Kypros Nicolaides


Kypros Nicolaides

Kypros Nicolaides (born 1953) is an Anglo-Cypriot surgeon, broadcaster and the world's foremost expert in prenatal surgery.

Nicolaides was born in 1953 in Paphos, Cyprus. He studied medicine at King’s College School of Medicine and Dentistry in London and soon after graduation joined the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology in 1980, doing research with Professor Stuart Campbell (Obstetrician and Gynaecologist) and Professor Charles Rodeck as his first assistant, working mainly on fetoscopic techniques and procedures. He was well-known for his manual dexterity at procedures and the Rodeck-Nicolaides team soon produced some very important papers on the use of fetoscopy in the management of a wide range of conditions such Rhesus iso-immunization, fetal hydrops and intrauterine growth restriction, and procedures such as blood and tissue sampling in the diagnosis of single gene defects.

After the departure of Professor Rodeck, Nicolaides became director of the Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine, the first fetal medicine unit in the United Kingdom. His programme of research and teaching made King's College Hospital an important centre of fetal medicine.

He has contributed to over 500 journal articles and more than 30 books and monographs.

Television

The BBC television programme, Life Before Birth is mainly about his work.
