David Hilton-Jones

Consultant Neurologist

  • Honorary Senior Lecturer


David Hilton-Jones qualified in medicine from Cambridge University and trained in Neurology in Oxford, London and Montreal. His abiding interest in neuromuscular disorders was initially triggered by working with John Morgan-Hughes (Queen Square) and cemented by working with George Karpati in Montreal. He runs a multidisciplinary team providing a clinical service for patients with neuromuscular disorders. His specific interest in myasthenia gravis resulted from his collaboration with John Newsom-Davis in Oxford, from whom he took over management of the Oxford Myasthenia Centre.
