Mario Teo is a Consultant Neurosurgeon and Honorary Senior Clinical Lecturer at Bristol Institute of Clinical Neuroscience, North Bristol University Hospital, having completed a Cerebrovascular and Skull Base fellowship at Stanford University, California, USA. He qualified in medicine from the University of Sheffield, also gaining an intercalated research honours
degree- BMedSci. He then trained in Neurosurgery at Glasgow, Cambridge and London. He has a special interest in minimally invasive cranial and spine surgery, is a firm believer in personalized health care, surgery with less tissue injury, leading to minimal scar and quicker recovery.
His clinical focus includes management of complex brain tumours (schwannoma, meningioma, craniopharyngioma, skull base tumours, neurocutaneous disorders) and cerebrovascular pathologies (moyamoya disease, cerebral aneurysm, arteriovenous malformation, cavernoma, haemangioblastoma), incorporating various surgical techniques (keyhole surgery, endoscopic endonasal approaches, cerebral revascularizations) and technological advancement (3D reconstruction, fibre tracking, virtual reality, intraoperative neuromonitoring).
Academically, he has authored numerous peer-reviewed publications, editorials, book chapters, and is also an advocate of collaborative clinical and scientific research, at local, national and international level.
