Ferdinand Serracino-Inglott was one of the first of a new generation of vascular surgeons to embrace minimally invasive techniques in the management of vascular disease. His NHS practice is based at Manchester Royal Infirmary. He revolutionised the treatment of vascular disease in Greater Manchester, introducing branched and fenestrated stent-grafts to treat complex aneurysms of the aorta, remote endarterectomy for the minimally invasive treatment of blocked arteries in the leg to prevent amputations and out-patient treatment of varicose veins. Mr Serracino-Inglott is also active in vascular research. He sits on the editorial board of the Annals of Vascular Surgery.
Ferdinand introduced the VNUS procedure to Spire Manchester and revolutionised the treatment of varicose veins at this hospital. He transformed the treatment of varicose veins from an in-patient procedure under a general anaesthetic with a painful protracted recovery to a minimally invasive treatment performed under local anaesthetic, as an out-patient procedure followed by a rapid, painless recovery.
