Medical and Surgical Training
Livio graduated from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine in 1999 and completed his basic surgical training on the Royal Free Hospital Training Rotation. He obtained his Fellowship in Surgery in 2004 before working as a Trauma Fellow at the Royal London Hospital.
In 2005, Livio 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 he gained experience and expertise in all areas of general and high energy orthopaedic trauma and expertise in elective upper limb and hand disorders. He also obtained valuable experience whilst working in the Peripheral Nerve Injury Unit at Stanmore.
In 2009 Livio obtained his Fellowship in Trauma and Orthopaedics from the Royal College of Surgeons and was placed on the Specialist Register in 2011. On his return to the UK in 2011 he joined the Barts and London as Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
Specialist Fellowship Training
Livio completed a one year fellowship in the Brisbane Upper Limb and Hand Unit in Australia. It was here he developed his 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. He learnt techniques in minimally invasive and arthroscopic reconstruction in shoulder and elbow surgery and also complex revision and reverse geometry shoulder arthroplasty surgery. He also learnt cutting edge techniques in small bone arthroplasty and motion preserving reconstructive surgery for degenerate disease.
Current Consultant Position
Livio is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at St Bartholomew's and Royal London teaching hospital. He joined the department in August 2011 on his return from Australia. Much of Livio’s upper limb practice is day-stay surgery and as such he has taken the lead within the department at the new Royal London site’s Ambulatory Care And Discharge (ACAD) unit within the department. He is also is the departmental lead in Upper Limb Orthopaedic Services and has a particular interest in complex shoulder arthroplasty, arthroscopic shoulder reconstruction, sports injuries, traumatic and degenerate disorders of the wrist and hand, and motion preservation in degenerate disease.
