Dr Peter Hansen was born in Gladstone, but has lived in Brisbane since age five. His tertiary education began with a Bachelor of Science at the University of Queensland.

Dr Hansen's Surgical Training was undertaken throughout Queensland in addition to the United Kingdom, working in both Worcester and Coventry.
There are 3 main types of abnormal veins - Varicose veins, Reticular veins and Spider veins. The treatment options depend on which types of veins are causing trouble, and only a Specialist Vascular Surgeon can offer you all of the treatment options, so that you can decide the best choice for your circumstances.
The major treatment options range from injection treatment performed in the office with no "downtime" through to minimally-invasive treatment options (Radiofrequency Ablation) that is performed as Day Surgery. It is now rare to require traditional surgical treatment that would require an overnight stay in hospital.
