Tipu Aziz

Professor of Neurosurgery

Professor Tipu Aziz is the founder and head of Oxford functional neurosurgery. His primate work was central to confirming the subthalamic nucleus as a possible surgical target for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease and more recently the pedunculopontine nucleus. OFN is currently one of the busiest centres for such surgery in the UK and academically very productive.

Research Interests are: the role of the upper brain stem in the control of movement, the clinical neurophysiology of movement disorders and neuropathic pain and autonomic responses to deep brain stimulation, use of MR and MEG imaging in functional neurosurgery.
