Dr. George Eralil
Dr George Eralil is a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the University Hospital of Wales. His main roles are in the management of brain tumours (he leads the Brain and CNS Cancer division of the Welsh Cancer Network,) and complex facial pain (including trigeminal neuralgia and neuropathic pain). In the fields of brain tumours and injury, he is a firm believer in brain plasticity and its ability to form new connections and improve upon existing pathways and networks. This is where his interest in CBPMs lie. From a facial pain perspective, he has one of the largest trigeminal neuralgia practices in the UK and is already using alternative therapies and drugs to treat intractable trigeminal neuropathic conditions. He believes CBPMs can hugely support patients where standard medications have failed. Mr Eralil is currently an advisor to the Parliamentary Health Service Ombudsman and is also a member of the Welsh Pain Society.
