His practice includes the management of many vascular conditions. When treating patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms, he undertakes both open and endovascular (EVAR) procedures. He regularly manages patients who have suffered strokes or transient ischaemic attacks (TIA’s), investigating for the presence of carotid artery disease, and performing carotid endarterectomy procedures when this is deemed appropriate according to national guidelines. A significant proportion of his practice is the management of peripheral vascular disease, managing patients who experience symptoms of intermittent claudication, and those who suffer with more severe symptoms, such as rest pain and leg ulcers.

He has much experience in treating patients with varicose veins. He undertakes a large number of procedures each year for the treatment of varicose veins, using both laser (EVLT / EVLA) and radiofrequency (RFA) ablation techniques, as well as ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and endovenous adhesive closure techniques. He strives to tailor the varicose vein treatments to best suit each individual patient, thus aiming for the best possible outcomes.
