Mr Christopher Uff is a Consultant Neurosurgeon based at The Royal London Hospital and Major Trauma Centre where he is head of neurotrauma and neurovascular surgery. He is also an Honorary Senior Lecturer in neurotrauma and neurovascular surgery at the Blizard Institute, Queen Mary University of London.

Mr Uff has a supra-specialist interest in neurovascular surgery including brain (berry) aneurysms, arterio-venous malformations (AVMs), cavernomas and the surgical management of stroke. He is also a general neurosurgeon with extensive experience in the management of spinal conditions (including sciatica, arm pain, back pain and trauma), hydrocephalus and brain tumours.

Originally from London, he was a pre-clinical medical student at St Andrews University where he was awarded a BSc with honours in developmental neurobiology, and subsequently at clinical school in Manchester University graduating in 2000. After general medical and basic surgical training in the North West and East Anglia, he started Neurosurgery in London in 2003.

He trained on the North London Neurosurgery rotation and was the most junior trainee ever to pass the FRCS (Neurosurgery) examination. He studied for a PhD in Physics and Neurosurgery at the Institute of Cancer Research which was awarded in 2012 and has received received prizes from the British Neuro-Oncology Society and the Society of British Neurological Surgeons.

He completed the neuro-vascular fellowship at Kings College Hospital in 2014 and was appointed as a Consultant Neurosurgeon at The Royal London Hospital later in 2014.

Since starting at The Royal London he has led the neurovascular service and developed the neurotrauma team with a special interest in the management of severe head injury. His acedemic research interests include microvascular brain blood flow imaging and the pathophysiology and genetics of head injury.
