Mr Lukla Biasi is an experienced vascular and endovascular surgeon with a dedicated commitment to the sub-specialties of lower limb revascularisation, carotid surgery and superficial vein surgery.

Lukla graduated with distinguished honours from the University of Bologna, Italy. Following a research fellowship at St Georges’ Vascular Institute in London, he completed the specialist training at the University Hospital of Parma, Italy, where he was appointed as consultant vascular surgeon in 2009.

Lukla moved to the UK in 2014 for a clinical-research fellowship on complex lower limb revascularisation at St. Thomas’ Hospital, London. He was awarded an International PhD-Doctor Europaeus- “summa cum laude” for his academic achievements.  Mr Biasi has published on national and international peer-reviewed journals and is reviewer for the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery(EJVS) and the Journal of Vascular Endovascular Surgery(VES).
