Further Information

Mr Simon Atkins is an expert in the surgical management of trigeminal nerve injuries. Injury to the lingual and inferior alveolar nerves often results in numbness of the tongue and lower lip, and/or painful dysaesthesia. As a result of this many patients are left with debilitating sensory deficits, which can cause difficulty with speech and mastication. Mr Atkins provides the major clinical input to maintain Sheffield as a leading internationally renowned specialist centre for the clinical management of patients with trigeminal nerve injuries, undertaking microsurgical repair of these damaged nerves.
