Ian Franklin was a NHS doctor for 23 years including 12 years as consultant vascular surgeon at Imperial College NHS Trust performing a full range of arterial, venous and emergency vascular surgery.
He is now a full-time private venous specialist. He introduced key minimally invasive treatments to the NHS and has written numerous scientific papers, book chapters and a surgical textbook. He trains other specialists in modern vein techniques all over the world and is the programme director of the International Charing Cross Venous Course held in London every April.
