Mr Luke Cascarini
I am a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (Mouth, Jaw and Face Surgeon) and a Head and Neck Surgeon. That means I treat problems in the face, jaw and mouth using a variety of surgical and non-surgical techniques.
My first appointment as a Consultant Surgeon was within the North West London NHS Hospital Trust in 2009. By then I had already completed 20 years of training. Since then I have done more training and have grown my expertise to include:
- Trans-oral robotic surgery (TORS) – using robotic techniques to operate on the back of the mouth and/or the throat.
- Temporomandibular joint surgery – surgery on the jaw joint, including jaw joint replacement.
- Electrochemotherapy – palliative care.

My current work
My role in the NHS is as a Consultant Oral and Maxillofacial, Head and Neck Surgeon at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. I am a core member of the South East London Head and Neck Cancer Multi-disciplinary Team which provides cancer treatment for a population of 2.5 million people in the region.
For private patients I hold clinics at several leading centres in central London and South East London.
Writing and communicating about my work is an important part of training others and I have authored to several text books as well as various book chapters. I regularly present to national and international audiences in my field of expertise and I have contributed to a large number of research papers in peer-reviewed journals.
