Varicose veins are a common problem, affecting up to 1 in 3 adults in their lifetime. They are usually a sign of an underlying venous insufficiency.
Thread veins can appear anywhere on the body but are mostly evidenced on the legs and face. They are more common than varicose veins, affecting up to 80% of adults.
Leg ulcers appear as broken skin in the lower leg or feet. We have been successfully treating venous leg ulcers for over 20 years.

He completed Radiology training at the Royal Free hospital in London becoming a fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR) in 2013. He was a lecturer in Anatomy at the University of Exeter and undertook a fellowship in body imaging at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital in Perth, Australia in 2015/16.

Outside of work, Rob is married with a young family with who he loves to spend time outdoors whenever possible. Ideally, he would spend most of his free time at the beach with them even when the weather is not in their favour. He loves the sea and is a keen bodyboarder who one day hopes to continue travelling around the world.
Dr Colliver has committed to working at Veincentre Bristol on a Friday. If you book an initial consultation with Dr Colliver in Bristol, all your future appointments will be with Dr Colliver in Bristol. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Dr Colliver on a Friday (as will all future follow-up appointments).
Occasionally Dr Colliver may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than a Friday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Dr Colliver’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 Colliver may not be available every Friday.
