Why visit your practice?

As vascular surgeons with qualifications and accreditation from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons we are able to offer the full range of treatment options from minimally invasive surgery to open surgery for both arterial and venous disorders. Having specialist qualifications allows us to offer treatment in hospital as well as out of hospital.

What happens on the first visit?

A detailed history and examination is undertaken and an ultrasound is performed. Sometimes additional investigations may be required such as an MRI scan or CT, or more specialised forms of ultrasound. A definitive plan and strategy will be formulated and a letter will be sent to your GP and accessible yourself, with all your results via our patient portal.

What is a vascular ultrasound?

A vascular ultrasound is a non invasive imaging technique used to look at the circulation either in arteries or veins. A vascular sonographer is highly skilled at obtaining accurate imaging to help reach the correct diagnosis.

What is a vascular surgeon?

A vascular surgeon is a doctor who has trained in the full complement of arterial and venous surgery by the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and the Australian and New Zealand Society of Vascular Surgery. The vascular training program is a a highly competitve program where 8-10 individuals are selected per annum in Australia and New Zealand. Once a 5 or 6 year training program is completed they are recognised by Australian Health Practioners Regulation Agency (AHPRA) as a specialist, and are Fellows of The Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS). Many surgeons adopt the historical title of “Miss” Or “Mr” to denote their training in the art of surgery. Although many doctors offer treatment for vascular disorders, most of them are not vascular surgeons due to the highly selective nature and gruelling training program vascular surgeons undertake.
