Consultation update: Covid-19
The government is urging all people to avoid any unnecessary social contact to reduce and prevent the spread of Covid-19. The health and safety of our patients and colleagues is extremely important to us and we all must take care of ourselves and each other in light of this pandemic.
We completely understand that current health conditions and issues should not and will not be ignored. Therefore, we will be offering telephone consultations to new and existing patients who are unwell, self-isolating and not able to travel.

Meet Pietro D'Urso
I have been a consultant Neurosurgeon at Salford Royal Hospital since 2014.
I routinely manage general neurosurgical conditions including degenerative spine, trauma, hydrocephalus, neck pain and lower back pain.
In addition, I specialise in the surgical treatment of benign and malignant brain tumours, awake craniotomies with brain mapping, brain tumour resections with fluorescent dye, intraoperative neurophysiology monitoring, fluorescence guided resection of brain tumours, minimally invasive cranial surgery and cranial endoscopy.
I originally trained in Italy, where I obtained my medical degree and completed my training in Neurosurgery.
I worked in Italy as a Neurosurgeon in 2009 and then moved to the prestigious Mayo Clinic, USA, for a clinical research year.
In 2011, I moved to London to work at King’s College Hospital, where I enhanced my surgical skills and specialised in Surgical Neuro-oncology.
