At 24 years old (October 2004), Alberto graduated in Medicine at the University of Turin, Italy, discussing the first Italian long term results on the endovascular treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms.
His passion for minimally invasive endovascular surgery, made him specialise, at 28 years old (December 2008) in Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, at the University of Turin, with full marks, honours and publication right.
In 2009, he became the youngest permanent Consultant in the Italian NHS, working full time in the Interventional Radiology Department of the “S. Croce e Carle” hospital in Cuneo, Italy, directed by the esteemed Dr. Maurizio Grosso.
In 2012, at 31 years old, he became the first Italian to successfully pass the European Board of Interventional Radiology (EBIR) examination in Vienna.
In 2014, he obtained, with full marks, a 2nd Level University Master degree in Endovascular Techniques (MET) at the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”, with a thesis on the preliminary results of prostatic arteries embolisation in benign prostatic hyperplasia.
On the same year, he registered with the UK General Medical Council, entering the specialist register.
In 2016, seeking an international career, Dr Antonietti decided to move to UK, working as a permanent Consultant Interventional Radiologist, firstly at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, secondly at the The Royal London Hospital.
Between Italy and UK, Dr Alberto Antonietti has performed 8800 procedures as a first operator, including complex embolisations and lower limbs endovascular procedures, being an educational supervisor for IR trainees, lecturing medical students and radiographers, presenting original studies at the main international IR congresses and running live workshops for colleagues.
His particular interest for a pain-free minimally invasive surgery on lower limbs, helped him to develop innovative techniques on local/regional anaesthesia and micro-vascular accesses.
In October 2022, Dr Antonietti decided to join the Whiteley Clinic, to offer to his patients the current state of art, for the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency”.
I do love living life to the fullest and if im not in theatre you can find me enjoying the incredible art and theatre productions in London or running and or cycling in the countryside.
