Per Kristian Eide received his Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree from the Faculty of Medicine, University of Bergen in 1989, and in the same year he obtained a Ph.D. in Neurophysiology from the Department of Physiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Bergen, Norway.
Eide is a Professor of Neurosurgery, Head of the Neurovascular Hydrocephalus Research Group, Department of Neurosurgery, University of Oslo School of Medicine, and Senior Consultant Neurosurgeon in the Department of Neurosurgery, Oslo University Hospital – Rikshospitalet.
Eide’s neurosurgical service incorporates cerebrovascular surgery for cerebral aneurysms and vascular malformations, microvascular decompressions for cranial nerve compression syndromes, surgery for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulation disorders, and skull base surgery (tumors and vascular).
Eide’s research activity has a particular interest in the role of the glia-neurovascular interface and its role in brain metabolism. He also studies issues such as neurodegenerative and vascular diseases and CSF disorders, translational studies that address the role of CSF in brain diseases, cerebrospinal fluid circulation and pulsatile pressure, idiopathic intracranial hypertension, applications of MRI applied to CSF and hydrocephalus and type 1 Chiari
