Pen Picture

David West is an internationally recognised expert on minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins, including Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) and VNUS closure. Following medical and surgical training at Leeds Medical School and medical and surgical posts in London, Hull, Cork and Birmingham, he chose to specialise in the emerging field of interventional radiology, gaining experience with the leading pioneers in the field, Anders Lunderquist in Sweden and Duncan Irving in London.


As the Director of Veincentre, one of the largest specialist varicose vein treatment centres in the UK, David is committed to providing safe, non-surgical treatment for varicose veins to 99% of patients who visit his clinics. He has personally undertaken over 10,000 successful EVLA treatments since 2003, and has extensive experience of complementary minimally invasive venous treatments such as embolisation, foam sclerotherapy, venous stenting and radiofrequency perforator ablation. Consultation and treatment can be undertaken in the same visit, with most appointments lasting less than two hours.


David's values and those of Veincentre are Honesty, Safety, Effectiveness, Efficiency, Respect and Value for Money. Not only are his modern and fully equipped clinics in Bristol, London, Manchester, Nottingham and Staffordshire among the busiest and most respected vein clinics in the UK, they also offer treatment at fair and affordable prices, reflecting his belief that quality does not need to cost the earth.
