About Veins.Wales

Outpatient Consultation

Outpatient Consultation

Veins.Wales was founded in 2017 on a background of more than 25 years experience in the National Health Service as well as extensive experience of Specialist Vascular Private Practice in Australia and New Zealand.

The aim of Veins.Wales is to provide patients with varicose veins and other vascular conditions the highest quality care. You are unique so consultations, tests and treatments will be tailored to your individual needs.

Our treatments for varicose veins include the latest minimally invasive techniques which are performed under local anaesthetic as “walk in walk” out procedures. Life is busy for many of our patients so specialist assessment and duplex ultrasound examination of varicose veins can be performed at the same appointment as a “one stop shop”.

Assessment of arterial problems can be made with the aid of the latest imaging technologies including duplex ultrasound, CT angiography and digital subtraction angiography.

Appointments can be made for initial consultations with Mr David Lewis MB ChB MD EBSQ(vasc) FRACS(vasc) FRCS Consultant Vascular Surgeon at St Joseph’s Hospital Newport and Spire Hospital Cardiff.
