Consultant Vascular Surgeon
MBBS FRCS FCPhleb
Mr. Michael Rocker was appointed as a Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital in 2007. He completed his undergraduate training in London at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital Medical School and gained his general and vascular training in Wales before completing his endovascular fellowship back at Guy’s and St. Thomas’.
Mike was a trainee with Professor Whiteley at Guildford when the first endovenous varicose vein treatment in the UK was performed. He has introduced both endovascular aneurysm repair and endovenous vein treatments to the Cwm Taf Local Health Board where he continues to work in the NHS.
He joins The Whiteley Clinic at the opening of the Bristol branch and looks forward to developing the clinic where he is delighted to be able to follow The Whiteley Protocol® which he believes offers the finest care to his varicose vein patients. Mike is very keen on his patient treatments being in as relaxed and friendly an environment as possible. He strongly believes that the “walk in walk out” nature of treatments and the rapid recovery contributes to reducing the stress in having varicose veins treated. Being research based The Whiteley Protocol® provides the highest standard of care to each patient whilst allowing proper evaluation of new techniques as they develop.
