Professional statement

Dr Omar Abu-Bakr is a leading consultant venous surgeon and phlebologist in London, Guildford and Bristol who holds a special interest in treating varicose veins. His areas of expertise include varicose veins surgery, thrombophlebitis, leg ulcers, perforating veins and thread veins. He is a specialist in general ultrasonography. His slogan 'the art of treating varicose veins' is with good reason as his patients have a 3% recurrent rate following his treatment of varicose veins.

With over 13 years’ worth of experience, Dr Abu-Bakr is the first ever surgeon to describe the Multi-Pass technique, which treats huge varicose veins using the Endovenous Radial Laser 1470 nm and without the need for open surgery. The technique was described in the second international meeting of the College of Phlebology in London in March 2018. Proudly, Dr Abu-Bakr won second prize for the best scientific paper.

Dr Abu-Bakr is also the first surgeon in the UK and second worldwide who treats varicose veins with the new high-intensity focused ultrasound known as SONOVEIN S, which is the only method in the world that does not require anaesthesia. He is the second surgeon in the UK to treat varicose veins using the Endovenous Microwave Ablation (EMWA).

In 2020, Dr Abu-Bakr and his team at The Whiteley Clinic were awarded the Best Varicose Veins Treatment (UK) by Global Health & Pharma magazine.
