Background

  Oxford Functional Neurosurgery has its origins in 1993 when Professor Aziz initiated functional surgery for movement disorders in Oxford. At that time Oxford was virtually the only UK centre with such a service.

Professor Aziz has a long standing interest in movement disorders and has made significant contributions to the basic sciences and clinical management of such patients as evidenced by the publications. He has also a deep interest in the treatment of intractable pain syndromes such as phantom limb pain, post-stroke pain, occipital neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia, low back pain and whip lash injuries. The group takes referrals nationally and abroad.

Virtually all the patients are treated under the NHS, funded by their local primary care trusts.

Patients are generally referred to Professor Aziz at the Radcliffe Infirmary by their local specialists.
