Mr Alex Leggate
FRCS (Neuro.Surg) MBChB, BSc (HONS), MRCS, PGCME (Dist.)
I completed my neurosurgical training in Manchester before being appointed as a consultant at Queens Medical Centre Nottingham in 2020.
I have completed a complex spine and cranial fellowship at St Vincent's Hospital, Melbourne in Australia and the prestigious Royal College of Surgeons approved Neuro-Oncology Fellowship, Manchester.
I am the Neuro-trauma lead for the East Midlands and I am passionate about improving the multi-disciplinary care of neurosurgical patients.
I maintain a specialist interest in minimally invasive spinal surgery (neck and back) and I am trained in all aspects of spinal pathology and management including spinal injections. I believe in a multidisciplinary approach to spinal problems.
I regularly perform complex neuro-oncology procedures (including awake craniotomy, neurophysiology mapping, intra-operative ultrasound guidance and 5-ALA fluorescence) as well as endoscopic assisted cranial surgery.
I have presented my work at multiple national and international conferences.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Alex Leggate at Spire include:
Spire Nottingham Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
