Mr Livio Di Mascio

Honorary Senior Lecturer at QMUL

I was born and raised in London and attended Worth Abbey School in West Sussex. I was a very keen sportsman but this gave way to a career in medicine. I am married and have two young boys who take up most of my time outside of work.

I graduated from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in 1999 and completed my basic surgical training on the Royal Free Hospital Training Rotation. I obtained my Fellowship in Surgery in 2004 before working as a Trauma Fellow at the Royal London Hospital.

In 2005, I entered higher surgical training in Trauma and Orthopaedics on the prestigious Percival Pott training program and trained in hospitals including Barts and the London, Princess Alexandra Harlow, the Norfolk and Norwich and the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital. During this time I gained experience and expertise in all areas of general and high energy orthopaedic trauma and expertise in elective upper limb and hand disorders. I also obtained valuable experience whilst working in the Peripheral Nerve Injury Unit at Stanmore.

I completed a one year fellowship in the Brisbane Upper Limb and Hand Unit in Australia.   It was here that I developed my expertise in upper limb arthroscopic techniques, complex arthroplasty and elective and traumatic disorders of the upper limb including soft tissue reconstruction and microsurgery. The Princess Alexandra Hospital is the tertiary referral centre for complex upper limb orthopaedics serving a geographical area equivalent to that of Western Europe but has a similar demographic of care to the Royal London. I learnt techniques in minimally invasive and arthroscopic reconstruction in shoulder and elbow surgery and also complex revision and reverse geometry shoulder arthroplasty surgery. I also learnt cutting edge techniques in small bone arthroplasty and motion preserving reconstructive surgery for degenerate disease.
