Eddie Chaloner is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon practising in the UK.
Chaloner pioneered endovenous laser surgery treatment for varicose veins in the UK, which has revolutionised the treatment of this common condition worldwide. In 2003 he was the first surgeon in London and the South of England to use laser surgery to treat veins.
He frequently lectures and teaches on the subject of minimally invasive vein surgery and is a faculty member on a variety of training programmes including for theRoyal College of Surgeons of England, the Charing Cross International Vascular Symposium and the Venous Forum of the Royal Society of Medicine. He is also a member of the Vascular Society and of the Royal Society of Medicine.
In 2010, Chaloner became the first surgeon in the UK to use the Clarivein treatment for varicose veins to achieve sealing of saphenous vein reflux by an injection-free technique. He continues to research in this field.
The NHS began to restrict access to vein surgery, such as endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and sclerotherapy in parts of the UK.
