Official Expert for the New England Journal of Medicine

It is an honour and a pleasure to be invited to be an ‘official expert’ for the New England Journal of Medicine – the leading academic medical journal in the world. It is very gratifying to be recognised in this way and to participate in online discussions about the latest research with colleagues around the world. Discussion and debate about academic research is a vital to evaluate medical advances to ensure patients benefit from the latest techniques and it is a great privilege to participate in the process at the highest level.

Sharing Clarivein technique insights in Athens

I have recently returned from Athens where I participated in the annual conference of the International Society for Vascular Surgery. I updated the conference on my latest results of the Clarivein technique for the treatment of varicose veins. I have one of the largest series of patients treated with this technique in the world so delegates were keen to hear my insights in using this excellent local anaesthetic walk-in walk-out method.

Once again it was extremely beneficial to learn about the latest advances in vascular surgery and exchange views and opinions from colleagues around the world. The ISVS attracts surgeons and specialists from all around the globe and I had some very interesting discussions with surgeons from China, USA, Brazil, Australia, France, Italy, Albania, Germany and of course Greece.

The photograph shows me at the Faculty table at the annual dinner with my good friend Professor Alan Dardik from Yale University, USA and President of the ISVS with Alan’s family including his father Herbert Dardik one of the leading pioneers of vascular surgery.
