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.

Mr Bjorn Telgenkamp is a Consultant in Vascular Surgery at University Hospitals Sussex. His passion lies in Vascular and Endovascular lower limb revascularisations, specifically for diabetes patients and Aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR). He leads the Diabetic Foot Services in Sussex.
Bjorn trained in minimally invasive varicose vein treatments with Prof. Stephen Black, from Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital in London, focusing on on radiofrequency ablation, laser treatments and sclerotherapy treatments. Over the last 6 years, he has developed his practice, including a major interest in arterial and venous endovascular interventions (arterial and venous stenting).
He is currently the Clinical Lead for Diabetic Foot Disease in the Sussex Integrated Care Service. He is a reviewer for the European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery. He thoroughly enjoys these roles and uses them to push forward Surgical & Endovascular care in the region for the benefit of patients.
His training has been thorough and planned, in high volume units in Europe, including Maastricht University Medical Centre, Netherlands, with Prof. Jacobs, in Nurnberg Medical Centre, Germany, with Prof. Verhoeven, St. Mary’s Hospital, London, with Prof. Gibbs & Mr. Jenkins and St. Thomas’ Hospital, London, with Miss Bell.
Bjorn is fully trained in all aspects of both vascular and endovascular treatments and works as a consultant in both.
Bjorn’s other great interest is in medical education. He has won a couple of educational prizes in the Netherlands and continues to teach young Vascular Surgeons in training at University Hospitals Sussex and Medical Students at Brighton & Sussex Medical School.
Over the last 4 years, Bjorn is a volunteer for the Crew Club, youth club in Brighton and has provided Medical Care for the England Boxing Association.
Outside of work Bjorn enjoys spending time with his wife and two young girls.
Mr Telgenkamp works at Veincentre Brighton on a Thursday. If you book an initial consultation with Mr Telgenkamp, all your future appointments will be with Mr Telgenkamp throughout your treatment journey. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Mr Telgenkamp on a Thursday (as will all future follow-up appointments).
Occasionally Mr Telgenkamp 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 Thursday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Mr Telgenkamp’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with another consultant prior to any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.
Please note that due to holidays Mr Telgenkamp may not be available every Thursday.
