Ponosh Vascular was established by Mr Stefan Ponosh in 2016. After many years as a specialist Vascular & Endovascular Surgeon in the public and private sectors, Stefan decided to focus on providing Perth’s premier private vascular practice dedicated to delivering the very best patient experience and outcomes.
Ponosh Vascular provides the very latest, up to date and comprehensive diagnostic and management service of all vascular conditions, including :
Stefan is a Consultant Vascular & Endovascular Surgeon who has established Ponosh Vascular. Stefan’s ethos has always been to put himself in his patients shoes, providing patients a straight forward, clear and reassuring experience.
Stefan provides a contemporary comprehensive vascular service treating all aspects of vascular disease, using up to date evidence based medicine, state of the art procedures and techniques as well as his extensive personal experience. Through the use of conservative medical therapies, minimally invasive endovascular techniques and open surgery, Stefan is able to tailor your treatment for the very best outcome.
Born and raised in Perth, Stefan is local graduate of the University of Western Australia obtaining his Bachelor of Medicine & Surgery with Honours in 1999. Stefan became an accredited vascular specialist after completing his Vascular Fellowship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons in 2009, with extensive training in Perth, the Eastern States and overseas.
Stefan has worked extensively in the public and private sector for many years. Stefan was a staff specialist at both Royal Perth Hospital and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital. He was the Head of Department of Vascular Surgery for 2 years and Co-Director of the High Risk Foot Service at Sir Charles Gairdner during his tenure.
In 2016, Stefan however decided to leave the public sector, to focus on providing the very best private vascular service possible. Despite his private focus, Stefan is always happy to see public patients in his rooms and maintains close associations with the public sector. Stefan’s private practice is based at Ponosh Vascular in Nedlands and he operates extensively at St John of God Hospital Subiaco and Hollywood Private Hospital.
In September 2020 our dreams of a truly bespoke vascular centre were realised by moving into our new rooms and treatment centre at the Hollywood Consulting Centre.
Stefan has published extensively on various areas of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery and has a keen interest in teaching. He has been the Director of Vascular Training at Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital, a proctor/educator for several new technologies for a variety of medical device companies and continues to teach junior medical staff in his practice.
Stefan away from work loves to travel and have the right work-life balance with his partner Anna and their 5 children.
Ponosh Vascular has our own in-house, fully accredited integrated vascular ultrasound service – Perth Vascuscan. Having our own dedicated service allows us to have the highest quality imaging, direct control and of course the best service for our patients. Vascular outcomes are often based on the quality of our imaging and with our state of the art service, our quality is second to none.
