Vascular surgery is a specialty of surgery, which treats diseases of arteries and veins (the vascular system), through medical therapy, minimally-invasive operations, and surgical reconstruction.

Our team of experienced vascular surgeons, with over 30 years of experience between them, are supported by a professional medical team, all dedicated to achieving professional results, whilst offering the highest level of patient care. At all stages, we want you to feel fully informed about your surgery choices so that you can make the right decision for you and be rest assured that you are in the best possible hands.

ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy

Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is a highly specialised procedure for treating advanced varicose veins hidden beneath the skin. The procedure involves injecting a sclerosant solution (a medicine, which makes vessels shrink) into the abnormal veins using ultrasound to guide the injections. This causes the vein wall to collapse and the body eventually absorbs the veins. This technique is very safe and effective.

endovenous laser treatment

EVLT (EndoVenous Laser Treatment) is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. A probe is inserted into the affected vein, which then sends laser energy inside and along the length of the vein. This energy damages the vein, shrinking it closed so that blood can no longer flow through it. Blood is then rerouted into other healthy veins in the leg. EVLT requires no downtime, but bandages and compression stockings may be worn for up to three weeks after treatment.

carotid angioplasty

There is one carotid artery on either side of the neck and these can become blocked with fatty build up. Carotid angioplasty (with or without stenting) is the surgical procedure used to open up these blocked arteries. Angioplasty is a minimally-invasive procedure carried out to improve blood flow in the body’s arteries and veins. It involves making an incision in the groin area and inserting a balloon-tipped catheter into the artery or vein up to where the blood vessel is blocked. The balloon is then inflated to open the blood vessel and the catheter then removed.

carotid stenting

During angioplasty (see carotid angioplasty above), a small mesh tube or a stent may be placed permanently in the newly opened artery or vein to ensure that it remains open. There are two types of stents used – bare stents (wire mesh) and covered stents (also commonly called stent grafts).

carotid endarterectomy

Carotid endarterectomy is an older method than carotid angioplasty but it is still an effective way to treat narrowed or blocked arteries. It involves the surgical removal of part of the inner lining of the blocked artery, along with any obstructive deposits such as fatty plaques.

endovascular aortic repair

Endovascular aortic repair is a type of vascular surgery used to treat problems in the aorta, such as abdominal aortic aneurysm (localised enlargement of the aorta). It is a more common technique than open aortic repair and involves placing a stent graft into the aorta.

ambulatory phlebectomy

This surgical procedure for the treatment of varicose veins removes superficial veins through small, slit-like incisions in the skin and is generally carried out as an outpatient procedure.

thoracoscopic sympathectomy

This procedure is used to treat facial blushing, focal hyperhidrosis and more commonly, palmar hyperhidrosis or ‘sweaty palms’. It involves surgically destroying part of the sympathetic nerve trunk in the thoracic region of the body, disrupting nerve signals in this area.
