We are a world-class vascular and endovascular centre offering a suite of cutting-edge, evidence-based services, providing every patient with an individualized treatment experience.
Vascular is a term used to describe any blood vessel conditions or treatment related to the human body. Endovascular actually means keyhole method for treating blood vessel conditions as opposed to open major surgery. The Vascular and Endovascular Clinic essentially offers comprehensive treatment from open surgery to minimal invasive surgery (endovascular), hence we made this our trade name.
We aim to boost your circulation and get you back to your normal vascular health as soon as possible.

Proving excellent long term varicose vein ablation surgery results by registry data
Although research clinical studies are important, the proof of long term results is by following patients over years using a dedicated venous registry. Hence The Vascular & Endovascular Clinic has joined The College of Phlebology to be part of an international venous registry – the CoP Venous Registry, where all patients with varicose veins and venous related problems are included. The Vascular & Endovascular Clinic will be the first centre from Singapore to be a member of this international collaboration for venous benchmarking
Over the coming years, Doctors and vein clinics who are part of CoP will be able to show that they get excellent results for their patients and this registry will be a quality indicator of success. This will help give our patients the confidence that all their surgeon’s work is being scrutinized and patients can give long term feedback. We are proud to support the CoP venous registry and our specialists are amongst the first to sign up and use it.
