Por qué es un doctor de primer nivel/Professional statement/Perché è un dottore di prim’ordine

Mr Stephen Black is one of the leading consultant vascular surgeons in London, specialising in deep vein thrombosis (DVT), May-Thurner Syndrome and varicose veins, among others. He was responsible for establishing and leading the Deep Venous Reconstruction service at St George's Hospital, which quickly became one of the largest of its kind in Europe, offering relief to patients suffering from acute and chronic DVT.

Mr Black is a key surgeon at various clinics in the London area (including Harley Street Clinic, London and Ashtead Hospital, Surrey), and is the lead for venous and lymphoedema surgery at St Thomas' Hospital. He holds several prominent positions in various vascular surgery organizations, including being on the committee for the European Venous Forum Hands On Workshop (EVF HOW) and is a programme director for the annual Charing Cross Vascular Symposium - one of the largest meetings of its type in the world. He was awarded the fellowship of the European Board of Vascular Surgery in 2011.

Throughout his stellar career in vascular surgery, Mr Black has always been at the cutting edge of his field. After graduating from the University of the Witwatersrand Medical School in 1998, and working in South Africa for two years, Mr Black moved to the UK, where he completed a doctorate (MD) at St Mary's Hospital and Imperial College, London in 2006. His thesis was on the virtual reality-based training of surgeons to perform carotid surgery - research focussed on improving the safety and efficiency of surgical training, and supervised by Mr John Wolfe and Lord Ara Darzi.
