Mr Pereira is an academic neurosurgeon. He is a Senior Lecturer at St George’s, University of London, UK and visiting Professor at the University of Porto, Portugal. He has published over 120 papers, 20 book chapters, and two books in many aspects of neurosurgery, the majority in deep brain stimulation surgery for movement disorders and pain.
His main research involves recording from the brain in patients with deep brain stimulation to learn more about how the mind works and improve the therapy. This research touches patients with Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, tremor, stroke, epilepsy and chronic pain.
Other research themes include pain in Parkinson’s disease and dystonia, spinal problems in Parkinson’s disease and dystonia, radiofrequency brain lesions for Parkinson’s disease and tremor, spinal cord stimulation for pain and spinal surgery for pain.
