Specialist Vein Health are a collaborative group of Australasian trained vascular and endovascular surgeons.
They work at Wellington Hospital, and consult together in private in Wellington, Lower Hutt, Kapiti and Nelson.
Specialist Vein Health offers comprehensive treatment for varicose veins. In the past, varicose veins were stripped with a surgical procedure under general anaesthetic.
Our surgeons are:
Lupe Taumoepeau MBCHB (Akl), FRACS (Vascular)
Richard Evans MBCHB (Otago), FRACS (General Surgery), FRACS (Vascular), DDU (Vascular)
JK Wicks MBCHB (Otago), FRACS (General Surgery), FRACS (Vascular)
Today, our surgeons perform a minimally invasive technique using the most advanced technology, which means:
- A walk-in walk-out procedure
- No need for general anaesthetic
- Minimal time off work
- Significantly reduced cost to the patient
- Little or no scarring
- Minimal pain
Treatment of varicose veins can relieve varicose eczema and help heal venous leg ulcers.
Specialist Vein Health also offers consultations for assessment of varicose veins during pregnancy, a vascular ultrasound service, and provide compression hosiery.
Our surgeons also assess and treat all arterial conditions, with special interest in carotid artery surgery, thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, and lower limb intervention to improve circulation.
