About Andrew McEvoy
Mr McEvoy is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN) and Institute of Neurology (ION) in London. He has the largest adult epilepsy surgical practice in the UK and leads the surgical arm of the Department of Clinical and Experimental Epilepsy which is the renowned, pre-eminent epilepsy research group in Europe.
Mr McEvoy performs all surgical therapies for the management of epilepsy such temporal lobe resections, hemispherotomy, corpus callosotomy, vagal nerve stimulation and gamma knife surgery.
Listed in The Times 2010 top UK doctors for his epilepsy and brain tumour surgery, Mr McEvoy’s specialist neurooncology service has a particular interest in the prediction and preservation of function during large resective neurosurgical procedures and the reorganisation of brain function around brain tumours. This multidisciplinary approach integrates facilities such as 3T MRI, fMRI for language and motor function, DTI, MEG, neurophysiology and neuropsychology.
As a result of this expertise, he performs probably the largest number of ‘awake’ craniotomies presently in the UK. This enables the largest possible resection of brain tumours while minimising neurological deficit. Gamma Knife and Cyberknife ensure that patients have access to the most extensive treatment options available at any centre throughout the world.
His busy general neurosurgical practice encompasses spinal surgery, trigeminal neuralgia, hydrocephalus, head injury and peripheral nerve surgery. Mr McEvoy has published and presented widely both nationally and internationally and holds a number of research grants, funding ongoing projects at the Institute of Neurology in Queen Square.
Mr McEvoy is also Honorary Consultant Neurosurgeon to Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

I would like to thank you all for your support whilst I was on the Nuffield ward. I could not have asked for any better treatment.
