Mr Richard Ashpole
Entrepreneurial neurosurgeon Mr Richard Ashpole has a successful sideline in designing surgical instruments.
In addition to my usual duties as a consultant neurosurgeon at Queen’s Medical Centre, Nottingham (QMC), I have a longstanding and entirely amateur interest in designing and developing neurosurgical instruments and other ‘bits of kit’.
My first foray into this field was as a junior registrar when I designed, and had made, a set of instruments to assemble all manner of ventriculo-peritoneal shunt systems by a non-touch technique. These were patented, and then manufactured and distributed in conjunction with a UK company.
