Mr Gregory 'Greg' Self
I have a specialist vascular surgical private practice in Melbourne, Australia. I approach each patient from a whole of person viewpoint as seen through the filter of my extensive surgical training and experience. Surgery is to me an assesment and management philosophy and then a potential procedure or operation date.
The practice emphasises minimally invasive endovascular arterial (angiography, angioplasty, stents) and rooms-based endovenous (laser varicose vein treatment, US-guided sclerotherapy, sclerotherapy) treatments.
Arterial surgery is commonly performed even though endovascular solutions are sought. Varicose veins surgery is available though not often required. All operations and endovascular procedures occur at Epworth Hospital, Richmond. Selected medical and surgical colleagues may attend the patient by my referral. Detailed correspondence and written patient advice are routinely provided. Patient gap costs are moderate for most procedures. Bulkbilling is not routine. Selected hardship cases may be seen if requested by referring doctors.
Lower limb ulcers may be referred for assessment and management. On site specialist vascular ultrasound exams may be booked in tandem for the day of consultation.
Urgent referrals: fax or email referral information and contact the office. Urgent/early appointments will be faciltated. After hours: sms to Mr Self
I do not see WorkCover, TAC, or medico-legal cases except by prior arrangement.
Conditions currently not treated at this clinic: thoraco-abdominal aneurysm, first rib syndrome, renal transplantation, vascular access, temporal artery biopsy, popliteal artery entrapment syndrome.
1 Social distancing, hand sanitisation apply. Appointment spacing is in place ie slowed patient flow. Phone answering is slowed. Restrictions on hospital admissions and hospital visiting may suddenly be applied.
2. The Richmond consulting rooms are within the Epworth Hospital complex. All persons entering the complex are health screened.

3. Email enquiries are helpful vs voicemails. Patient registration can be pre-done electronically. Vascular ultrasound (at Medicare rebate) can be arranged prior to the consultation. Satellite appiontments may appply (Morrabbin).
