About me

I am a consultant vascular surgeon specialising in varicose veins and repair of inguinal hernias under local anaesthetic.

I regularly perform keyhole procedures for varicose veins which avoids scars and can be done under local anaesthetic. Techniques I use include laser and radiofrequency treatment of varicose veins and outpatient ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy.

I large part of my work includes treat patients with narrowed arteries which can lead to claudication ( pain on walking), those suffering from mini strokes (TIAs) and patients with aortic aneurysms. I am an expert on EVAR or stenting for aortic aneurysms, a minimally invasive technique which involves inserting stents via the groin arteries to seal an aneurysm.

Areas of interest

*Varicose veins - minimally invasive treatment by laser and foam sclerotherapy

*Treatment of thread veins by microsclerotherapy

*Repair of inguinal hernias under local anaeshetic (awake surgery)

*Aortic aneurysm repair by EVAR (keyhole surgery)

*Carotid disease (narrowed neck arteries)

*Peripheral arterial disease (narrowed arteries in the legs) causing leg pain
