Graham Flint is a consultant neurosurgeon at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, in the UK. In addition to running a busy general neurosurgical practice he has, for the past 15 years, run the specialist syringomyelia clinic there, which was established by the late Bernard Williams. He has accumulated extensive clinical experience in the management of syringomyelia and its related disorders in the adult population. Dr. Flint works closely with patient support groups and, in co-operation with the Ann Conroy Trust, established a network of syringomyelia specialists in the UK. With this group he organised the international symposium Syringomyelia 2007, held in Rugby, UK. This was the predecessor of Syringomyelia 2010, held in Berlin. In addition to studying the outcome of surgical treatments for syringomyelia, he has a particular interest in the disturbances of CSF physiology that underlie the disorder. He has applied well-established physiological methods, used to measure disturbances of CSF circulation in general, to the study of syringomyelia in humans.
