We are

Vascular Experts With over 30 Years Experience Delivering Specialised Treatment.

The Art of Vein Care traces it’s origin back thirty years, when Dr David Huber set up the first specialised vascular surgery practice in Wollongong in 1990.  At that time, specialised training for vascular surgeons was new to Australia, and Dr Huber was one of the first.  He completed his general surgery in Sydney, specialised for three years in London, and then completed the new Australian vascular surgical training on return to Sydney.

A vascular surgeon’s work means working with arteries and veins, which he did for many years in both the public and the private hospital systems. As the field of vascular surgery advanced, open surgery with long hospital recovery times began to give way to endovascular surgery and minimally invasive procedures.  That has meant shorter hospital stays, and for many patients, no need for hospitalisation at all.

Since then we have seen new research, new techniques and new guidelines for venous (vein) disease. As an example, the NICE guidelines no longer recommend stripping of varicose veins. There has been a revolution in how we regard and how and when we treat varicose veins. The knowledge and research has given birth to a whole new speciality, phlebology, the science and art of treating veins.

Continuing education is a priority for our practice.  Dr Huber has fostered and mentored hundreds of junior doctors.  He lectures students at the Wollongong University Graduate School of Medicine.  He has a long association with ultrasound labs and the training of specialist vascular sonographers. Currently the practice has two specialty sonographers and one receptionist who is doing the entry exams so that she too can embark on the four year course.

Ultrasound is a vital adjunct to phlebology, because it is a non-invasive method of verifying a diagnosis, and a way of guiding treatment.  A phlebologist ‘visualises’ the veins on the ultrasound screen while treating veins, so it is a very accurate approach.

Clinical Associate Professor Huber is a qualified phlebologist (expert in vein care) and sonographer as well as a general surgeon and vascular surgeon, but he now works as a phlebologist only.  His extensive education and experience means he takes a holistic view of his patients, even though he only treats vein disease.
