Why I will be offering ClariVein to my patients

After recently returning from a fact-finding mission in New York, I am delighted to announce that I am now offering the ClariVein treatment to my patients.

I am aware that I am one of the first surgeons in the whole of the UK to offer the cutting-edge technology and I can promise patients I will sit down with them and explain the whole procedure before moving forward.

The New York visit was both fascinating and insightful. I was invited, along with Beverley Hills vein surgeon Wayne Gradman, to go to the Big Apple and experience first-hand training in the new treatment from respected American surgeon, Professor Steve Elias.

To be able to see such a surgeon at work was great and allowed me to witness first-hand the benefits of ClariVein – something I wanted to do before offering the technique to patients in the UK.

I spoke with people who had benefited from ClariVein and they all said they were impressed with the simplicity of the technique and the lack of discomfort, both during and after.

In my opinion, ClariVein further simplifies the treatment of varicose veins.

As well as needing less local anaesthetic, it is even less invasive than current treatments due to the use of a special catheter which combines mechanical and chemical energy to seal off the problem vein.

For more information visit our special ClariVein page which also includes a special factsheet on the technique.

Alternatively, I am always on hand to answer any questions you might have by calling 01223 305858.

Continuing the Transatlantic theme, I was delighted to be able to recently give a lecture to professors and other doctors from Yale Medical School as part of the Cambridge-Yale Research Collaboration. Held at Trinity Hall College, my lecture was on my research into the mechanism of blood pressure control during carotid artery surgery.
