Marco Scarci, MD

Department of Thoracic Surgery, University College London Hospital, London, UK

Dr. Scarci undertook his specialist training in Italy, Malta, Essex Cardiothoracic Centre and Guy's and St Thomas. He spent six months between University of Toronto and McMaster University for a fellowship in minimally invasive surgery. Dr. Scarci’s practice is in pure thoracic surgery. He works closely with a large team including other surgeons, specialist nurses, radiologists and physicians to provide together with them the best outcome for patients. His key focus is minimally invasive surgery.

Most of Dr. Scarci’s work is now performed through single port approach after visiting Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas, a pioneer in this type of approach.

He is currently chairing the ESTS chest wall and pleural disease working group and leading on the development of the European Chest Wall Database.

Dr. Scarci is also a member of the UK National Institute for Clinical Excellence preoperative tests working group.

For the past two years he has been the director of the Cambridge International VATS Symposium, an annual event where faculty and delegates from all over the world meet to discuss the latest development in minimally invasive surgery.
