The Neuro Team
Abbas Sadikot, MD, PhD
Dr. Abbas Sadikot is a neurosurgeon with clinical interests in general neurosurgery, including brain tumours, cerebrovascular disease and spinal disorders, and in functional neurosurgery, which includes movement disorders, trigeminal neuralgia, epilepsy and spasticity, and radiosurgery. With the Brain Imaging Centre, he helps to design new techniques for image-guided neurosurgery. Dr. Sadikot's research interest lies in determining how the developing brain forms complex networks, information that can be used to develop new therapies for repairing the damaged nervous system. He is particularly interested in cell and growth-factor replacement strategies. His work has implications for neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's Disease and maldevelopmental conditions that lead to epilepsy.
