Mr James Scurr
Consultant Vascular Surgeon
BSc, MB BS, MD, FRCS
I am a consultant surgeon in vascular and endovascular surgery with a specific interest in venous disorders, including deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins.
I trained at University College London and the Middlesex Hospitals' School of Medicine, qualifying in 2000. In 2004, I moved to the North West to continue my higher surgical training at the Mersey School of Surgery. From 2005 to 2007 I was the Endovascular Research Fellow at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital and was awarded a doctorate of medicine by the University of Liverpool for my research into fenestrated endovascular aneurysm repair.
I am widely published in medical periodicals and textbooks and am a frequent presenter at national and international conferences. In 2010, I was the Liverpool and North West Society of Surgeons' travelling Fellow to the Gonda Vascular Centre at the Mayo Clinic (Minnesota, USA) at the invitation of Professor P Gloviczki. In 2012, I was awarded the American College of Phlebology's International Scholarship.

I was awarded a Royal Air Force flying scholarship in 1993 and have flown a variety of fixed wing aeroplanes and helicopters since then. I am a member of the Royal Air Squadron and the Honourable Company of Air Pilots. Though a busy clinical practice, young family and the English weather all limits my chances of getting airborne these days!
