Clinical Practice & Experience

Mr Rashid is currently appointed as a Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at the Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI) and has been Clinical Lead since 2021. Having received training in all the common forms of vascular surgery, Mr Rashid went on to be a Fellow in Australia learning advanced endovascular and vascular techniques with a particular focus on diabetic foot disease and limb salvage.

Clinical Interests

Mr Rashid has an interest in all aspects of vascular surgery particularly minimally invasive techniques, including percutaneous EVAR and tumescence-free endovenous ablation. He has a particular focus in limb preservation and diabetic foot disease with complex, ultra-distal re-vascularisation using both open surgical and endovascular techniques. He has developed the most comprehensive MDT Limb Preservation and Foot Service in the North-West of England to include complex foot surgery, coordinated offloading and advanced wound management techniques.

Research Interests

Mr Rashid has both clinical and laboratory-based research interests. His basic science research was in regenerative medicine having completed a PhD in tissue engineering, a post-doctoral lectureship in endothelial progenitor stem cells and more recently the role of progenitor stem cells in diabetes and peripheral arterial disease. In addition to this, he has also undertaken clinical research in venous, renovascular and aneurysm disease. His current focus is on trials to improve wound healing in neuroischaemic and diabetic foot disease.
