WSV Urgent Clinic

If your heart is the captain, your blood vessels are the crew and we know urgent care can be lifesaving.
The urgent conditions we can review and triage within 48-72 hours with a call from your GP includes:

  • Bleeding Veins
  • Aortic Aneurysm
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Painful, infected feet & legs
  • Symptomatic Carotid Artery Disease such as mini strokes

Note: Varicose vein and spider vein treatments often cause annoying symptoms such as restless legs, pain, heaviness. While these symptoms are distressing they are not classified as “urgent”.

Diabetic Foot Clinic

Our surgeons also offer a free weekly diabetic foot and chronic ulcer clinic at Westmead Hospital on Thursdays with a podiatrist, diabetic educator and a clinical nurse specialist.
We also service this clinic at Blacktown Hospital on Wednesdays.

For private patients, we offer a dedicated ulcer clinic at Norwest Private Hospital.

Untreated diabetic foot issues can result in serious health complications including amputation, which is why it is important to be aware of early signs of diabetes complications in your feet.

Spider Veins

Minimally-Invasive Vein Care

A one-stop-vein shop – Western Sydney Vascular provides imaging, assessment and treatment of venous conditions in one place.
We treat the gamut of deep venous conditions including DVT (deep vein thrombosis) and venous obstruction.
We also offer minimally-invasive solutions for spider veins as well as effective treatments for large, painful veins that left untreated increase the risk of blood clot, pigmentation and ulceration.
Ask us today about the latest treatments for varicose veins including laser therapy that destroys and seals veins, sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation and glue.
We also frequently perform phlebectomy procedures, a day procedure that is minimally invasive and uses a small scalpel to remove varicose veins that are very close to the skin surface of the leg.
In more advanced cases vein stenting may be undertaken.

Western Sydney Vascular also provides vascular access for renal dialysis patients (fistulas)
and patients requiring chemotherapy lines.
Our doctors frequently treat weekend warriors and elite athletes alike who
experience vascular issues during exercise.

Specialised Vascular Ultrasound

Western Sydney Vascular has a state-of-the-art Doppler ultrasound clinic in both our Westmead Private, Sydney Adventist Hospital (The SAN) and Norwest Private rooms.
Ask your GP for a direct referral to our clinic which is open 8:00am-4.30pm Monday to Friday.
Scans and procedures we perform can be found here.
Ultrasounds involve no radiation and can help to identify blockages (stenosis), abnormalities like plaque or blood clots (DVT), narrowing of vessels and evaluating varicose veins.
Evidence shows that ultrasounds performed by experienced vascular sonographers have a greater accuracy rate.
Ultrasound can also be used to detect tumours and malformations and identify specific areas where blood flow is reduced.
All scans can be bulk-billed for pensioners, otherwise a small gap fee applies.
Multiple scans on the same day will also attract a fee.

Vascular surgeon vs Cardiothoracic surgeon vs Cardiologist? What’s the difference and who should I see?

A vascular surgeon operates on any vessels on the periphery of the body including the arteries, veins and lymphatic vessels (for instance in the legs, arms and abdomen).
The responsibilities tasked to a vascular surgeon include assessing patients with vascular problems, performing ultrasounds and angiography and treating vein and artery conditions through minimally invasive procedures or larger, open surgeries and prescribed medications.
Vascular surgeons also provide lifestyle advice on diet, exercise and leg ulcers.
Conditions you would see a vascular surgeon for include vein disease (varicose veins), aortic aneurysm, Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), Carotid Artery Disease, leg ulcers and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) also known as a blood clot. Vascular surgeons also frequently correct blockages inside a blood vessel when compression of the veins and arteries occurs such as Thoracic Outlet Syndrome or popliteal artery entrapment.
A cardiothoracic surgeon on the other hand operates on diseases of the heart or lungs.
Conditions that a cardiothoracic surgeon treats includes heart attack (myocardial infarction), coronary artery disease (artery blockage), leaking heart valve, regurgitating heart valve, valvular stenosis (blocked or narrowed valves), heart failure and left ventricular aneurysm (stretched heart muscle).
Finally, a cardiologist performs minimally invasive cardiac procedures such as angiogram, rather than large open surgeries.
The cardiologist is a physician who specialises in assessing and diagnosing symptoms of the heart such as chest pain, dizziness and shortness of breath as well as the management of conditions such as hypertension, cholesterol and abnormal heart rhythms.
