    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    I graduated from University of Bristol Medical School in 1988 and trained in general and vascular surgery at University College London, Sheffield, and Bristol.

    The emphasis of my private practice is the expert treatment of varicose veins. Since 2004 I have embraced and practiced the minimally invasive techniques for treating varicose veins. These endovenous treatments have virtually eliminated the need for groin incision and stripping, leading to significantly improved patient satisfaction and early return to normal activity. This has subsequently been endorsed by NICE guidance CG168 on Varicose Veins: This guideline recommends all varicose veins patients undergo a Duplex Ultrasound Scan to determine the cause treatment with endothermal ablation whenever possible, followed by Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy and only if this was not possible should conventional varicose vein surgery be considered.  This had been my approach for over a decade.

    I also undertake a comprehensive range of arterial vascular operations and transthoracic sympathectomy for excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis).

    Personal profile:

    I am a co-founding director of The Vein Clinic Limited and undertake private practice in Worcestershire at Spire South Bank Hospital.  I have national responsibilities that include acting as Specialist Advisor for their NICE Interventional Procedures Programme where I have advised on several varicose vein procedures including Clarivein and Foam sclerotherapy. I am an elected member of Council of the Venous Forum of the Royal Society of Medicine in London and since 2010 I have been one of its 3 executive officers and the Forum’s Honorary Treasurer.  I have presented and authored on a wide range of vascular subjects and I review papers for a number of international medical journals.

    Outside of work I am a keen follower competitive sport, having previously played rugby, squash and cricket. I am a keen supporter of, and debenture holder, at Worcester Rugby Club. When the weather and my young family permit, I succumb to the challenge of trying to keep a golf ball under control..
