Dr Stephen Tristram is an Associate Specialist in vascular surgery, and extremely well respected in his field. He has appeared on BBC Television’s The One Show discussing the treatment of varicose veins and demonstrating an innovative non-surgical technique available at Chiltern Medical Clinic. He was involved in the development of ultrasound-guided techniques for the treatment of varicose veins and ran a large European study in 2001. He lectures widely on his interests and sits on The BUPA Consensus panel for vascular treatments.

His expertise is in the scanning and treatment by injection and compression sclerotherapy of leg veins. This technique allows for the treatment of larger blue veins (reticular and varicose veins) which, in the past, would only be responsive to surgical treatment. Also the use of ‘foam’ as the agent which is injected has revolutionised the treatment of larger leg veins by injection.

He uses a Duplex scanner which allows him to identify problems in the larger vessels such as “leaking” valves and perforator veins, which are the usual source of thread veins and varicose veins. The scanner also allows him to accurately visualise and safely inject larger veins, which would sometimes be impossible with the naked eye. It is important to provide the right compression to these veins after treatment and we provide the correct medical grade compression stockings for this purpose.

Dr Tristram injects small thread veins and Dr Munnelly uses the Nd:YAG laser and the KTP to treat these veins. We are very happy that we can provide a very comprehensive and up-to-date service for the treatment of the vast majority of leg veins problems.

Dr Annette Bacon is our dedicated eye surgeon. Her specialties include cosmetic eye surgery, oculoplastic surgery and cataract surgery. Dr Bacon has exceptional clinical interests in Phacoemulsification surgery for cataracts, lid surgery (Blepharoplasty) and Meibomian cysts.

Dr. Vlok is a cosmetic doctor trained in the latest VASER body sculpting techniques and is one of the few UK clinicians qualified to execute this highly specialised form of liposculpture.

He trained in VASER Lipo at the world famous Dynamx International Centre for Artistic Body Sculpting with the renowned surgeon who perfected the technique and is known as the ‘medical Michelangelo’.

Just like his mentor, Dr. Volk has an affinity and talent for fine arts, which along with his strong medical background, lead him to a career in aesthetic medicine.

His goal is to make a difference in people’s lives thanks to his medical interventions. His great attention to detail makes him a slight perfectionist, but it does lead to remarkable results when combined with the passion he has for his work. A man of many talents, Dr. Vlok is also proficient with wrinkle reduction injections, dermal filler injections, peels and laser treatments.

He received his Bachelors in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. He then secured a Master’s degree in Family Medicine, as well as a Diploma in Occupational Health and Medicine, and has gained extensive clinical experience working at the Wynberg Hospital in Cape Town.
