Abe is accredited for management of the full spectrum of vascular disease, as well as general surgical conditions. He performs open, endovascular, and laparoscopic procedures. He is happy to assess and manage patients with:

  • Arterial conditions (all aneurysmal & occlusive diseases)
  • Venous conditions (Varicose veins, venous insufficiency, acute & chronic DVTs, thrombophlebitis, post-thrombotic syndrome, May-Thurner Syndrome).
  • Chronic wounds & ulcers (venous, arterial, vasculitic, neuropathic/diabetic) • Renal failure related treatment (peritoneal or haemodialysis therapy)
  • Entrapment syndromes (Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, Popliteal Artery Entrapment, Chronic Compartment Syndrome)
  • Chronic pelvic pain from pelvic congestion syndrome (ovarian vein embolisation & varicoceles)

He has a particular interest in minimally invasive endovascular techniques for arterial and venous conditions, including atherectomy (resection of calcific plaque) for arterial occlusive disease, mechanochemical thrombolysis for acute DVTs, and minimally-invasive treatment for large varicose veins with VenaSeal vein glue. He is also able to treat superficial vascular lesions including spider veins and telengectasia with Intense Pulsed Light Therapy or Sclerotherapy.
