Mr Luca Lancerotto

Consultant Plastic and Hand surgeon


Specialises in

I graduated with honours in 2007 at the University of Padova, Italy, where I then trained as a Plastic and Hand surgeon until 2014.

In 2015 I was awarded a scholarship by the European Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic surgeons at the University of Helsinki, Finland, before moving to Edinburgh as a fellow for further training.

In 2017 I undertook a six-month fellowship in Microsurgery/Lower limb reconstruction in Bristol, before being offered a Consultant post in Edinburgh in February 2018 as a Consultant Plastic and Hand surgeon at St John’s Hospital.

My private practice reflects my NHS activity. My primary focus is hand surgery, in particular Dupuytren’s disease and compressive neuropathies which I enjoy for the degree of finesse required, but maintain a broader interest in soft tissue reconstructions.

I have complemented my surgical career with an extensive involvement in anatomical, basic science and clinical research, including as a research fellow at Brigham and Women’s Hospital / Harvard Medical School in Boston, United States, which has led to many publications in peer-reviewed journals, awards and research grants, and a PhD title from the University of Padova.

I love art and the great outdoors, and find Edinburgh a perfect base for both of these. I enjoy running and cycling, am a keen skier and sailor – which I don’t do enough - and keep busy studying art and attempting to paint.
