Mr Sanjeev Bassi, born in London and educated at Ilford County Grammar School for Boys and Victoria University of Manchester, is a consultant adult and paediatric neurosurgeon who treats patients with brain and spinal problems.

After gaining the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons, Mr Bassi trained in neurosurgery in Nottingham and obtained his fellowship at the Necker Hospital in Paris and the Montefiore Hospital in New York. He then worked as a paediatric neurosurgical fellow at the Radcliffe Infirmary in Oxford and then as a consultant in adult and paediatric neurosurgery at King's College Hospital and the Evelina Children’ Hospital, St Thomas Hospital.

He has a full adult and paediatric practice for both cranial and spinal surgery. He provides treatment for sciatica, back pain, neck pain, brain tumours, hydrocephalus, brain haemorrhage, spinal tumours, cerebral palsy, implantation of skeletal muscle relaxant pumps, neuroendoscopy. He also treats premature children and is involved in antenatal diagnosis and counselling of parents of babies with spinal and brain problems which have been diagnosed by foetal MRI before birth.

He is one of the two leading paediatric neurosurgeons at Kings and performs 25%-30% of all paediatric neurosurgical operations occurring in the South of England. He also specialises in general neurosurgery for adults and paediatric diseases which progress into adulthood. He furthermore deals with degenerative spinal problems, including brachalgia, sciatica, spinal cord tumours and all brain tumours.

Having trained extensively in the applications of neuro-endoscopy in neurosurgery, he teaches and lectures internationally on third ventriculostomy, endoscopic treatment of craniopharingiomas and endoscopic applications in pineal tumours. In addition to this, he runs a course on hydrocephalus and endoscopy at the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

It is important that HCA is transparent about our relationship with those doctors who provide us with clinical guidance on delivering the best possible care to patients and operating our hospitals safely and efficiently. We set out here some of the ways in which we work together and the amount we pay this doctor for such services.

Functional Neurosurgery, Neuro-Oncology, Spinal Surgery

Professor Ashkan is a leading neurosurgeon at King’s College Hospital, London and one of the handful of neurosurgeons in the UK to be awarded a Professorship. Professor Ashkan underwent dual postgraduate training in medicine and surgery, obtaining Membership of the Royal College of Physicians in 1997 and the Fellowship of the Royal Colleges of Surgeons of England and Glasgow (FRCS) in 1998. Thereafter, he underwent higher specialist training in general neurosurgery in London, being awarded the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons in Neurosurgery (FRCS SN) in 2002. His subspecialist training in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery included a Fellowship in France with Professor Benabid, generally considered as the founder of modern deep brain stimulation surgery, which led to a MD degree in 2006. He was appointed as a Consultant Neurosurgeon at King’s College Hospital in January 2007 and subsequently was promoted to the position of Professor.

In addition to his expertise in degenerative spine disease, which includes the management of back and neck pain, arm pain and sciatica together with peripheral nerve disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, Professor Ashkan’s main interests are neuromodulation surgery and brain tumours. This includes deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation and occipital nerve stimulation for movement disorders, pain, headaches and image guided minimally invasive and stereotactic surgery for brain tumours including awake craniotomies and brain mapping.  He is also one of the few UK surgeons trained in Gamma and Cyberknife radiosurgery. 

He is the UK Lead for Genomics England programme for brain tumour, President of the British Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, Chairman of the Neurosurgery Section of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society, King’s Lead for Neuro-Oncology, Chair of King’s Neuroscience Clinical Trial Unit and Deputy Lead for King’s Neuroscience Research Advisory Committee. 

Professor Ashkan has published over 400 peer review papers, abstracts and book chapters and is an Associate Editor or reviewer for several journals.

In his spare time Professor Ashkan has completed a degree and diploma in music and enjoys playing the piano.
