Mr Bruce Braithwaite is an experienced Senior Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon, with a wealth of over 29 years of experience in treating patients with varicose veins and various other vascular conditions. Mr Braithwaite works both privately and for the NHS, and is the founder of the private practice "Veincare".
He has been a Consultant Vascular Surgeon since 2000, after completing his specialist training in Cambridge, Oxford, London and even in the USA. In the past 10 years, Mr Braithwaite has treated over 3000 patients with varicose veins and other conditions in his private practice. Not to mention the many others he has treated as part of his service to the NHS, where he also established the venous service as part of the Circle Treatment Centre, Europe's largest day case facility.
He is widely acknowledged as an expert in local anaesthesia and varicose vein treatment. In order to spare his patients from having to return for further procedures, Mr Braithwaite strives to treat all of the varicose veins in a single session. What's more, he offers a similar service for patients requiring, or wishing, to have their treatments under general anaesthetic or sedation as a day case of overnight.
Mr Braithwaite is always on hand to advise other consultants on how best to treat people with varicose veins and deep venous disease. He has also treated many of his medical colleagues, thanks to his reputation for giving an expert opinion, using an evidence-based approach and only advising to perform a procedure when absolutely necessary.
Mr Braithwaite is also an active researcher in the field of vascular surgery, having led the team that established the Olympus RFiTT keyhole technique. Owing to his meaningful contribution to research in varicose vein treatment, Mr Braithwaite's work has been recommended by NICE as guidance to optimise treatment. He is also affiliated with a number of professional societies and organisations. He is Clinical Lead for the Cardiac, Vascular and Respiratory Department at Circle Healthcare, a Council Member of the Venous Forum of the Royal Society of Medicine and Founder Member of the International Society for Vascular Surgery.
Mr Braithwaite receives 5-star patient feedback on a regular basis. Further feedback and reviews for Mr Braithwaite can be viewed at www.veincare.net and on twitter @veincareclinics.
