Mark Regi is a Consultant in Vascular Interventional Radiology at the Sheffield Vascular Institute (SVI). His passion lies in Vascular Intervention within Trauma and complex aneurysm repair (EVAR). He leads the complex aneurysm and thoracic aneurysm service in Sheffield and is currently developing aortic arch branch grafting in Sheffield.
Mark trained in minimally invasive varicose vein treatments with Dr David West in 2014 and opened the Nottingham Veincentre clinic in the same year. He has now performed over 1,000 laser treatments and many more sclerotherapy treatments. He has been performing embolisation of pelvic veins to treat varicose veins for over a decade. He is invited faculty at the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) where he teaches European medical colleagues to perform varicose vein treatments. Over the last 6 years, he has developed his practice, including a new major interest in venous intervention (EVLT and deep venous stenting). All of the interventions that he performs are within an artery or a vein and under imaging guidance.
He is currently the Network clinical lead for the South Yorkshire Major Trauma Network and IR trauma lead for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals. He is also an associate editor for the Trauma journal. He thoroughly enjoys these roles and uses them to push forward Trauma care and interventional radiology care in the region for the benefit of patients.
His training has been thorough and planned, in high volume units with UK experts and leaders in their fields including Prof Tony Watkinson, Prof Peter Gaines, Dr Trevor Cleveland and Dr West. He initially chose a Basic Surgical Rotation to give him a good basis in surgical technique and practice. He gained a massive experience in Trauma by working in Emergency Medicine before and during his Radiology training. He was proud to be advanced life support (ALS) and advanced trauma life support (ATLS) instructor. Mark’s Radiology training was totally focused on Interventional Radiology, gaining the maximum experience possible in a number of excellent units in the South West region. He completed an IR clinical attachment for 6 months before becoming the Endovascular Fellow at the Sheffield Vascular Institute for 2 years. Mark is fully trained in all aspects of both vascular and non-vascular IR and has worked as a Consultant in both.
Mark’s other great interest in medical education. He was a peer tutor throughout the medical school; completing a number of postgraduate teaching courses and teaching at the University of Sheffield regularly. He has a Post Graduate Diploma in Medical Education from Cardiff University and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. He is an Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Bristol University and the University of Sheffield.
Over the last 10 years, Mark has volunteered for the charity Festival Medical Services and has provided emergency care and co-ordinated the Imaging services at the Glastonbury and Reading music festivals.
Mark’s career as a Vascular Interventional Radiologist allows him to combine hands-on clinical practice with his interest in medical education. He is passionate about driving forward developments in vascular interventional radiology to benefit patients.
Outside of work Mark enjoys spending family time with his wife, two young children and their dog.
If you book an initial consultation with Dr Regi in Veincentre Nottingham, all your future appointments will be with Dr Regi in Nottingham. It is really useful to note that the day of the week Dr Regi works at Veincentre varies week by week. Most of his sessions are on a Thursday however he also runs sessions on occasional Saturdays.
As such, if you see Dr Regi you’re likely to have the option of attending future appointments on either a Thursday or Saturday however they are all subject to availability and he doesn’t run clinics on all days every week.
Occasionally Dr Regi may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on every weekday even if a previous appointment was on a different weekday.
If you are unable to attend one of Dr Regi’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.
Please note that due to holidays Dr Regi may not be available every week.
