Mr Bicknell specialises in the full range of vascular conditions that require surgical and medical attention, including aortic, carotid artery, upper limb arterial, and lower limb arterial, lymphatic and venous disease. He has particular interests in aneurysm repair and minimally invasive (keyhole) therapies, including aneurysms and laser vein surgery. He also has a large practice in thoracic outlet syndrome.
Mr Bicknell is active in research, and he also explored the advantages of robotic endovascular catheters in the vascular tree, which has led to the world’s first trials of vascular robotics in man. His research interests also include examination of methods to reduce error in vascular surgery procedures, leading to the initiation of a unique team training programme at Imperial. He has run several large-scale clinical trials in the field of aortic disease treatment.
