Mr Giuseppe Morassi
Consultant Orthopaedic Spinal Surgeon
MD, MSc PhD(c)
I am a Consultant Complex Spine Surgeon at the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. After completing my CCT in Trauma and Orthopaedics in Greece, I embarked on a two-year Fellowship at the internationally renowned Centre for Spinal Studies and Surgery (CSSS) based at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham. After completing my fellowship, he was appointed as a Consultant Spinal Surgeon in the same unit – one of the biggest and busiest spinal units in the UK - where I was privileged to work with leading figures in the field of spinal surgery.
I have gained significant surgical experience and am able to deal with a variety of spinal pathologies including congenital and degenerative spinal conditions, spinal infections, spinal trauma, spinal tumours and spinal deformity. I have developed a special interest in minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and endoscopic (keyhole) surgery to the spine.
I have completed an MSc degree in Metabolic Bone Diseases from the University of Athens (Greece) and is in the process of writing a dissertation to complete my PhD. I am actively involved in the teaching endoscopic spine surgery to qualified spine surgeons as well as teaching medical students, junior doctors and surgical trainees.
I am a keen researcher with numerous papers published in peer-reviewed international journals and numerous presentations in national and international conferences. He has been an investigator in international multicentre clinical trials.
