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.
