Martin joined us from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm. This centre has the reputation of excellence in research and medical innovation and is one of the leading Universities in the world. Martin’s pedigree was pretty typical of someone who has trained at such an auspicious centre. Having completed his residency in neurosurgery he then received a PhD in molecular biology before successfully applying for the Aesculap Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Neurosurgery. The Swedish are well known for their modesty and Martin was no exception. Although extremely talented both in and out of the operating room he went about his work quietly and conscientiously without the fanfare so often seen in gregarious neurosurgeons!
He became comfortably familiar with innovative endonasal techniques and was soon itching to return to his homeland to offer this minimally invasvie operation to patients suffering from skull base tumours. He was accompanied by his beautiful wife and 3 gorgeous children and we wish them the best of luck in their bright future in Sweden.
