ABOUT DR PROFYRIS
Dr Christos Profyris completed his pre-clinical medical studies at the University of Cambridge with a Double First Class and went on to finish his medical degree with Distinction at the University of Oxford. He completed his Neurosurgical training at the University of Witwatersrand and achieved his Neurosurgery Fellowship qualification from the College of Medicine of South Africa. Finally, he also holds a Master of Medicine in Neurosurgery from the University of Witwatersrand.
In 2019, Dr Christos Profyris completed the prestigious Charles Teo Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery Fellowship under Professor Charles Teo at the Centre for Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery in Sydney. Professor Teo is a world expert in brain tumour surgery having operated on more than 11,000 brain tumours, he was a Professor in the United States for 10 years and is a visiting Professor at DUKE University. He has pioneered keyhole and minimally invasive brain surgery techniques and has more than 100 publication. Dr Christos Profyris had the privilege of learning Professor Teo's techniques and gaining a more in-depth understanding of keyhole techniques and brain tumour surgery.
Dr Christos Profyris heads the Helen Joseph Hospital Neurosurgery Department, where he focuses on brain tumour surgery and vascular neurosurgery.
