Personal profile

Kuan Kho studied Medicine and Psychology in Nijmegen. Initially working as a researcher in neuropsychology, he was involved in clinical work and served as a neurosurgical resident at the University Medical Center Utrecht (Utrecht, NL), Haaglanden Medisch Centrum (The Hague, NL), and University Hospitals Leuven, (Leuven, B) always combining his background in neuropsychology with clinical neurosurgery. In 2014 he was appointed as a consultant neurosurgeon at Medisch Spectrum Twente (Enschede, NL). His main focus is functional neurosurgery and intra-operative neuromonitoring (deep brain stimulation, vagus nerve stimulation, awake craniotomies)

Research interests

A student of brain-behaviour relationships, Kuan Kho recognizes that patients with brain lesions and neurosurgical procedures may provide rare opportunities to study this in detail. As a clinician he is interested in the use of implants for restoring neural function or for invasive recording of brain signals for diagnosis. Research questions come from his daily work in consulting and operating on patients with cerebral or spinal disorders, and research includes the use of continuous recording of EEG and Deep Brain signals in epilepsy patients to learn about the cerebral connections underlying disease and cognitive functions.
