Vein Treatment

Dr Rice is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Phlebology.

Dr Rice’s interest in venous disease has been enhanced with the introduction of endovenous laser ablation as an alternative to the more traditional surgical treatment of varicose veins.

Dr Rice is the only practitioner in the ACT performing this minimally invasive treatment of varicose veins. He works closely with specialist vascular sonographers to provide this service.

Dr Rice is supported by a small devoted team who will ensure you receive the highest quality service & care.
