Vascular disease affects all parts of the body causing symptoms of stroke, leg pain on walking (claudication), leg ulcers, aneurysms (swelling of the blood vessels), deep vein thrombosis and varicose veins. In patients with diabetes this may be even worse with foot ulcers and gangrene.
Mr Tiwari has been trained extensively in both the UK and Australia on the above conditions. Working at the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hospital and renowned Priory Hospital, he offers both open and keyhole (endovascular or ‘minimally invasive’) treatments in a comfortable and professional environment.
Meet the specialist
Mr Alok Tiwari
Mr Tiwari is a highly experienced Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeon and founder of the ‘Birmingham Vascular Clinic’ located at Birmingham’s Priory Hospital. In collaboration with radiologists, physicians and anaesthetists from Birmingham’s main teaching hospitals, he provides a well respected, high quality service to patients who travel to see him from the local area and beyond.
He specialises in the management and treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms and varicose veins, alongside seeing patients who have had a stroke/ministroke caused by a narrowing in their carotid artery and patients with pain in their leg on walking (also know as claudication).
Together with his fellow specialist collaborators at the clinic, Mr Tiwari is also able to offer a multidisciplinary management of diabetic foot problems, deep vein thrombosis and arteriovenous malformation.
Throughout the treatment process Mr Tiwari prides himself on tailoring every treatment to suit his patient’s needs. During the initial consultation, he will undertake a thorough history of their condition followed by an examination. He will then discuss the need for any further investigation along with forming a management plan.
Once the patient has decided on their preferred management plan, they will either be referred to the Priory hospital for further investigation, or referred to one of the clinic’s trained scanners for a duplex scan. Following this there will be a further appointment to discuss the results and plan any surgical procedure.
Mr Tiwari specialises in conducting his procedures using minimally invasive (keyhole) techniques, particularly in the treatment of varicose veins, carotid artery disease for stroke prevention, abdominal aortic aneurysms and peripheral vascular disease.
After surgery the clinic are on hand to answer any patient questions 24 hours a day Monday - Friday. A scheduled follow up appointment will usually be arranged 4-6 weeks after the procedure, however if there are any concerns before that the clinic will endeavour to see patients at the next available clinic (Monday, Thursday or Saturday).
Mr. Tiwari is a member of the Vascular Society of Great Britain and Ireland, European Society of Vascular Surgery, British Society of Endovascular Therapy and British Medical Association.
