Mr Gullan is a Consultant Neurosurgeon with over 22 years' experience. Throughout his career he has been involved in developing and pioneering new techniques and was the first neurosurgeon worldwide to pilot the use of intervertebral fusion cages for cervical disc surgery and the first to introduce posterior lumbar interbody fusion to neurosurgeons in the UK. These techniques have since become commonly employed on an international basis.

Mr Gullan is currently engaged in treating patients with complex spinal problems and patients with brain tumours. Mr Gullan qualified at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, London. He undertook neurosurgical training in Cambridge, Edinburgh and London prior to being appointed in 1998 as Consultant Neurosurgeon to the SE Thames Regional Neurosurgical Unit at the Brook Hospital, which was amalgamated with the Guy’s/Maudsley Unit to create the King’s College Hospital Neuroscience Centre in 1995.
