Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Simon Payne at Spire include:
My particular interests within vascular surgery are venous disease (ranging from thread vein treatment through to managing venous ulcers) and carotid surgery for stroke prevention. I also perform duplex 4D scanning for varicose veins which is a dynamic assessment of the vein’s function in real time.
I pioneered awake carotid artery surgery locally and lead a team of Vascular Surgeons and Anaesthetists who have achieved world class results at Portsmouth Hospitals.
I am one of nine venous specialists on Spire Healthcare's national advisory panel for treatment of varicose veins and a board member of the British Association of Sclerotherapists (bassclerotherapy.com).
I qualified from Leicester University Medical School in 1986, and trained in vascular and general surgery in Oxford, Sydney, Leicester and Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
My research into colour duplex scanning in venous disease and varicose veins led to my MD thesis. I have published and presented over thirty research papers on Vascular Surgery - the majority being on venous disease. I was appointed Consultant Vascular and General Surgeon to Portsmouth Hospitals in 1998 at the age of 34.
Recent developments in services include 4D duplex scanning for varicose veins. I offer this real time dynamic assessment which will show you on the screen how the veins in your leg are working. The assessment is just like a "baby scan" and if you choose treatment, then you can select a bespoke approach, tailored to your individual results.

I grew up on the south coast, in the heart of the New Forest and now live in Fareham. Outside surgery I nurture my childrens' interests in sailing horse riding and dance. When time permits, I indulge in my own passions of playing the piano and sailing the Solent and south coast on 'La Mouette'.Back to top
