Providing exceptional vascular consultancy and aftercare treatment
The London Vein and Vascular Partnership (LVVP) offers the highest quality treatment of diseases that affect the vascular system, including varicose veins, spider veins, aortic aneurysms, carotid atherosclerosis and peripheral vascular disease. We offer a full range of out-patient consultation, diagnostic services, ambulatory and in-patient treatment. The LVVP offers services in a number of facilities, sited throughout inner and South-West London.
The Partnership was formed by two Consultant Vascular and Endovascular Surgeons, Professor Ian Loftus and Mr Paul Moxey who both have appointments at the prestigious St George’s Vascular Institute. LVVP offers the most modern, technologically advanced, minimally invasive procedures for a variety of vascular and venous disorders.
The Partnership approach ensures that our patients have constant access to our consultants in the most convenient location.

Mr Paul Moxey
Consultant in Vascular Surgery
Mr Paul Moxey is a Consultant Vascular Surgeon at St George's University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Paul completed his medical training at Imperial College, London, in 2002 and entered higher surgical training in the London and Kent, Surrey and Sussex Deanery before being awarded his Certificate of Completion of Training in General and Vascular Surgery in 2017. His final two years of training at St George's Vascular Institute and St Thomas' Vascular Unit in London included an interventional fellowship where he became proficient in keyhole angioplasty techniques for restoring blood flow to the legs.
Between 2009-11 Paul underwent a period of formal research training at St George’s, University of London, and was awarded an MD for his thesis examining the outcomes of patients undergoing limb saving bypass surgery or angioplasty in England. Paul has published and presented extensively on the subject of lower limb revascularisation, limb salvage, the management of diabetic foot problems and varicose veins. He continues to be actively involved in research in this rapidly expanding field. In 2015 he completed a Masters in Surgical Education (MEd) from Imperial College that paved the way for his interest in teaching and training. In 2016 he became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
Paul was appointed Consultant Vascular Surgeon at St George's and Kingston Hospitals in April 2017. His practice encompasses all aspects of vascular surgery from varicose veins to carotid disease but he has a particular focus on peripheral vascular disease. He has an interest in keyhole angioplasty techniques for opening arteries and 'hybrid' techniques that combine keyhole and open surgery to restore blood flow. In 2018 he was appointed Honorary Senior Lecturer at St George's University of London.
Areas of interest:
Peripheral vascular disease; varicose veins; leg ulcers; diabetic foot problems; carotid disease; aortic aneurysms; lymphatic problems; thread veins; sclerotherapy.
