Professor Bruce Campbell is one of the UK's best known vein experts.  He is currently President of the Venous Forum of the Royal Society of Medicine, which is the main professional organisation in the UK for surgeons and others with a special interest in venous disease.

He has experience of treating thousands of patients with varicose veins over many years and he also specialises in microsclerotherapy treatment for thread veins and other small veins on the legs.

For varicose veins Bruce Campbell offers a range of treatment options including cyanoacrylate glue ablation, foam sclerotherapy, and surgery. These treatments are all on a walk-in walk-out basis, in the Exeter Medical operating theatres, with an experienced team. He works in close liaison with Mr Philip Niblett, Consultant Clinical Scientist, for all duplex ultrasound scanning of veins.

He has been a leader of major research studies on varicose vein treatments and how patients benefit from them. He has written and lectured extensively on new treatments for varicose veins and on the problems that varicose veins can cause (ulcers, thrombosis, phlebitis). He is particularly recognised for his approach to giving people good information and informed choice: his book for patients “Understanding Varicose Veins” has been reprinted several times". His recent publications include Editorials on the choice of treatment for varicose veins and on his experiences of having his own varicose veins treated.

“My approach to varicose veins is, first and foremost, to talk to people about them. I always explore people's concerns and fears. Many people just want a good explanation and reassurance. If they would like treatment then I will talk in detail about the pros and cons of different treatments, on an individual basis."

He offers cosmetic microsclerotherapy treatment for thread veins, in addition to a full range of treatments for varicose veins – cyanoacrylate (bioadhesive) glue treatment, foam sclerotherapy, and surgery.
