About

Mr Hobbs is a specialist Consultant Vascular Surgeon and has developed a specific interest in providing local anaesthetic, minimally invasive solutions to treating varicose veins and thread veins.

He is passionate about providing high quality care for patients with varicose and thread veins. He believes that the majority of varicose veins and thread veins can be treated with minimally invasive, state of the art techniques, under local anaesthetic as a walk-in, walk-out procedure with little down time.  Clinic appointments and procedures are performed in a relaxed atmosphere and he makes sure that discussions about treatment are delivered in language that patients can easily understand.

He is trained in the use of duplex ultrasound, which is an essential tool in the assessment of varicose and thread veins.  Accurate assessment of the anatomy and function of the veins, especially the deeper “feeder” veins, ensures that tailored, individualised treatment plans can be recommended, providing optimum results.
