Mr baithwaite has been treating my varicose veins for a period of around ten years now. I have had various procedures varying from removal of the Viens, radio frequency and varicofoam. We have found the varicofoam an effective treatment in the ongoing problems in my legs. I would highly recommend mr braithwaite for his professionalism and expertise in this field and the excellent rapour built up between patient and surgeon.

Professor Bruce Braithwaite

Thank you for the feedback on your experiences and for recommending foam sclerotherapy.

I have seen Bruce B and his staff on numerious occassions over the years and he (and them) have always done a great job in helping me to get better circulatiion in my legs and help clear up sometimes very painful ulcers. On my last visit in Sept 19 when BB gave me the all clear and the ulcer had cleared up i had just come back from Spain on the Friday - I saw BB on the following Morday evening when BB gave me the good news removing all my bandages but on the Tuesday morning at 2.00am i woke up in pain and my right leg was swollen. I made the mistake of putting up withe it even being in pain. eventually my wife rang the dtr, a new trainee came out to see me about a week later diagoised Celulitis and gave me a 7 day course to take. Unfortunetely i got a lot worse and its daft now to say it but i stopped going to the toilet, eating and drinking and I was out of it. Pauline insuisteda dtr came to see me and id got sepsis all my body was shutting down. I was in intensive care nearly 3 days, told my wife id got a 40 % chance of living but i survived and was in hospital another couple of weeks, out of it for the first week or so but eventually learnt to move and walk again and im so happy to be alive..

Informative, friendly and efficient. Having my varicose vein operation has given me a 'new lease of life '. I've had thread vein treatment on my legs also and I'm very happy with the results.

Professor Bruce Braithwaite

Thank you. It is helpful to know that the comprehensive information we supply our patients before and after treatment is appreciated.

Excellent from start to finish. Mr. Braithwaite is a lovely man who put me at ease right from my first consultation where my varicose veins were assessed and examined. I was offered various procedures to remove my unsightly dilemma and everything was explained to help me make my choice of surgery. After i had made my decision, i was offered another appointment to have an in-depth ultra sound scan which looked deep into my leg. My final appointment was for the surgery itself, i was very nervous and hesitant as i had decided to have the surgery performed under local anaesthetic instead of general anaesthetic but i was made to feel at ease and relaxed. The actual procedure itself is not at all pleasant but i am so pleased that i had it done and the results are amazing. Gone are the unsightly veins and also all of the pain that went with them. All in all i am extremely happy with my experience and i would highly recommend Bruce Braithwaite and his excellent assistant.

Professor Bruce Braithwaite

Thank you for explaining how you felt about the carefully designed pathway that we have developed. Your comments about local anaesthetic walk-in-walk out vein treatment should be helpful to other patients who are considering making an appointment with us.
