Dr Steve Goode
GMC No: 6025488
NHS Base: Sheffield Vascular Institute
Stephen qualified in Medicine and Surgery from the University of Leicester Medical School in 2001 (MBChB). He then completed a basic surgical training rotation in Derby obtaining a professional qualification in surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2005 (MRCS(Eng)). He then went onto complete a Doctorate in Philosophy (PhD) in Vascular Surgery at the University of Nottingham in 2010. It was during this period of research that Stephen gained his early experience in the treatment of varicose veins both using the older method of open surgical treatment and newer endovenous methods. From this period of extensive research Stephen published a number of significant articles on varicose vein research which have been highly cited and have provided significant data to the literature. Stephen continued his endovenous training with Dr West in 2017 before starting work with Veincentre at the Nottingham clinic. He opened the Leeds Veincentre clinic in 2019 and has been working there since with excellent patient feedback.
Stephen completed his Radiology training on the Sheffield Radiology training scheme, gaining Fellowship to the Royal College of Radiologists in 2011. He was one of the first radiology trainees to gain a dedicated Interventional Radiology training fellowship and gained a Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT) in Interventional Radiology in 2014.
He is currently working as a Consultant Vascular Interventional Radiologist, at the Sheffield Vascular Institute, Northern General Hospital in Sheffield. He specialises in all types of vascular intervention with a specialist interest in Endovascular Aneurysm Repair including complex thoracic aortic repair and recently has developed aortic arch branch grafting techniques in Sheffield. His interests also include peripheral vascular disease, uterine fibroid embolization, varicocoele embolization and endovascular treatment of venous diseases including pelvic venous congestion syndrome, deep venous thrombosis, and venous stenting procedures for chronic venous occlusive disease. All the interventions that Stephen performs everyday are minimally invasive image guided procedures under local anaesthetic (with occasional GA cases) and he is an expert in performing these procedures.
Stephen is a member of the British Society of Interventional Radiology (BSIR) and the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiological Society of Europe (CIRSE). He remains active in research in Sheffield being principal investigator on a number of important multicentre international studies and continues to present at national and international conferences.
In his spare time, Stephen enjoys spending valuable family time with his 2 daughters and travelling in their VW campervan. He is a keen competitive cyclist, swimmer and runner – taking part in a numerous races per year in open water swimming, triathlon or long distance running. He also enjoys climbing and bouldering.
If you book an initial consultation with Dr Goode in Veincentre Leeds, all your future appointments will be with Dr Goode in Leeds. It is really useful to note that the day of the week Dr Goode works at Veincentre varies week by week. He runs his sessions on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday.
As such, if you see Dr Goode you’re likely to have the option of attending future appointments on either a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, however, those days are subject to availability and he doesn’t run clinics on those days every week.
Occasionally Dr Goode 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 Goode’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 Goode’s availability may change.
