The Cornwall Vein Clinic was formed by Mr Kenneth R Woodburn MD FRCSG(gen). Mr Woodburn trained as a specialist Vascular Surgeon in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Sydney, and has been an NHS Consultant Vascular Surgeon in Cornwall for 15 years. As one of the first surgeons in the UK to introduce endovascular surgery (keyhole arterial surgery) to routine NHS practice, he has been providing an endovascular surgical practice in Cornwall since 1998. In conjunction with his NHS Consultant Vascular Surgical colleague, Mr Harvey Chant, he has also provided an endovenous surgical service to the local NHS since 2006. Mr Woodburn has now treated well over 1000 patients with VNUS Closure™, endovenous laser therapy and other ambulatory treatments for varicose veins, and is involved in training and demonstrating these techniques at the annual Charing Cross international symposium.
