Dr Nor Faizal Ahmad Bahuri graduated in Medicine (2002), and in General Surgery (2008) from University of Malaya. In late 2010, he went to University of Oxford to study neural signal processing and central pain network under the supervision of Professor Tipu Z Aziz and Professor Alex L Green and was awarded DPhil in 2016. After his neurosurgical training, Dr Nor Faizal focuses his neurosurgical practice in paediatric neurosurgery and interventional neurosurgical pain management.
Dr Nor Faizal is passionate about paediatric neurosurgery and he decided to provide care in managing children with neurosurgical problems such as hydrocephalus, spina bifida and tumours in the brain and spine. He also manages craniofacial deformities such as Crouzon, Pfieffer and Apert syndrome together with maxillofacial surgeons.
Managing children with neurological problems are challenging, and it demands many sacrifices. Dr Nor Faizal truly understand the predicament of the parents and the carer. He firmly believes that this difficult journey is best taken together with the parents and family, for the best interest of the sick child.
The higher neurosurgical training at Oxford University has mould Dr Nor Faizal's perspective in neurosurgery, especially concerning chronic neuropathic pain management. He strongly feels that nobody should be suffering from pain and he believes that everyone deserves to be pain-free, even to live for another day. Dr Nor Faizal treats chronic pain conditions such as chronic migraines, atypical facial pain, trigeminal neuralgia, as well as chronic neck and back pain. He also treats failed back surgery syndrome, which is an entity where patients suffer from persistent back pain despite multiple back surgeries. An epidurolysis or spinal cord stimulation may help to control the pain and reclaim the freedom of movement.
A neurosurgeon who specialises in treating chronic neuropathic pain is uniquely qualified to provide a wide range of treatments for medically intractable pain. Dr Nor Faizal offers minimally invasive procedures for chronic pain management and nerve stimulator implantation for more complex cases.
