Richard Mannion is a consultant neurosurgeon at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. He trained as a neurosurgeon in Cambridge then completed a fellowship in open and endoscopic skullbase surgery in Brisbane, Australia in 2008/2009.

Since being appointed as a consultant in Cambridge, he has specialised in tumours of the skullbase and pituitary region. He works very closely with Robert Macfarlane in neurosurgery, as well as Patrick Axon, Neil Donnelly and James Tysome in ENT to provide the best surgical care to patients with skullbase tumours.

He is a core member of the East Anglian region skulllbase MDT meeting (twice monthly), where all patients with skullbase tumours are discussed with colleagues in Neuro-oncology and Neuro-radiology. Richard is part of a group that is actively involved in research on skullbase tumours, and the results from these studies are regularly presented at national and international meetings.
