Dr Simon Freilich
Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology
MBBS (Dist), BSc (Hons), FRCP (UK), AICSM
I am a Consultant in Clinical Neurophysiology primarily based at the Luton and Dunstable University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust since 2018. I qualified with distinction from Imperial College School of Medicine in 2006 and undertook a wide range of clinical training in general medicine working across London's leading teaching hospitals.
I have extensive experience across all ages and branches of Neurophysiology having trained at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery, The Royal Free Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital. I won the British Society of Clinical Neurophysiology’s prestigious Lord Adrian prize in my first year of specialist training for my work on national sedation monitoring across England’s Intensive Care Units. I remain actively involved in research, training and quality improvement projects as well as my own personal professional development.
I have particular expertise in peripheral nerve injuries, nerve entrapment, neuro-muscular diseases and epilepsy, working across all age ranges. I strive to make the experience of neurophysiological tests as pleasant as possible and ensure that reports are generated rapidly.
My areas of expertise include; Nerve conduction studies and Electromyography (NCS/EMG/QEMG/SF-EMG), Evoked Potentials (SSEP, MEP, ERG, VEP, BSAEP) and Electroencephalography (Routine, Sleep Deprived, Video-Telemetry, Ambulatory).
