I first met with Dr Erlick Pereira by zoom consultancy in October 2020, having been referred to him by Dr Richard Walsh, Consultant Neurologist, and team leader in DBS at the DNI (Dublin Neurological Institute), Mater Hospital, 57 Eccles Street, Dublin 7. I would like to add in here, that I am from Ireland and as yet, the DBS operation has not been undertaken in the Republic of Ireland and so all Parkinson patients wishing to have the DBS operation, have to travel to England for the procedure. Dr Pereira explained the whole DBS procedure to us, which included possible negatives (these were in very small percentages). As I had decided I wanted to go for the DBS procedure, and had already fulfilled all the necessary criteria (in Dublin) Dr Pereira said he could do the procedure (operation) in The London Clinic (20 Devonshire Place) London on Wednesday 11th November 2020. My husband and I travelled to London in late October as we had to ‘isolate’ there for two weeks before the operation. A few days prior to the operation on 11th November, we taxied in to the London Clinic for our first visit and we were tested for Covet and I underwent all the scans requested by Dr Pereira. As per arrangement, I arrived at the London Clinic on Wednesday 11th November and was booked in. Dr Pereira met with us both in my room before the operation, introduced us to the anaesthetist Dr Tan, explained his time schedule to us and said he would come and speak with my husband immediately after the operation. I was scheduled for four nights stay in the Clinic to include one night in ICU. Commencing around 3.30, the operation took about four hours and then I was held in the ICU unit for the night, where, I received the most excellent of care from the staff there. The nursing staff in this section deserve the highest praise for their total commitment to the care of people who are vulnerable and was so very impressed with it. True to his word, Dr Pereira visited my husband just after the operation and said all had gone very well and he was happy with the outcome. We met with him a few more times before I was discharged from the Clinic. He was very thorough in his profession, a highly accomplished neurosurgeon with a lot of experience in his career to date and yet his personality was friendly and unassuming. I was pleased when he agreed to have his photo taken with me. When programming is complete, I look forward to an improved quality of life and again my sincere thanks to Dr Pereira and his team at the London Clinic.

Hi, I had DBS with Mr Pereira in January. Coming from Ireland we consulted online where we got full confidence with clear and direct answers. The procedure was incident free but it’s still too early to say if it’s worked yet, however the device is ‘in’ which was his job. Pre and post Op communication was excellent with brief daily drop-ins that morning and for 3 of the next 4days afterwards in hospital. The relationship/handoff with my neurologist works well. Administration was made easy once insurance certification was supplied— all done at the worst height of Covid in London. Overall, would highly recommend Mr Pereira and his team

I had experienced neck and lower back pains sporadically for over a year which I did not take seriously because it was not consistent (in part due to the advice from my GP). I was gifted a bungee jump experience which actually exacerbated the neck pain, but also caused pins and needles type sensations down my arms and my legs. At times I was unable to feel my legs and even walking was a task. There was an array of sensations throughout my body that did not feel normal. The last three fingers on both hands had numbness and the pain was getting worse, with limited neck movement. I was introduced to Mr Pereira on recommendation from a friend of a friend at The London Clinic. After the initial consult I was asked to book in an MRI, Mr Pereira tried to help me get this MRI through the NHS as it was urgent but unfortunately due to the pandemic, MRI appointments were scarce. I ended up paying for my scan after an incident where I fell. Within 2 days, Mr Pereira called me with the results and told me I would need to get spinal surgery quite urgently due to a disc prolapse and spinal compression caused by the bungee jump. He kept my best interests in my mind as he contacted his colleagues and submitted me in for emergency surgery within 2 days at St George's Hospital. After the surgery, I saw immediate relief in my legs, and arms. I was finally able to walk without pain and my arms were 90% back to normal. Mr Pereira ensured he saw me through the whole process and aftercare. I am so grateful for his quick action and recommendations, especially considering there was serious risk of paralysis. It's a testament to Mr Pereira and his colleagues/team who dealt with my op. I cannot thank him enough for helping me with this. I would recommend Mr Pereira wholeheartedly. Whether you are seeing him privately or not, he is absolutely committed to helping his patients with optimal results.

pedunculopontine nucleus deep brain stimulation for freezing and falling -in PD Having suffered from Parkinson’s disease for 12 years I Really had reached the end of the road in terms of therapies for my condition : I was fortunate to find Professors Tipu and Erlick who had had experience of this procedure.Having discussed the pros and cons with them I concluded that going ahead was my best option. The odds of achieving a successful result were in my favour and most importantly I had great confidence in the team who would be looking after me. And so it turned out. The pre and post operative care was first class..and pain free.. The symptoms of PD showed a clear improvement in all respects with the exception of initiating movement from a tight location and even here the time taken to get moving was reduced. The electrical equipment was straight forward and not intrusive. At the time of writing my medication of 4 Stalevo daily works well.
