Professor Vassilis Hadjianastassiou (also known as Vass Anastassiou) graduated from the Medical School of the University of Oxford, where he also completed his doctoral thesis in abdominal aortic aneurysms. He holds dual GMC accreditation in General Surgery and Vascular Surgery, having completed his specialist surgical training at the Oxford and London Deaneries. He was appointed Consultant Surgeon at Guy's & St. Thomas' NHS Hospitals in 2008, where he also served as the Clinical Lead for pancreas transplantation. In 2011 he was recruited by the Cyprus Ministry of Health to restructure the system of Organ Transplantation in Cyprus and became the founding Medical Director of Transplantation there. He also served for 2 years as one of the two appointed experts in Vascular Surgery on the Government's Advisory Committee. He currently works at the Royal London Hospital as a full-time Consultant Surgeon (Bart's Health NHS Trust) in vascular surgery, kidney transplantation and general surgery for the renal failure patient population.

He passionately supports continuous medical education and training and has been serving for several years as an examiner for:

(1) the European Diploma of Transplant Surgery (European Board of Surgery) and

(2) for the MRCS award of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Since 2013 he has held the post of full Clinical Professor of Surgery of the University of Nicosia Medical School. He has given numerous lectures in international meetings and has a significant number of scientific publications.

With his dual specialisation and more than 15 years' Consultant grade surgical experience in the broad anatomical fields of general & vascular surgery, in complex laparoscopic techniques and in organ transplantation, he is competent and effective in managing a large spectrum of conditions in vascular and general surgery.

Above all, Professor Hadjianastassiou adopts a humanistic approach and views patients as individuals, with their own families, jobs and personal priorities.
