Caption: Henry Marsh. Portrait of British neurosurgeon Mr. Henry Marsh (born 1950), practitioner of the awake craniotomy brain surgery procedure. Behind him are MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scans of a patient's brain used to plan the surgery. Marsh is Senior Consultant Neurosurgeon at the Atkinson Morley's Hospital, London. Awake craniotomy involves operating on the brain while the patient is brought to an awake state from a general anaes- thetic. While awake the patient's ability to speak and respond is assessed; brain damage from surgery is thus prevented. The procedure is mainly used in epilepsy where areas of brain must be removed, and on brain tumours. Photographed in 1995.
