About

Mr. Erlick Pereira is a distinguished and esteemed Consultant Neurosurgeon and Spinal Surgeon at the St George's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, where he initiated deep brain stimulation and spinal cord stimulation services for movement disorders and pain. With clinical interests spanning chronic pain, cancer pain, minimally invasive and complex spinal surgery, movement disorders, surgery following trauma, slipped disc management, and treatment of trapped nerves, Mr. Pereira utilizes advanced technologies such as microscopes, endoscopes, image guidance systems, and stereotactic frames. His surgical approach often prioritizes minimally invasive techniques, conducted under anesthesia to ensure patient comfort.

Having pursued psychology at Cambridge followed by medicine at Oxford, Mr. Pereira underwent neurosurgery training at Oxford as well. He furthered his expertise with a fellowship in orthopaedic spinal surgery at Guy's and St Thomas'. Currently holding the position of Reader in Neurosurgery at St George's, University of London, and serving as a Visiting Professor at the University of Porto, Mr. Pereira's research pursuits encompass wearable technology, AI, neuromodulation, electroceuticals, and brain and spine computer interfaces for movement disorders, pain, and spinal cord injury. His exemplary contributions have earned international recognition, including accolades such as the American Association of Neurosurgical Surgeons WJ Sweet Award, Congress of Neurological Surgeons Ron Tasker Award, and the Hunterian Professorship of the Royal College of Surgeons. Mr. Pereira's extensive scholarly works include over 140 full peer-reviewed papers, two books, and 30 book chapters, featuring in renowned publications like Gray's Anatomy. He actively engages in international presentations, provides evaluations for colleagues in the NHS and Harley Street, and offers consultancy services to medical device companies.
