About Dr Paul Varcoe

Dr Varcoe received his medical degree at Melbourne University in 1979. After a satisfying career in General Practice, he then commenced full time work in the emerging specialty of Phlebology (venous disorders). He trained under Dr Paul Thibault, who was the founding President of The Australasian College of Phlebology (ACP). Since opening the The Leg Vein Clinic, Gold Coast, in 1995, he has been actively involved in education and he has presented papers at both national and international conferences (learn more from professional organisation appointments and professional society presentations links on our site).

Dr Varcoe has been a Member of the Sclerotherapy Society of Australia (SSA) since 1995, Council Member of the SSA since 1998 and Vice President of SSA (now ACP) from 1999 - 2002. He is one of only four Fellows of the Australian College of Phebology in Queensland. He was one of the two Conference Convenors for the 6th Annual Scientific conference for the ACP. He has a particular interest in training of doctors wishing to learn about phlebology and conducts regular preceptorships to provide one-on-one training for doctors. 

Further information Whilst many doctors or practitioners may offer endovenous laser for varicose veins treatment, only very few have been accredited by the Australasian College of Phlebology to provide this service.


Phlebologists are qualified doctors who have a special interest in vein disease and its treatment and have undergone extensive additional training. In Australia they are credentialed by The Australasian College of Phlebology (ACP).
