A British-Bangladeshi professor, from the Nuffield Department of Surgical Sciences (NDS), has been awarded Britain's highest neurosurgery honour, for his achievement in neurosurgery.

Tipu Aziz, founder and head of Oxford functional neurosurgery, was awarded with the Medal of the Society of British Neurological Surgeons (SBNS) on March 21.

He was instrumental in achieving a rise in functional neurosurgery, both in the UK and internationally. He studied for his MD in Manchester, elucidating pathways in the basal ganglia, and providing the first robust evidence, that the subthalamic nucleus was a potential target in functional neurosurgery.

Prof Aziz said: “Particularly significant is that I am the first serving neurosurgeon to be selected. Much of the work I have done has been in Oxford and I feel it is an award for me as well as  the University.”
