Mr Irfan Malik is a Consultant Spinal Neurosurgeon across a variety of hospitals including the Harley Street Clinic, King’s College Hospital, and the London Bridge Hospital where he has been responsible for bringing in the new technique of endoscopic microdiscectomy. He is the first surgeon in England to perform this endoscopic microdiscectomy technique.
He is a member of a team of Consultant Neurosurgeons at the London Neurosurgery Partnership. This Partnership is a unique concept in the provision of neurosurgical care. Comprised of a team of recognised super-specialists in their area of expertise, the aim is to ensure that every patient seen by the group is given the individualised and state-of-the-art care each patient deserves.
The London Neurosurgery Partnership has access to all of the latest neurosurgical technologies including CyberKnife© and Gamma Knife© for radiosurgery which allow conventional open surgery to be omitted completely in some cases as well as minimally invasive techniques for cranial and spinal neurosurgery when this is not possible.
In addition to his expertise in endoscopic spinal surgery, Mr Malik is an expert in minimally invasive surgery techniques as well as disc replacement surgery for neck and back pain, epilepsy surgery and non-surgical treatments for degenerative, malignant and traumatic spinal disorders.
Mr Malik qualified in medicine and neurosurgery in 1991 at universities in Pakistan before completing advanced neurosurgical training in the UK at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield and the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire. He has been awarded Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (Neurosurgery) and has completed fellowships in Complex Spine and Epilepsy Surgery from King’s College London and the University Hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire.
