    About

    Mr Rocker is a consultant vascular and endovascular surgeon - he completed his undergraduate training in London and has gained general and vascular training in Wales prior to his endovascular fellowship. 

    He was part of the first endovenous varicose vein treatment in the UK performed and has introduced both endovascular aneurysm repair as well as endovenous vein treatments. He is passionate about patient treatments in a relaxed and friendly environment and believes rapid recovery contributes to reducing stress in having varicose veins treated. Mike is well versed in The Whiteley Protocol, bringing the most up to date varicose veins treatments to his patients.
