Vascular Surgery of Tasmania is the company name of Clinical Associate Professor Stuart Walker, Specialist Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon. He trained in vascular and endovascular surgery in the UK and now works solely in Tasmania, Australia. This website contains information and links on advice and treatment provided by Stuart Walker. This includes the full spectrum of peripheral vascular disorders. The commonest conditions treated are varicose veins, intermittent claudication, aneurysms (abdominal, popliteal), critical limb ischaemia (arm and leg), carotid artery disease and leg ulcers. More information on these common conditions can be found under the vascular conditions tab.
Most conditions are amenable to minimally invasive treatment, a particular area of interest to Stuart Walker. These types of intervention have many advantages to patients including shorter operative times, reduced hospital length of stay and reduced convalescence time.
Stuart Walker treats both public and private patients at the Royal Hobart Hospital, Mersey Community Hospital and the Launceston General Hospital. Private patients can also be seen at the Calvary Consulting Suites in Hobart and at the North West Private Hospital in Burnie.
