About me

He is specialised in the treatment of primary and secondary brain tumours after completing the prestigious neuro-oncology fellowship at King’s College Hospital, London. With a wealth of experience learned in the management of spinal and brain tumours with the use of technical advances, such as neuro-navigation, 5-ALA for the detection of high grade gliomas and minimally invasive approaches, he has also a specialist interest in surgery for tumours in eloquent areas of the brain, using brain mapping, neuromonitoring and awake surgery techniques. He has a well-established spinal practice treating conditions of the cervical and lumbar spine, including sciatica and brachialgia, together with radiculopathies and pain management.

Mr Vergani lectures nationally and internationally, predominantly on the topic of brain mapping and surgery in neuro-oncology. He is also a member of the Society of British Neurosurgeons (SBNS). He has published extensively in peer review journals and book chapters. In 2015 he won the prestigious Young Neurosurgeon Award of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS). Mr Vergani setup the first UK service for non-invasive brain mapping with Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) - this is useful for planning surgery in eloquent areas of the brain.
