About

Dr Wong has a special interest in minimally invasive surgery in treatment of varicose veins and arterial disease.

The treatment of varicose veins have evolved dramatically throughout the last decade, enabling patients to have treatment without a hospital stay. It can be performed under local anaesthetic, as a walk in walk out procedure. The newest form of heat treatments, also known as endovenous treatments include radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser therapy. This combined with ultrasound guided sclerotherapy leave you with a small 2mm scar just below the knee and no immobility with return to work the next day.

Lower limb ulcers as a result of diabetes, venous or arterial disease is a special area of interest for Dr Wong. Diabetes requires a multidisciplinary care, and Dr Wong recognises the complexity of the problem, referring patients to be cared for by a specialist endocrinologist. The arterial disease can also be treated by minimally invasive method requiring only a small puncture in the groin. A catheter is placed in the arterial system followed by pictures acquired to identify the exact location of the narrowing. Once this is clearly documented, Dr Wong can use a wire to traverse the lesion and perform either balloon angioplasty or stenting of the lesion. This is normally performed in the hospital with an overnight stay.

Dr Wong has worked with experts in the field of treating aortic aneurysms. Having trained in Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, United Kingdom, she has treated complex aortic aneurysms with minimally invasive methods.
