    Mr. Roberto P Casula is a Consultant Cardiothoracic surgeon at the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London.

Mr. Casula maintains full registration with the GMC (no.: 4003801).

    Mr. Casula has operated on several thousand cardiac patients since performing his first open heart operation in 1990. He is a pioneer in both robotic-enhanced and minimal access cardiac surgery in The UK and is responsible for the robotic cardiac surgical clinical program for the Imperial College. He remains the only practicing robotic cardiac surgeon in the UK.

    "Robotic-enhanced and Minimal access cardiac surgery provides a huge number of benefits for the patient including just a small amount of scarring, less pain (and use of pain killers), a reduced chance of post-operative infection and blood transfusion, and importantly, quicker mobilization speeding along a good physical and emotional recovery" (Mr. Roberto Casula)
