Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Robert Brightwell at Spire include:
General surgery, vascular medicine and endovascular surgery
My commitment to vascular surgery is stronger today than ever. I enjoy the attention to detail required to diagnose the conditions that I treat, as well as formulating and executing bespoke treatment plans for all my patients.
I always ensure that my patients benefit from my highly-specialised training. After graduating from Southampton I undertook my basic surgical training in East Anglia before moving to London. There I undertook research for my Doctorate in Medicine from Imperial College London - sponsored by The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the Stroke Association. Thereafter I completed my specialist training in vascular surgery at national and international centres of excellence, including The Royal Brisbane & Women's Hospital in Queensland, Australia.
As a ‘next generation’ vascular surgeon I have honed my skills in managing venous and arterial disease. I am therefore excellently placed to offer up-to-the-minute management in all vascular disorders including:
Varicose veins – One-stop diagnosis and treatment of varicose veins and their complications. Procedures are frequently performed on a walk-in walk-out basis.
Abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) – I am a proponent of minimally-invasive surgery (EVAR). Applying modern techniques, my patients rarely stay in hospital more than 1 night following this procedure.
Carotid disease – Surgery may be performed to lower the risk of stroke in selected cases. I perform this on a short stay basis.
Vascular reconstruction – I am delighted to offer my patients both endovascular options (angioplasty, stenting) and bypass.

I am married to a hard-working paediatrician and am lucky to have a young son and younger daughter. We enjoy time spent outside and I include gardening, cycling, sailing, shooting and skiing among my hobbies.
As an East Anglian farmers’ son I am delighted to return ‘home’. I love the region’s landscape, people and produce. I look forward to many years of happy service to the region.Back to top
