Kevin Conway is a general surgeon, specialising in vascular and endovascular surgery, which includes the treatment of Varicose Veins. After graduating from Cardiff University in 1997, he completed his basic and higher surgical training in Wales and was awarded CCT in general and vascular surgery.
In 2007 he obtained an MD after a period of research in the Department of Surgery and Wound Healing Research Unit, Cardiff University into the control mechanisms of new blood vessel formation (angiogenesis). Following completion of his surgical training he was appointed as a vascular surgeon in the Royal Glamorgan hospital and has honorary contracts to perform emergency vascular surgery at hospitals in Cardiff and Vale and Aneurin Bevan local health board areas.
Due to the rapidly changing nature of vascular surgery he tailored his surgical training to encompass minimally invasive endotherapies as well as open approaches to vascular disease. He treats varicose veins with Endovenous Laser Ablation, Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation and Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerothaerpy.
As these new techniques require good ultrasound scanning skills he has also completed a Post-Graduate Certificate in Vascular Ultrasound. He also performs injection microsclerotherapy for thread veins and manages arterial disease with both open and minimally invasive techniques.
