Professional background

Fergus Robertson is a consultant in interventional and diagnostic neuroradiology at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery and at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. Fergus studied medicine at Queens’ College, Cambridge University and at the Royal London Hospital before training in general medicine and cardiology in East London and then in general radiology at the Royal Free Hospital in North London. He then completed subspeciality training in neuroradiology on the Pan-London Neuroradiology Fellowship, including a 2 year training in Interventional neuroradiology fellow at Queen Square and Great Ormond Street Hospitals. He was appointed to his current post in 2006.

He is currently the clinical lead for adult and paediatric interventional neuroradiology and for spinal imaging. His key clinical interests include the endovascular treatment of acute stroke, cerebral aneurysms, cerebral venous stenosis, arteriovenous shunts and other vascular problems of the brain and spine in adults and children. His specialist diagnostic imaging interests include vascular and spinal neuroimaging. He is passionate about minimising clinical risk and maximising patient safety through an active clinical governance programme.

Research interests

  • Management of arteriovenous shunts in babies and children
  • Thrombectomy in hyperacute stroke
  • Endovascular management of cerebrovenous disorders
