Vascular surgery

Treating blood vessel conditions

Surgical treatments for all types of common and complex vascular conditions — from thread veins to bypass surgery


Vascular surgery treats conditions that affect the arteries and veins. It's a highly specialised yet far-reaching area that covers cosmetic issues such as birthmarks and thread veins through to serious circulatory conditions that can lead to strokes and aneurysms. We have specialist vascular surgery units at two of our facilities so you can benefit from access to the highest quality expertise. The Vascular Centre at The Harley Street Clinic and The Wellington Hospital's vascular unit offers an extensive range of surgical treatments, including tumour removal and surgery to unblock narrow arteries (endarterectomy). Our acclaimed consultants use the most advanced technology and they're backed up by the latest imaging equipment. This means they're able to carry out sophisticated interventional radiology and minimally invasive (endovascular) procedures.


We work with leading consultants and use the most up-to-date surgical techniques to treat vascular conditions.

  • Endarterectomy

    Need to know

    An endarterectomy involves removing a calcified build-up (plaque) on the inner wall of an artery to help prevent strokes and improve blood flow in narrowed arteries. It's usually carried out on the arteries of the lower limbs but can be performed on any artery.

    Whilst excessive sweating isn't usually a sign of anything serious, it can have a negative impact on your life. We offer a range of surgical and non-surgical treatments that can help reduce the amount you sweat and improve your quality of life.

  • Varicose vein treatments

    Need to know

If you have varicose veins, the valves in your veins don't work properly. There are several surgical treatments available to remove them.

  • Vascular access procedures

    Need to know

    Vascular access refers to a group of procedures that use a catheter to deliver drugs intravenously over a period of time. It includes chemotherapy, long-term intravenous feeding, blood transfusions and dialysis. If your consultant needs to take repeated blood samples, they may use the same method.

  • Vascular embolisation

    Need to know

    Vascular embolisation can shrink or slow down the growth of a tumour by reducing or blocking its blood supply, depriving it of the oxygen or nutrients it needs to grow. It can also be used to stop bleeding from a damaged artery or vein, or to block blood supply to a particular part of the body or an...
