Mr Luca Lancerotto
Consultant Plastic and Hand surgeon
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.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Luca Lancerotto at Spire include:
British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH)
British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS)
Consultant Plastic and Hand Surgeon, Department of Plastic surgery and Lothian Hand Unit, St. John’s Hospital, NHS Lothian.
Honorary senior clinical lecturer, University of Edinburgh.
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.
