About Mr Chaloner
I qualified from Oxford University in 1989. After surgical training in London and South Africa, I was appointed as Consultant Vascular Surgeon at University College Hospital, London in 2002, where I was the first surgeon in London and the South East to use the Endovenous Laser Therapy technique for varicose vein surgery. Minimally invasive techniques using local anaesthetic to treat varicose veins are now the ‘gold standard’ for this common condition.
I have a long track record of being a key opinion leader and international teacher in vein surgery, being the first surgeon in the UK to trial the Clarivein technique in 2010. My work is regularly featured in national media publications such as the Daily Mail, Tatler and Grazia magazine. According to the Private Health Information network database, I treat more varicose veins patients per year than any other surgeon in the UK.
In 2012, I appeared in the TV programme The Choir: Sing While You Work, on BBC2 as a member of The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir. I also sang in "A Bridge Over You," a charity single which was the Christmas number one in December 2015, raising funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and other local healthcare charities. The choir has performed at Glastonbury, the FA Cup Final and the Royal Albert Hall.
