About me

Bassel Zebian studied medicine at King's College London. He completed his neurosurgical training in London rotating between King's College Hospital, St George's and the Hurstwood Park Neurosciences Centre. He undertook a paediatric neurosurgical fellowship at Alder Hey Children's Hospital. He is currently a Consultant Paediatric and Adult Neurosurgeon at King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, one of the busiest in the country and at the forefront of neurosurgical innovation.

His interests include the management of brain and spine tumours (including pineal, ventricular, thalamic, and brainstem tumours), hydrocephalus, endoscopy and minimally invasive neurosurgery, the management of Chiari malformations and syringomyelia, neural tube defects (including fetoscopic repair of open spina bifida/myelomeningocoele) and the tethered cord, the management of spasticity (including selective dorsal rhizotomy), the neurosurgical management of paediatric neurovascular conditions (haemorrhages) as well as the treatment of the degenerative spine (slipped discs and trapped nerves).

He was the training and education lead from 2015 - 2019 and is currently the lead for undergraduate medicine for neurosurgery. He is the patron of the King's College London Neurosurgery Society which was founded by the medical students he taught. He has an active interest in research with a number of national and international presentations and publications. He is the Principal Investigator on a number of trials. He is the organiser of the international Endoscopy in Neurosurgery course (hands-on course covering all aspects of neurosurgical endoscopy, cranial and spinal).

He has received a global innovation in healthcare award for his endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques which have allowed access to previously inaccessible lesions and their resection using endoscopic ultrasonic aspirators with one of the largest series of such resections in the world. He has the largest UK series of paediatric brain and spine tumour resections using Gliolan (intraoperative tumour fluorescence). He is the neurosurgical lead on fetoscopic repairs of open neural tube defects (spina bifida), a role that won him his second global healthcare award. This is the only service of its kind in the U.K.
