Mr Yahia Al-Tamimi
MD MBChB(Hons) BSc(Hons) FRCS(Neuro.Surg.)
I am able to offer consultations to all private self-paying and most privately insured patients requiring a spinal or cranial neurosurgical opinion. Spinal operations can also be offered in the private sector.
I completed my medical training in 2002 and graduated with honours from the University of Leeds. I gained membership of the Royal College of Surgeons of England following training in Preston and Cambridge. I was subsequently placed onto a post-graduate neurosurgical training program in Leeds General Infirmary and gained entry to the specialist register for Neurosurgery in 2013. I subsequently completed a fellowship in skull base neurosurgery in Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust. I was appointed as a consultant in skull base and oncology neurosurgery at Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in December 2014.
My academic interest stems from an intercalated BSc in Pharmacology and I have subsequently gained an MD for conducting a randomised controlled trial in subarachnoid haemorrhage. Other academic areas of interest include research in gliomas and inflammation. I have published 19 articles in peer-reviewed and international journals and have presented on 33 occasions at national and international conferences.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Yahia Al-Tamimi at Spire include:
COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service at Spire Claremont Hospital.
