Mr Ales Aliashkevich is a highly skilled neurosurgeon, specialising in the minimally invasive surgical treatment of conditions involving brain, spine and peripheral nerves. His conservative philosophy aims to avoid surgery whenever possible by non-operative treatment in first line. However, when all therapy options are exhausted, ‘keyhole’-type interventions can provide a better solution than traditional open surgery. His experience in minimally invasive neurosurgery and more recent decade of developing image-guided and robotic strategies have proven the validity of this approach. Spinal fusions are increasingly replaced by motion-preserving interventions, which achieve faster return to normal activities and provide higher level of patient satisfaction in long term.
He started regularly assisting in neurosurgical theatre in 1991 and has accomplished his basic neurosurgical training at The Research Institute of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Physiotherapy and the Republican Center of Microsurgery in Minsk, Belarus in 1995. In 1997, he received the degree of Doctor of Medicine with a grade "magna cum laude" by the Rhine Friedrich-Wilhelms University of Bonn, Germany, for the work in the field of epilepsy surgery. He completed his neurosurgical specialist training in Bonn, and was awarded a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training (CCST) by the Specialist Training Authority (STA) of Royal College of Surgeons, United Kingdom. In 2008 he was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons.
Mr Aliashkevich has accomplished Cerebrovascular Fellowship in the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He has published numerous clinical and scientific papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and presented at international meetings.
Mr Aliashkevich has worked as a Consultant Neurosurgeon in Wellington, New Zealand, from 2005 till 2011 and was appointed as a Senior Clinical Senior Lecturer at the University of Otago, Wellington. Since 2012 he is appointed as a Consultant Neurosurgeon at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.
