At NeuroNav we aspire to democratise access to neuronavigation

We aim to cause a paradigm shift towards accurate, portable, and more affordable solutions to enable access to safer neurosurgery for all. By 2025, we aim to cover all surgical specialties.

Our technology is developed with the NHS but deployable worldwide. Knowing how much neurosurgical practice depends on the availability of equipment, we want to augment surgical performance and improve patient outcomes.

Our mission is to develop platforms that employ advanced state-of-the-art stereoscopic vision whilst harnessing the power of computer vision and machine learning. 



We are committed to continuous improvement and strive to provide hospitals with clever technology that drastically improves the neurosurgical navigation workflow.


We are driven to minimise risks and provide better outcomes for patients.


We aim to augment the tool set, performance, and vision of neurosurgeons globally, especially those in developing countries.


Being founded by a neurosurgical resident, we know that time and efficiency are critical, so we drive transformation without disruption.


Ali Rezaei Haddad

Founder, CEO & the driving force behind NeuroNav

Ali is a neurosurgical resident in London and an NHS Clinical Entrepreneur. Prior to this, he completed his Academic Foundation Training in the Medical Sciences Division at the University of Oxford undertaking research in the field of neuroimaging. He graduated with first class honours in Neurosciences BSc at Imperial College London, and he holds honorary research positions at the University of Oxford and St George’s Medical School. Ali co-founded the internationally acclaimed GoodSAM app used by the NHS, in which clinically trained individuals sign up as volunteers to respond to life-threatening emergency calls. He also directed and curated the Imagining the Future of Medicine at the Royal Albert Hall in partnership with TEDMED, attended by a live audience of 5,000 people. Inspired by the lack of user friendly and affordable neuronavigation solutions worldwide, he founded NeuroNav to democratise access to neurosurgery navigation solutions.
