Dr Peter Pang is a neurosurgeon specialising in spine, skull base and neurovascular surgery, especially stroke prevention and treatment

Dr Pang’s main interest in neurosurgery is stroke particularly prophylactic endovascular treatment for cerebral aneurysms and intracranial & extracranial vascular stenosis. From 2003, Dr Pang concentrated on minimally invasive skull base neurosurgery for tumour and neurovascular microsurgery and neuroendoscopy and minimally invasive endovascular treatment for stroke prevention and treatment.

Dr Pang graduated from the Medical Faculty of the University of Hong Kong in 1992. He did most of his neurosurgery training at Kwong Wah and Princess Margaret Hospitals in Hong Kong. In 2001, he did his fellowship in skull base, vascular and spine surgery in Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston of Massachusetts, and Barrow Neurological Institute of St Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix of Arizona.

In 2003, Dr Pang was awarded Fellowship in neurosurgery from the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine. He further broadened his knowledge by completing Interventional therapeutic Neuroradiology fellowship in Bicêtre Hospital, Paris in 2008.
