About

Mr Richard Gullan is a consultant neurosurgeon who received his medical degree in 1977. He completed his neurosurgical training rotation at renowned and specialised units in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London. Mr Gullan was later appointed consultant neurosurgeon at the neurosurgical unit at the Brook Hospital in 1988.

Nearly 25 years ago, Mr Gullan was the first Neurosurgeon in the UK to create a multi-disciplinary neuro-oncology clinic, a concept that has now been adopted throughout the UK. Mr Gullan has also been at the forefront of introducing new surgical techniques: he was the first surgeon worldwide who used fusion cages for cervical disc surgery and he was a pioneer in the UK when he introduced posterior vertebral fusion and drove the introduction of the Cyber Knife - a highly specialised laser technique used to treat brain cancer.

Throughout his career Mr Gullan has been one of the key figureheads and drivers behind advances in his speciality.

Mr Gullan has proved himself to be a keen teacher, mentoring many neurosurgical trainees who have since become consultants in the UK. It therefore comes as no surprise that his work has been presented and published nationally and internationally.
