Mr Zrinzo has collaborated with clinical and research activities at the Unit of Functional Neurosurgery since February 2003 and was appointed Consultant Neurosurgeon to the Unit in May 2007.

His first encounter with surgery for Parkinson’s disease was in 1992 when visiting the Neurosurgical Department in Lund, Sweden as a medical student.

Having completed his undergraduate medical education in Malta he moved to London to pursue a career in Neurosurgery. His interest in Functional Neurosurgery developed further while pursuing an MSc in Clinical Neuroscience at the Institute of Neurology for which he was awarded a Distinction.

Mr Zrinzo has engaged in two Stereotactic and Functional Fellowships, at Queen Square, London and at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) under the aegis of Professors Marwan Hariz and Antonio DeSalles respectively. Research projects conducted within these Units have been directed towards continual improvement in the surgical care of patients undergoing deep brain stimulation.
