Mr Simon Hobbs is a Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon working in the Black Country Vascular Network. He completed his undergraduate education at Birmingham University in 1998 and then undertook basic and higher surgical training in the major vascular units in the West Midlands. He was awarded the prestigious BSET Endovascular Fellowship post in Liverpool, gaining experience in the management of complex aortic aneurysms. He has a passionate interest in the management of abdominal aortic aneurysms and lower limb peripheral arterial disease. Mr Hobbs has a specialist interest in providing high quality varicose vein and thread vein treatments specialising in minimally invasive, local anaesthetic techniques that are performed as walk-in, walk-out procedures.
In the last 3 months Mr Hobbs has done the varicose veins on both of my legs. I am a registered nurse and was well aware that I was not an ideal patient being over weight and having very impressive varicose veins since the birth of my first child 30 years previous. My memories of varicose vein surgery was very barbaric with limited results and high reoccurance. Mr Hobbs explained that he would tailor make the surgery for my needs and he was very confident I would get a good result. The procedure itself was uncomfortable but not painful, I was put very much at my ease by fabulous theatre staff who chatted away; I was even able to choose my own playlist whilst in theatre. The recovery has been great. I no longer have aching legs and they will never be beautiful put gosh they look years younger. Thank you to Mr Hobbs and everyone involved, I tested your skills and the results are amazing .
I had suffered for years with varicose veins but was too frightened to go but I finally plucked up the courage to see Mr Hobbs who was very reassuring.. I had the procedure done in March which took 1 hour. I can now wear shorts without having unsightly veins. My legs do not ache like they used to and I have stopped taking tablets for cramp because it is so minimal now. Really pleased should have done it sooner.
Mr Hobbs was excellent from start to finish. He explained everything fully and in terms that I understood. The procedure was a little uncomfortable but not painful. I would highly recommend him and will be going back to see him to get my thread veins treated. I would also like to say a big thank you to all of the staff that I had contact with they treated me with kindness they were very caring and professional.
Mr Hobbs explained my procedure very simply and explained after what to expect. The care by his team was excellent and was very well looked after. I was put at ease during my operation and enjoyed listening to his music.
Mr Hobbs had a very happy and welcoming manner. The appointment was conducted in a very professional way and the procedure was explained in detail. The operation went well with very little discomfort. We did have a slight nervous moment when I had to remove the dressing but all went well in the end. We followed the aftercare as recommend in the literature provided. Peter would say do not put up with discomfort and unsightly veins as he has since his late 30's. Peter is now in his 70's and has more shorts than trousers. Thanks to Mr Hobbs and his careing staff.
