Neurosurgeons at Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) have been ranked as the best in Great Britain and Ireland in a study on the impact of their academic output.
The study, recently published in the Journal of Neurosurgery, analysed h-index data (which counts citations of papers by a particular author) from the 315 neurosurgeons working across Great Britain and Ireland. CUH neurosurgeons came out top in this study, beating units in London and Oxford.
Professor Peter Hutchinson, who leads the team of 17 neurosurgical consultants at Addenbrooke’s, said: “Our success is testament to the benefits of continued close links between the Trust and the University. The Department has been here for just over 50 years and we continue to push the boundaries of what is possible, building on the initial endeavours of Mr Walpole Lewin, the first neurosurgeon in Cambridge, and subsequent consultants including David Hardy, John Pickard and Alastair Compton.”
