Mr Zahid Raza
MB ChB (Dundee), FRCS(Ed), FRCS(Gen)
My NHS and private work is purely vascular. This includes arterial reconstruction and venous surgery work. My special interests include varicose veins, renal access (fistulas) under local anaesthesia and major arterial work including distal bypass for limb salvage. I have had extensive training in vascular surgery at Dundee, Edinburgh and Hull prior to my current consultant appointment at the New Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh.
