About Matthias Radatz

Born in Berlin, following my A-levels at the renowned Heese Gymnasium , I studied Medicine at the “Free University of Berlin”. My Neurosurgical Training took place at major teaching insitutions  in Berlin, Krankenhaus Neukölln under Prof J Zierski and in Sheffield, Royal Hallamshire Hospital under Mr D Forster, Mr J Jakubowski, Mr RDE Battersby and Mr AA Kemeny (2/1994-6/1996).  Here my interest in Gamma Knife Radiosurgery was established. After my return to Berlin I completed my neurosurgical training in May 1997, continuing as Facharzt under Prof. J Zierski.


In 10/1997 I moved to the Neurosurgical Unit in Oxford, UK to further my training in particular in Functional Neurosurgery working with Prof Tipu Aziz and more complex Skull Base Surgery working with Mr C Adams and Mr R Kerr.
