. He then travelled to train in Vancouver, Canada, where he completed a one year fellowship program in paediatric neurosurgery, with focusing on CSF disorders and more complex brain tumours, which was followed by his third fellowship at the renowned Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, where he enhanced his skillset, experience and knowledge in relation to minimally invasive surgical techniques and skull base surgery.
Combining paediatric and adult CSF disorders experience and services in Birmingham and a well-recognised, international reputation for management of Hydrocephalus, Chiari and Syringomyelia, he has focused on the development of CSF disorders as a speciality and management of the more complex Brain tumours and Neurovascular disorders. He has performed over 4,000 neurological surgical procedures, has published numerous articles and abstracts in peer-reviewed journals, and has been the author of book chapters relating specifically to neurosurgery and his areas of interest.
