    About

    Mr Mital Desai is a consultant vascular and endovascular surgeon based at The Harley Street Clinic, London. His NHS practice is at St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and he is also a Clinical Senior Lecturer at St George's University of London. His clinical interests include lower extremity arterial disease, aortic aneurysms, carotid artery disease and TIAs/stroke, diabetic foot management, venous disease (including varicose veins and post-thrombotic limb), and cardiovascular risk management. He specialises in walk-in, walk-out procedures for varicose veins and leg ulcers and uses minimally invasive procedures such as radiofrequency ablation and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy.


    Mr Desai gained his medical qualifications in India in 2003 and went on to complete higher surgical training, recognised by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He moved to the UK in 2006 and spent a year training in vascular surgery at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester. Following this, he moved to London where he completed an MD in basic science vascular research developing novel aortic stent-grafts for endovascular repair. He has won several grants and fellowship awards for his work in this area. Mr Desai then gained entry to a highly competitive clinical academic training programme funded by the National Institute for Health Research. He later completed a post-CCT fellowship at St Thomas’ Hospital, London gaining advanced endovascular training in aortic, lower extremity arterial and deep venous disease before joining St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


    Mr Desai is dedicated to medical education and has supervised both MSc and PhD students. He has also mentored several students during their general surgery placements and gained an educational fellowship at the London Postgraduate School of Surgery. He has also published numerous peer-reviewed papers and has presented his work at many conference lectures.


    Mr Desai's interests outside of the hospital include travel, cooking, contemporary Indian music, and sports.
