Personal profile

Mr Chaloner qualified from Oxford University in 1989. After surgical training in London and South Africa, he was appointed as Consultant Vascular Surgeon at University College Hospital, London in 2002, where he was the first surgeon in London and the South East to use the EVLT laser technique for varicose vein surgery.

Minimally invasive techniques using local anaesthetic to treat varicose veins are now the ‘gold standard’ for this common condition. Mr Chaloner has 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. His work is regularly featured in national media publications such as the Daily Mail, Tatler and Grazia magazine.

99% of patients can be treated under local anaesthetic as a day case ‘walk in-walk out procedure’.

Unsightly thread veins are treated by injection sclerotherapy in outpatient clinics.

According to the Private Health Information network database (www.phin.org.uk), Mr Chaloner treats more varicose veins patients per year than any other surgeon in the UK.

In 2012, he appeared in the TV programme The Choir: Sing While You Work, on BBC2. As a member of The Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Choir, he 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.
