Dr Ales Aliashkevich is a highly-skilled neurosurgeon, specialising in the surgical treatment of conditions involving brain, spine and peripheral nerves. His conservative philosophy aims to avoid surgery whenever possible by lifestyle modification and non-operative treatment.Dr Aliashkevich believes that less aggressive, keyhole-type interventions can often provide a better solution than traditional surgery. His 26-year experience in minimally-invasive neurosurgery and the development of image-guided and robot-assisted strategies have proven the validity of this approach.
He received his Doctor of Medicine degree with a grade ‘magna cum laude’ from the Rhine Friedrich-Wilhelms University of Bonn, Germany, in 1997 for work in the field of epilepsy surgery. He completed his neurosurgical specialist training in Bonn, and was awarded a certificate of completion of specialist training by the Specialist Training Authority of Royal College of Surgeons, UK. In 2008 he was awarded a fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
Mr Aliashkevich has also completed a cerebrovascular fellowship at the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He has published numerous clinical and scientific papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and presented at international meetings.
